Jens Toornstra and Bart Nieuwkoop will be in the base at Feyenoord on Sunday for the game with ADO Den Haag. The midfielder and the defender are the replacements for the absent Mark Diemers and the injured Eric Botteghin respectively.
The 31-year-old Toornstra only played five minutes in the Eredivisie for Feyenoord this season. He is in midfield with Leroy Fer and Orkun Kökçü. It is not yet known why Diemers is absent from the Rotterdammers.
Nieuwkoop also gets a basic place from trainer Dick Advocaat. The 24-year-old defender already came in last week when Botteghin was injured. Nieuwkoop starts as a right back, causing Lutsharel Geertruida to move to the center. Marcos Senesi and Ridgeciano Haps are the other defenders.
Feyenoord’s attack again consists of Steven Berghuis, Nicolai Jørgensen and Bryan Linssen. Captain Berghuis is the top scorer of the Eredivisie with three goals.
Feyenoord has four points after two games, while ADO Den Haag lost the first two games. The game in De Kuip starts at 12.15 and is led by referee Dennis Higler.
Line-up Feyenoord: Bijlow; Nieuwkoop, Geertruida, Senesi, Haps; Fer, Toornstra, Kökçü; Berghuis, Jørgensen, Linssen.
