Just before the winter break, Cocu and his teammates were held to a home draw by FC Twente. In the standings, Feyenoord and Alkmaar are staying in the slipstream of OL’s future Champions League opponents.
Line-up: Gomes - Addo (Vayrynen), Lucius, Ooijer, Lamey, Simons, Cocu, Culina, Vennegoor, Beasley (Farfan), Koné (Sibon).
Feyenoord crushed Willem II 6-1 to close to within a point of the leader, while Alkmaar host ADO La Haye on Friday night and can also move just one point adrift with a win. The Dutch league will then have it’s winter break and the next round is programmed for January 14.
