FC Twente chasing their third win in a row

2009/10 Eredivisie champions FC Twente are having an unstable season so far. With two wins two defeats and a draw, The Reds find themselves having four fewer points than they did the last term at this stage. On the positive side, Twente were the only team to hold champions Ajax to a draw in their second match of the season.

Surprisingly, coach Ron Jans suffered defeat at the hands of newcomers Cambuur. However, the Tukkers bounced back quickly. Notably, two fine wins against Utrecht and Vitesse Arnheim saw them move closer to European spots. Ultimately, that will be coach Jans’ and his team’s main goal for this season.

Twente key points

  • BTTS happened in Twente’s seven of the last ten matches
  • Twente failed to score in two of their last ten matches
  • 2.9 is the average goals scored per game in Twente’s last ten matches

AZ Alkmaar to get back to winning ways 

This is Alkmaar’s worst start to an Eredivisie season since the 2015/16 season. Despite this, AZ finished in the top six in all seasons since 2014/15 /. Also, they finished third on two occasions and second once during that period. Az won the Eredivisie title twice and the KNVB cup four times.

Just one win and three defeats in four games saw AZ lay deep in the relegation zone. However with a match in hand on all of the teams ahead of them, makes them candidates to leave that position soon. Nonetheless, coach pascal Jansen’s team suffered a disappointing loss last time out to Heracles. Now they will look for a win against a team they beat twice last season.

AZ Key Points

  • AZ won just one of their last five away games
  • Alkmaar had three clean sheets in ten games
  • The average goals scored in AZ’s last ten matches is 2.8
