After the resounding victory over RKC Waalwijk (5-1), Feyenoord eliminated another game. In the last six games, the Rotterdam team can lose twice. It means that winning against ‘the right row’ is enough for the Rotterdam team’s 16th championship.

Feyenoord left the field to loud applause after the simple and great victory against RKC. After the Cup knockout against Ajax and an unpleasant night at De Kuip, Arne Slot’s team quickly straightened itself out and came one step closer to the national title.

A Vurnon Anita hit was the only stressful moment for Arne Slot and his players. RKC’s small midfielder’s volley was headed just wide of the goal line by Quilindschy Hartman. But otherwise, the home game against coach Joseph Oosting’s Brabant team was an easy night for the Rotterdam team.

Oussama Idrissi shot just for Etienne Vaessen at the goalkeeper, Mats Wieffer headed home and Lutsharel Geertruida’s shot wide, but RKC went 3-0 down at halftime. Wieffer saw his cross disappear into the goal through Yassin Oukili, Igor Paixão finished off a rebound after a shot from Santiago Giménez hit the post and Quilindschy Hartman saw his cross that nobody touched and went to the far post.

‘Use your brain’

With the home game against AS Roma next Thursday (6:45 p.m.), Feyenoord once again made it clear that objects must be thrown onto the pitch. That went wrong against Ajax with the lighter to Davy Klaassen’s head, but the club management had also seen what was on the pitch afterwards. The Feyenoord players wore shirts with the text ‘Use your mind and support your club’ and hope that against AS Roma, where there are no nets in part of the stadium because UEFA does not consider it desirable in relation to the television record, they will will present without problems. approve.

It remains to be seen if Alireza Jahanbakhsh will start. Iran’s right winger was slightly injured and withdrew before the match. Igor Paixão replaced him. So he made one before the break and soon scored again after the break. The Brazilian was the final point of a showy attack in which Sebastian Szymanski sent Santiago Giménez to the bottom with a single blow. The Mexican left the ball clean with a subtle heel shot for Paixao who without problems made it 4-0 on the scoreboard.

And Feyenoord was not done yet. Orkun Kökçü crossed midfield and his deep pass from him to Giménez was perfect. The Mexican finished off with skill. Giménez scored for the sixth consecutive time. With nine goals and one assist, Giménez was directly involved in ten goals in his last ten games for Feyenoord in all competitions.

Julen Lobete’s 5-1 only had statistical value. The big win brings Feyenoord another big step closer to the national title. The team still plays against FC Utrecht, which is in seventh place. In addition, the low midfielders of the first division continue to pass: Go Ahead Eagles (12), Vitesse (13), FC Emmen (15), Excelsior (16) and Cambuur (18). Therefore, to become a champion, the correct rank must be conquered.
