Feyenoord is one step away from the third home final of the Dutch Cup in five years. At the moment, the Rotterdam players have 13 national Cup titles, which is six times less than the record holder of the tournament, Ajax. Brada had previously reached the cup final four times, winning one trophy. The case was in 1973, when with a score of 2:0 they defeated Nijmegen (the final of 1973 year was by the way, also played in Rotterdam).
All those who follow Dutch football know that with the arrival of the head coach of Feyenoord affairs of the team went well. Yes, Rotterdammers flew out of the Europa League, but in internal tournaments Rotterdam players play very well. Feyenoord has never lost an Eredivisie match with Advocaat. The series without losses currently has 13 matches, 10 of which were won. Last weekend, the Advocaat team played a draw with PSV (1-1) in Eindhoven, and somewhere one could even feel sorry for the Rotterdam team that they did not realize several profitable moments and did not take the victory from the Phillips Stadium.
Thanks to the latest success, Feyenoord now ranks 3rd in the Eredivisie table, six points behind the leaders, Ajax and AZ. And head-to-head meetings with them are not that far. Taking into account the bad form of the Amsterdam team at the moment and the instability of Alkmaar, Feyenoord may also be able to join the championship race. But for now, the home semi-final of the Dutch Cup is on the agenda.
It will be the first home match of the Rotterdam players in the current tournament, and all tickets have been sold out. The support of the hosts will be crazy.
On the way to the semi-final the Rotterdammers had three rounds, winning all away matches with a difference of one ball. In the first round they defeated Kambur (2:1), the leader of Eerste Divisie, which at the end of the season will certainly increase in class. Then Feyenoord passed Fortuna. On the first attempt, the teams played 65 minutes in Sittard, and then the match was interrupted due to fog. A week later, the game was completed. The score 1-1 obtained in the first series of the confrontation could have been final, and the winner of the pair would have been determined in a penalty shootout, but on 120 minutes Luciano Narsingh scored the winning goal from the handover of Luis Sinisterra.
Well, in the quarterfinals, the team defeated Heerenveen at Abe Lenstra 1-0 (a goal scored at the beginning of the match by Leroy Fer)
As for Breda, this team was a real sensation of the current Dutch Cup. The path to the future semifinals the Yellow-black started with a home victory over Emmen with a score of 3:2. In the second round, NAC had problems with Amateur club Sparta from Nijkerk, scoring the only goal in overtime.
At the end of 2019, Breda said goodbye to coach Ruud Brood, who was dismissed due to unsatisfactory results. In January, the coach of the youth team Willem Weijs worked with the team, under whose leadership NAC sensationally defeated PSV in 1/8 finals of the Dutch Cup with a score of 2:0.
Since February, 44-year-old German specialist Peter Hyballa has been working with Breda. The German made his debut in a home match between the Yellow-Blacks and Oss, a team from the bottom of the Eerste Divisie table, and that game ended in a 1-1 draw. But five days later, Hyballa’s Breda made another sensation in the Cup, beating AZ Alkmaar 3-1. NAC is in no way inferior to AZ, played bravely and fervently, and received a well-deserved reward for their efforts.
Now there is one more serious test waiting for them. And it should be noted that Breda players are not afraid of Feyenoord. At least, that`s what they say in the interview.
After their victory in Alkmaar, the Yellow-Blacks won two more matches in their league, first beating the away team Ajax (4):2), and then at home minimally defeated Almere City, one of their direct competitors in the fight for promotion in the class through the playoffs. And over the weekend, Hyballa’s team in Nijmegen played a draw with NEC, another of their competitors. In general, Brada approaches the game in Rotterdam in a fighting mood and with the hope of another sensation.
