Feyenoord vs AZ Alkmaar
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Thursday, 26 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: De Kuip (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord have got off to an unbeaten start in the league. However, the squad have tasted success just twice from their six games so far, and have been forced to share the spoils on every other occasion.
Their most recent outing saw them salvage no more than a point in a six-goal thriller with FC Emmen, while at home, they came out on top against Den Haag with 3-2 scoreline.
On the other hand, Arne Slot’s men have already stumbled in one of their respective clashes. Nevertheless, Alkmaar have registered a win four times in the new campaign and are currently just a point away from the table toppers.
The away side will also be coming into the tie this week on the back of a narrow 1-0 win over Den Haag on the road. However, Alkmaar will have to be a lot warier on Thursday as Feyenoord are without a doubt a tough team to take down on home soil.

Feyenoord vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction
The hosts have been showing real conviction in their clashes on home soil and were rewarded with a win in their previous matchup here. Furthermore, Feyenoord are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions at home and have picked up the win thrice in those fixtures as well.
It also needs saying that the only defeat for the counterparts so far came in one of their outings. Taking into account that Feyenoord have also been securing the bragging rights in their last five head to head games in a running here as well, a defeat for AZ Alkmaar is certainly on the cards in this one.
Additionally, the visitors have got their names on the scoresheet in each of their last three trips on the road. Considering that all of their previous eight visits to this venue have also seen them breach their opponents, by all means, expect neither side to walk away with a clean intact at the end of the ninety minutes.
