Ajax Amsterdam blew the one chance they had to claim maximum points in Group B's Europa League opener against Marseille as they were held to a nail-biting 3-3 draw to salvage a point. This has seen them occupy third place, two points behind AEK Athens in first place.
Prior to that, they were presented with a shot at redemption in their match against FC Twente, a side that dealt them a 3-1 defeat on the road in the previous season. They relived that memory once again as they suffered another defeat at their hands by the same scoreline on the road.
The Dutch giants find themselves on a three-match winless run in the league, picking up two draws and a loss. They have won one of their four matches so far, a run that does not match their caliber, nor does it bode well for Maurice Steijn, who is still trying to find his footing since being appointed manager.
They currently occupy twelfth place with five points in the standings and are two points ahead of the relegation playoffs. Their bid for a sixth-place finish is hindered by a three-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
Gorter; Rensch, Sutalo, Hato, Avila; Van Den Boomen, Tahirovic, Hlynsson, Mikautadze, Borges; Brobbey
Feyenoord renewed hostilities with Celtic for the first time in 53 years as they won 2-0 on the first matchday of the UEFA Champions League group stages. This was their first appearance in the elite competition since their last appearance in the 2017–18 season.
In the league, they resumed their dominant resurgence with another top-notch performance against Heerenveen, winning 6-1 at home, with all six goals coming in from different players showcasing individual brilliance.
This win saw them extend their winning run in the league to three matches, scoring a whopping seventeen goals in the process. It's safe to say that they have compensated for their unconvincing performance at the start of the season, when they were on a two-match winless run.
They currently occupy fourth place with 11 points in the standings and remain one of the five sides in the league yet to suffer defeat. Their bid for a first-place finish is hindered by a one-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
Wellenreuther; Nieuwkoop, Trauner, Hancko, Hartman; Timber, Wieffer; Paixao, Stengs, Ivanusec; Gimenez

Expert Betting Tips
Ajax Amsterdam, who, despite holding a significant dominance over their opponents in this impending encounter, are tipped to drop points due to their unconvincing performance in the league as of late and are expected to be kept at arms length in this one.
Feyenoord managed to break free from the clutches that had seen them without a win at the Johan Cruijff ArenA since 2005 by going to win 3-2 in the previous season. Having made a good start this season, they'll be hoping to add to their tally another second consecutive victory on the road.
Picking up a winner in De Klassieker can be a bit unpredictable at times; however, the visitors are the better side at the moment, and vouching for them in the draw no bet market is advisable, though we anticipate this to be a high-scoring affair by picking the total to exceed 1.5 goals in the first half, as this has been the case in three of Feyenoord's five matches in the league.
- First Half Goals - Over 1.5 for 2.20
- Draw No Bet - Feyenoord for 1.73
- Total - Over 3 for 1.76
