FEYENHOORD V SPARTA ROTTERDAM
This will be the 110th competitive Rotterdam derby between these sides with Feyenoord currently leading the historical head-to-head with 66 wins to Sparta's 18.
Dick Advocaat's men also won the head-to-head battle in the 2020/21 regular season, drawing 1-1 at De Kuip before leaving Het Kasteel with a 2-0 win.
Sparta are unbeaten in their previous two visits to Feyenoord, but their last win came in March 2000 when they ran out 2-1 winners.
Feyenoord ended the recent campaign with the Eredivisie's fifth best home record after registering nine wins and six draws across 17 matches with only AZ and Ajax leaving with a victory.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
PORTO V BELENENSES
FC Porto guaranteed a UEFA Champions League group stage spot next season as they defeated Rio Ave FC, but that should not be regarded as a great achievement given that they were aiming for the league title and have failed to do so.
Belenenses SAD lost to CD Santa Clara last time out, which took them out of the European race. However, Petit's main objective was to secure top-flight competition and they achieved it with room to spare.
Both sides should rotate heavily, but the hosts will have far more individual quality than their opponents and a home win is expected.
Prediction: Both teams to score
