ten hag tUtrecht have lost their two league meetings with Feyenoord this season, but Ten Hag believes his team will lift the KNVB Cup if they believe in themselves.

Ten Hag said, ”The final is a game within itself and the fact remains that we have lost twice to Feyenoord in the league this season 3-2 in Rotterdam and 2-1 in Utrecht, but they were two similar games that could have gone either way and the small details and moments in those games proved decisive.

”We must take inspiration from our away performance in Amsterdam against Ajax last weekend and our quarter-final defeat of PSV in terms of the manner in which we played.

“We are convinced that if we play well on Sunday we can win the cup”.
