Preview: Feyenoord vs. RKC Waalwijk - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Eredivisie clash between Feyenoord and RKC Waalwijk, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Looking to end a barren run of four league games without a victory, Feyenoord welcome RKC Waalwijk to De Kuip on Sunday.

RKC are on the verge of retaining their top-flight status, but they need at least a point from this one in order to lay any fears to rest.

Feyenoord ended a two-game losing streak following a 1-1 stalemate against Heracles Almelo at the Erve Asito on Thursday.

Dick Advocaat's men took the lead in the second half through Orkun Kokcu, but that advantage only lasted for four minutes as Sinan Bakis restored parity from the spot moments later.

As a result of that draw, De Stadionclub are now guaranteed to finish in fourth spot with no possibility of a higher or lower finish.

Nonetheless, Sunday's hosts will aim to preserve their exceptional record in this fixture as they have won four of the last five editions.

However, Feyenoord were held to a 2-2 draw in October's reverse fixture where they had to come from behind twice.

RKC Waalwijk picked up their first victory in six outings courtesy of a crucial 2-1 triumph over FC Twente on Thursday.

Fred Grim's men found themselves behind early in the second half to Danilo's strike, before Sylla Sow netted a brace in next to no time to turn the game on its head.

Waalwijk remain three points clear of the drop and are on course to extend their two-year stay in the Eredivisie.

Saturday's visitors made life difficult for themselves in the final third of the season, but it looks as if they have done enough to stay afloat.

Team News

Bart Nieuwkoop suffered a thigh injury on the last day of February, and as a result, he is ruled out of Sunday's game.

The duo of Steven Berghuis and Jens Toornstra are eligible to participate once again after fully serving their three-game and one-game bans respectively.

A recurring muscle injury has hampered Christian Conteh's season, limiting him to just one appearance in all competitions.

RKC's Morad El Haddouti is unavailable for the clash due to an ankle injury which he picked up when he came on as a second-half substitute back in November.

Feyenoord possible starting lineup:
Marsman; Geertruida, Spajic, Senesi, Malacia; Toornstra, Kokcu, Teixeira; Berghuis, Bozenik, Linssen

RKC Waalwijk possible starting lineup:
Lamprou; Quasten, Touba, Meulensteen, Bakari; Anita, Van der Venne, Tahiri; Oosting, Sow, Daneels
