Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion (Alkmaar).
AZ Alkmaar and Vitesse will switch their focus on domestic competitions as the two teams are out of the Europa League.
AZ still has 100% record in the league after winning their first 2 games while Vitesse started well also but with a win and a draw. The hosts have been banging in goals this early season, they defeated Breda 5-0 and defeated Emmen 4-1 also.
Emmen tried their best last weekend but still got beaten 4-1 by AZ as they allowed 4 goals but replied once. It was AZ who scored first in the game and Emmen equalized 2 minutes later but AZ went on to score 3 more goals
AZ have now scored 9 goals in 2 games in this new season that some have predicted they will struggle.
Meanwhile Vitesse dominated their game last weekend against Heerenveen, which no one expected. They had 8 shots on target against Heerenveen’s and 15 shots off target against Vitesse. But they couldn’t win the game.
Vitesse are sitting in the 3rd position and looks set to achieve a good height this season.
