FEYENOORD GET A TRIP TO THE LANE

Feyenoord have been paired with Tottenham Hotspur in the first knockout phase of the Uefa Cup. The first leg is at De Kuip on 14 or 15 February 2007, while the return at White Hart Lane is scheduled for 22 February. The match-up with Martin Jol’s side brings Hossam Ghaly back to De Kuip for the first time since his move to the Lilywhites. If Feyenoord progress, their last-32 opponents will be the winners of the match between Sporting Braga of Portugal and Italy’s Parma.

Feyenoord and Spurs are no strangers on the European stage. The most famous match between the clubs was undoubtedly the 1974 UEFA Cup final. The first leg that time was at White Hart Lane, where Wiel Coerver’s side secured a 2-2 draw. Back in Rotterdam the cup was won with a 2-1 victory.

The sides have since met competitively on two occasions. In 1983-84 Feyenoord went down 2-4 in London and 0-2 on home turf in the second round of the Uefa Cup, while eight years later they locked horns in a Cup Winners’ Cup quarterfinal that produced just one goal in a nail-biting hundred and eighty minutes, Feyenoord going through thanks to a Joseph Kiprich strike in the home leg.

The clubs have met twice in preseason friendly in recent years, drawing 2-2 in August 2002, while the 2004 match between the two ended with a 2-1 win for Feyenoord, with Dirk Kuyt scoring both goals for the red and whites.
