AZ Alkmaar Preview

AZ Alkmaar’s six-game unbeaten streak across all competitions ended last weekend, as they suffered a disappointing 0-2 home loss at the hands of Excelsior. It was the single game in their last ten fixtures in which they have failed to find the back of the net. Despite the defeat, AZ still sit in a comfortable 5th position in the Eredivisie table tied on 12 points with the 4th-placed Feyenoord, just three points behind the current leaders PSV Eindhoven. Alkmaar’s main issue in this early part of the season has been their inefficient attack as they hold the worst attacking record in top five with just ten goals scored in six rounds. Wout Weghorst has enjoyed an incredible start to the season as he is currently the Eredivisie’s topscorer with six goals and one assist in his six league appearances. AZ can count on their home form ahead of this clash despite their defeat at the hands of Excelsior last weekend. Prior to this loss, AZ were on a six-game winning streak across all competitions at home, scoring at least two goals in each of these. The bad news is that Alkmaar have only won once in their last five home meetings with Feyenoord in the Eredivisie, while losing three in the process.

AZ Alkmaar Team News

Levi Opdam is a doubt, but Calvin Stengs is still out through a cruciate ligament injury.

Feyenoord Preview

Feyenoord started their 2017/18 competitive season brightly, but their recent form has been terrible. They have lost four of their last five games across all competitions, with their only win in this term coming against ADO Den Haag in the KNVB Beker Cup a fortnight ago. The Rotterdammers suffered a disappointing 0-2 home loss at the hands of the newcomers NAC Breda last time out in the Eredivisie and followed this up with a 3-1 defeat on the road at SSC Napoli in their Champions League midweek clash. Feyenoord have struggled to find the back of the net over the past three weeks, having netted just one goal in their last five competitive fixtures. The good news is that they looked decent at the back in this early part of the campaign, conceding just six goals in six rounds. The bad thing is that Feyenoord have lost three of their last five away games across all competitions, scoring just once in the process. Steven Berghuis and Jean-Paul Boetius have both been in fine shape in this early part of the season, as the pair bagged seven goals and two assists between them. Feyenoord should feel confident ahead of this clash as they have won four of their last five meetings with AZ Alkmaar across all competitions, scoring at least three goals in each of these.

Feyenoord Team News

Eric Fernando Botteghin and Jan-Arie van der Heijden are both doubts, but Nicolai Jorgensen and Kenneth Vermeer are both missing through injury.
