League leaders Feyenoord will entertain second-placed AZ Alkmaar at De Kuip in a top-of-the-table Eredivisie clash on Sunday.

Just two points separate them at the top of the standings, so a win would put AZ in first place, while if the hosts secure a win, they’ll open up a decent gap at the top of the table.

Both teams have endured identical results in their last four league games, winning two games and playing two draws. Feyenoord returned to winning ways after back-to-back draws as they defeated Heerenveen 2-1 on Sunday.

AZ also bounced back from back-to-back draws in their previous outing as they overcame Excelsior 5-0 at home, scoring all five goals within the first 38 minutes of the game.
