AZ Alkmaar Preview

AZ Alkmaar had an impressive 61% ball possession, 15 goalscoring opportunities and even had the lead against PSV Eindhoven last weekend, but they still lost the game 3-2. AZ have enjoyed a strong pre-season campaign, having won seven of their eight friendlies. AZ have looked very dangerous going forward over the past month and a half, having scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine games across all competitions. They managed to score twice against a PSV side who had the joint best defensive record in the Eredivisie last term. Wout Weghorst seems to be in good shape again after he managed to score 13 goals for AZ Alkmaar last season. At home, AZ have only lost twice in their last 13 home fixtures across all competition and are currently on a four-game winning streak. In addition, AZ have scored at least two goals in each of their last five home games across all competitions. Furthermore, AZ Alkmaar have won three of their last four home meetings with ADO Den Haag, scoring at least two goals in three of these. Head-to-head, Alkmaar have won five of their last six meetings with ADO Den Haag in the Eredivisie.

ADO Den Haag Preview

Meanwhile, ADO Den Haag had an impeccable pre-season campaign, having won each of their ten friendlies. However, they kicked off the new Eredivisie season in a disappointing manner, losing 0-3 at home at the hands of FC Utrecht. They struggled to keep the ball out of their own net last term, and it seems that they are having the same problems this season. They only brought in two defenders this summer and both came on free transfers. ADO can count on their away form over the past five months as they have won ten of their last eleven away games across all competitions. The bad news is that ADO Den Haag have only won once in their last four visits to the AFAS Stadion, while losing three. ADO also looked short in front of goal last season , nd they also struggled to find the back of the net last weekend. Actually, ADO and Sparta Rotterdam are the only sides to have not scored on the opening day of the new Eredivisie season. Mike Havenaar has been their top scorer last season, but he left the club this summer.

Robert Zwinkels and Nick Kuipers are both doubts ahead of this trip.
