AZ Alkmaar vs Twente Prediction & Match Preview

AZ Alkmaar vs Twente
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion (Alkmaar).

Twente had just gained promotion to this top division. And they really are getting a taste of the tough life in the Eredivisie. They did put an end to their long losing run the last day, but it was against an easier opponent, which definitely the hosts are not this weekend.

Moreover, Alkmaar is in the hunt for the top-most spot and is currently placed second in the table, even above the mighty PSV.

Logic dictates a smooth day for the Cheeseheads.

AZ Alkmaar vs Twente Prediction

AZ has lost just twice in their preceding twenty match-days, and recorded a combined scoreline of 10-0, from their recent two games alone. Keep note that the latest game was against PSV, which they won 4-0, and the one before that was in the Europa, which they won 6-0.

In addition, the team kept clean sheets in six of their prior eight battles and were invincible in nine of their former ten appearances at home.

They had also kept their nets clean in seven of their past ten home ties and scored twice or more in four of the last five here.

Against this opponent, they have maintained absolute domination since 2015, and particularly so at this ground.

Finally, the Tukkers lost four of their recent five overall games, and their latest two on the road.

Taking these observations into account, count on a home win this Saturday.
