Feyenoord coach Dick Advocaat is disappointed that a public can be admitted to the Europa League match of his team visiting Dinamo Zagreb. Ten thousand spectators are welcome in the Maksimir Stadium on Thursday evening.

‘It will be a difficult pot’

“I think it is a crazy construction of UEFA that the public is allowed to be present here and not with us,” said Lawyer on Wednesday at the press conference in the run-up to Feyenoord’s first game in the group stage of the Europa League.

UEFA allows a limited number of spectators for matches in the Champions League and the Europa League. If the national health authorities agree, a maximum of 30 percent of the capacity may be used. Only supporters of the home team may be admitted.

On November 5, Feyenoord will play at home against Dinamo Zagreb, but at that time there is still no public welcome in stadiums in the Netherlands. The cabinet decided last week that all matches in professional football will be played without spectators for four weeks.

“I prefer an audience, but then on both sides,” said Advocaat. “For us this situation is very negative, but it will take a while.”

The 73-year-old coach expects Feyenoord to have a hard time in Zagreb in any case. “After the draw, everyone already said that this team is potentially the best. It will be a difficult game, but as a trainer I find it interesting to see how far we are.”

Feyenoord cannot appeal to Leroy Fer against Dinamo Zagreb, who fell out against Sparta Rotterdam (1-1) last weekend with a hamstring injury. He will probably be replaced in midfield by Lutsharel Geertruida.

The match between Feyenoord and Dinamo Zagreb starts on Thursday at 9 p.m. in the Croatian capital and is led by Finnish referee Mattias Gestranius.
