Can in-form Cambuur cause an upset against AZ in the Eredivisie on Sunday? Read our top three expert predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Cambuur Double Chance

After a somewhat slippery start, newly-promoted Cambuur have really found their feet of late and their superb 4-0 triumph at Sparta Rotterdam last weekend was their fourth win in five Eredivisie fixtures. AZ meanwhile, have only won two of their opening six domestic matches of the campaign and having played in Europe on Thursday, they might have fatigue to contend with against a high-energy Cambuur on Sunday. With that considered, the hosts are worth backing in the double chance market.

Over 2.5 Goals

Cambuur were hugely entertaining in the Dutch second-tier last season and Henk de Jong’s men are already starting to become one of the must-watch sides in the Eredivisie. Three of their last four games produced over 2.5 goals and the net rattled 5.75 times on average per contest. Cambuur’s commitment to attacking football promises to transform their clash with AZ into another thrilling spectacle and we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to be scored again.

Both Teams to Score

That same front-foot approach opens up an opportunity in the both teams to score market this weekend. BTTS has already landed in four of Cambuur’s seven league skirmishes since the summer, while three of AZ’s last five games in the division also delivered action at both ends. We don’t expect any clean sheets to be secured on Sunday and backing goals at both ends could reap dividends again.

Cambuur vs AZ: Match Preview

Cambuur team news

Erik Schouten is Cambuur’s only injury concern and manager Henk de Jong has a deep pool of players to pick from elsewhere. The Yellow-Blues performed superbly last weekend when they trounced Sparta 4-0 in Rotterdam and on Sunday, Cambuur are going on the hunt for their fourth successive Eredivisie victory in Leeuwarden.

AZ team news

Ernest Poku is still sidelined for AZ and the midfielder isn’t expected to feature on Sunday. AZ rattled five goals past Go Ahead Eagles in their last league assignment, though their hard-fought 1-0 win over Jablonec in the Europa Conference League was far more testing. Pascal Jansen played a full-strength team against the Czechian outfit and his troops could be a little battle-weary this weekend as a result.
