Twente Double Chance

Twente have won two games on the bounce thanks to victories over Utrecht (1-0) and Vitesse (4-1) with the latter a sublime performance in a difficult away test. AZ meanwhile, are one place off the foot of the table following a run of three defeats in four matches and the major summer exodus of their stars has left them looking a shell of the team that performed so well last term. Twente are in better form than their visitors and they look a fine price in the double chance market as a result.

Both Teams to Score

AZ have had major problems in defence this season and their habit of leaving the door open has undone much of their better work further up the pitch. Indeed, that combination produced goals at both ends in four of their last five games in all competitions, while it’s also interesting to note that the same bet landed in three of Twente’s last five assignments. With those records a factor, we’re tipping both teams to get in on the act again on Thursday.

Over 2.5 Goals

AZ’s fixtures have been action-packed so far this season and 100% of their last five games domestically and on the continent have delivered over 2.5 goals. An average of 4.0 goals hit the net per 90 minutes across Alkmaar’s last four Eredivisie tussles and their open approach to games should produce similar levels of excitement when they visit a Twente outfit that hit four goals past Vitesse last time out.

Twente vs AZ: Match Preview

Twente team news

Defender Kik Pierie is rated as doubtful for Thursday’s game, as is attacker Jody Lukoki. Fellow frontman Vaclav Cerny is a long-term absentee for Twente and he is unlikely to feature before the end of the season. Twente battered Vitesse 4-1 last weekend in what was their most impressive showing of the campaign so far. The Tukkers are also the only side to take points off champions Ajax this term.

AZ team news

AZ have few injury worries ahead of Thursday’s trip to Enschede, though key midfielder Jordy Clasie is suspended following his red card in last week’s 3-2 reverse at Heracles. Alkmaar’s domestic campaign has been a disastrous one so far and their decision to cash in on all of their prized assets during the summer transfer window has backfired spectacularly so far.
