John van den Brom were simply unstoppable at AFAS Stadion and we’ve seen goals from Svensson, Hatzidiakos, Boadu, Koopmeiners, and Johnsen. They have seen a disappointing Europa League exit beforehand but this will serve well as a means to forget all about it, as AZ hope to build on a strong campaign early in the new season.

Emmen have, interestingly, joined Eredivisie for their first time ever and we’ve seen them make an immediate impact as they caused an upset at ADO Den Haag and bagged all three points with two first-half goals in a 1-2 win. They now hope to impress at home too and although AZ could be more of a challenge, Dick Lukkien’s men will lack no high team spirits.

FC Emmen vs AZ Alkmaar: Head-to-head

  • AZ have bagged two wins and two draws in four head-to-head matchups against the rivals so far.
  • They’ve last met in October 2016, where AZ turned the contest their way (1-0) and made their way to the next round.
  • We’ve seen more than two goals on just one of those four occasions, surely promising a narrow contest on the day too.

FC Emmen vs AZ Alkmaar: Prediction

Nonetheless, AZ come into the match in red-hot form and we do see them bagging the points with a more convincing display in the attacking third this time around. Emmen have shown their character but we’ll now go for AZ to outgun them and secure the points, with an Away win coming at 1.66.

We do believe we’re in for more of a thriller as Emmen come very motivated to build on the confidence booster earned in their first Eredivisie outing ever.

With that in mind, we do see both sides getting on the scoresheet and we’ll now also go for a high-scoring matchup with Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.57, which looks like buying money for old rope at this point.
