Feyenoord are enjoying a fine season, losing just twice in the Eredivisie – sitting second – and are unbeaten domestically since the beginning of December. The 13-time Dutch Cup winners have already knocked top-flight table toppers PSV out of this competition this season, along with a coming-from-behind 2-1 semi-final victory over Groningen back in February. Mexican striker Santiago Giménez is the man to watch for the Rotterdam club, the 22-year-old forward having plundered 24 goals in all competitions this season to already better last season's haul. Feyenoord will be playing in their home stadium, which happens to be the venue for today's game,

NEC, meanwhile, are in their fifth Dutch Cup final and are desperate to end their showpiece curse by lifting the famous trophy for the first time. The Nijmegen side have knocked out top-flight sides Go Ahead Eagles and ADO Den Haag to reach the semi-finals, where they faced second-tier Cambuur, winning after extra time thanks to a goal from Japanese midfielder Kodai Sano. Compatriot Koki Ogawa has 14 goals this season and with former Dutch international Jasper Cillessen between the sticks, Rogier Meijer's side will have more than half an eye on causing an upset.
