AZ Alkmaar are flying high in the Eredivisie right now with only Ajax above them in the table. They’ve already spanked the other two of the big three in Holland with 3-0 and 4-0 wins away to Feyenoord and PSV although the latter victory was helped by an early red card.
AZ Alkmaar face the group whipping boys Astana in the Europa League on Thursday which means they may well stick with the same side that routed PSV last weekend for this tie. If they do then Teun Koopmeiners looks a good pick for 1st goalscorer against a struggling FC Twente side.
Twente are conceding roughly two goals per game on average while AZ Alkmaar are pushing three scored in each match. Koopmeiners has scored eight goals this season with half of those breaking the deadlock and he also takes the penalties. 6/1 for the Dutchman to open the scoring today looks a good price on that basis and we’re backing him for 0.5 points each way with 888.
