Feyenoord vs Slavia PragueUEFA Europa League Conference, KO: 20:00 Sep 30, 2021, Feyenoord Stadium
An open contest is predicted when Feyenoord host Slavia Prague in a UEFA Europa Conference League Group E fixture at Feyenoord Stadium. Both teams have good quality in attack and look set to produce goals on Thursday.
Feyenoord endured a frustrating evening in their opening fixture in the Conference League as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Maccabi Haifa. They dominated the possession and created several chances but failed to find the cutting edge in attack.
It has been a solid start to the season for Feyenoord who are challenging near the top of the Eredivisie. They have won their last three matches and will be keen to bounce back from the result at Maccabi Haifa.
Feyenoord have an impressive home record and are currently on a six-match winning run on their own turf. The goals have also flowed freely for Arne Slot’s men, who have scored five goals twice in that run and triumphed 5-3 over NEC in the Eredivisie last Saturday.
Slavia Prague have also made a fine start to the season and beat Union Berlin 3-1 in their opening fixture in the Europa League. Alexander Bah opened the scoring in the first half while Jan Kuchta and Ivan Schranz added further goals after the break.
Jindrich Trpisovsky’s men are challenging near the top of the Czech Liga and have won their last five matches across all competitions. They have also impressed going forward and scored four times for the second straight match in a 4-1 victory over Hradec Kralove last Sunday.
Slavia Prague often struggle on their travels on the continent and were beaten 2-1 at Legia Warsaw in the Europa League qualifiers before dropping to the Conference League.

Feyenoord have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 11/10 by bet365 to win. A victory for Slavia Prague is valued at 5/2 with Sporting Index while a draw is set at odds of 11/4 with SBK.
Given Feyenoord’s fine record at home and with Slavia Prague often struggling on their travels on the continent, I am leaning towards a win for the Dutch team.
