Tomorrow at 13:30 we will see one of the most volatile football rivalries in world football kick-off – Ajax versus Feyenoord.
So extreme was the violence between the two sets of supporters in this clash that the Dutch FA implanted a rule in 2009 of banning away fans at in the two matches each season between these teams for the next five seasons.
What makes this tie even more mouth-watering is that both clubs currently sit on 37 points in the Eredivisie table. With Twente dropping points at home and PSV falling to a shock defeat against Zwolle, a win for either Ajax or Feyenoord may prove decisive in the title race and would put either only one point behind first placed Twente.
And even though away fans are not allowed at these fixtures at the moment, the Feyenoord fans gave their players their own send off in the final training session before they leave for battle in Amsterdam. Watch the video below to see it, and remember it is a training session!
