Player to Watch: Calvin Stengs

Stengs has been the chief playmaker in the Feyenoord team this season, setting up seven goals for his teammates.

We're backing Stengs to impress once again this weekend when Feyenoord play host to NEC and could even see the midfielder adding to his five league goals for the season.

The 25-year-old is enjoying his first season with Feyenoord having made his name at AZ Alkmaar, and looks set to top his best-ever goals return of seven which he managed in the 2020/21 season, his last Eredivisie campaign before moving to French side Nice.
