    Feyenoord - Vitesse Arnhem

    Two closely matched teams face each other this Saturday when Feyenoord host Vitesse Arnhem at their Stadion Feijenoord.

    The two teams occupy the 4th and 3rd place in the standings respectively and are just 6 points apart. Therefore, expect a tightly fought clash with lots of goal scoring situations.

    FC Twente - SC Heerenveen

    SC Heerenveen travel to face a strong opponent from top 6 this weekend.

    The home side are undefeated in their previous 6 encounters and will do their best to continue that series. SC Heerenveen are also showing great results recently and will definitely make things hard for FC Twente.

    FC Utrecht - AFC Ajax

    FC Utrecht welcome the reigning league champions AFC Ajax at their Stadion Galgenwaard this Sunday.

    The hosts are performing solidly at home so far but are quite mediocre in their overall results. AFC Ajax will do their best to leapfrog PSV at the first spot and will most likely grab the 3 points in the upcoming clash.

    FC Groningen - PSV Eindhoven

    PSV Eindhoven will be eager to increase their lead on the top of the table this weekend when they visit the struggling side of FC Groningen.

    The team from Groningen have won just 1 of their last 6 matches and this won’t boost their confidence for the fixture against the league leaders. PSV have a great opportunity to increase the gap between them and second-placed Ajax, so surely they won’t be holding back this Sunday.
