Jong AZ vs Twente
Netherlands- Eerste Divisie.
Date: Monday, 26 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: AFAS Trainingscomplex (Wijdewormer).
The hosts are without a win in the last 9 matches they played in the league. At present they are on a 3 match losing streak too. The reserves of AZ Alkmaar were 16th in the league last season and are pretty much looking at a similar finish this time around.
With half of their league games lost, the team has only 1 win this entire domestic season. They have conceded a whopping 29 goals already, while only scoring 19. With about half of the season still remaining they have to up their game, or they will stay at 17th spot in the table.
They have not won any of their previous 4 home games. The last win in front of their home fans was in September when they defeated table toppers-Eagles. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of their previous 5 home matches. The similar scoreline is visible in their last 3 defeats as well, with all those matches ending 3-1.
The Tukkers have been doing ok this season. After 14 rounds completed they are 5th in the table, with 8 wins and 4 losses. The forwards have found the net a total of 27 times while they conceded 15 goals only. So overall they have done a good job at the first half of the league.
But they have lost their recent 2 matches in the league against top teams like Eagles and Den Bosch. These losses came after a 4 match win streak in all competitions. They are low on confidence which may be seen as an opportunity by their opponents for Monday.
In the 6 away matches they played across the country, they have 3 wins and lost only once. Caretaker Manager will be happy that his plans are working out on the field. After relegation, the team held up and are favorites to go back to Eredivisie this season itself.

Jong AZ vs Twente: Prediction
The home teams have found the net 5 times in arrow recently. They have also conceded in all those games as well. The away team has also been on a scoring spree in the last 8 matches on the road on the trot. So we can expect both the teams to find the back of the net in this upcoming match and bet on the same with1.50 odd.
The hosts have been struggling to find wins recently. They are winless in the last 4 matches at home and the most recent home match was a loss to FC Oss. Since the visitors have been excellent in the last 6 away games, which has 4 wins, I think they will emerge victors here. So a bet can be placed on Twente to win with 1.57 odds.
