It was a surprise to see such a score line after they had performed so well and we should think that Heracles will perform much better than away this season.

AZ Alkmaar are 2nd in the league with 2 wins and one draw. In their opening two games they scored a whopping 9 goals when they beat Breda 5-0 and then FC Emmen 4-1.

Last weekend the goals dried up when they could only draw 0-0 at home to Vitesse.

The bookmakers have AZ Alkmaar as the odds on favourites at almost 1.30 (1/3) and Heracles can be backed at 5.00 (4/1).

Heracles vs AZ Alkmaar: Prediction

AZ Alkmaar look like they are in a good position to win this game but the value on them is not too good for us.

Instead we will back them to win on the handicap. It could be a risky choice but having said that AZ are scoring goals for fun this season and usually score many goals in this fixture.

AZ will attack from the beginning but many of their games here have ended 0-0 at half time, so we will also back 2nd half for most goals.
