Match Preview

Deservedly rock-bottom with the fewest wins in the division (W4, D4, L12), Breda entertain an AZ Alkmaar side that has started to find real form. It’s a mere consolation, but Breda have seen all of their four league wins to date arrive on home turf, and the hosts are unbeaten in four of their last five matches here (W3, D1, L1).
A whopping 88% of Breda’s total points have been earned at home despite the team failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine home matches. In a negative, Breda manager Mitchell van der Gaag has won just one of his five prior encounters with opposite number John van den Brom (W1, D2, L2).
Last weekend, AZ pulled four points clear in fourth place, and have now won three consecutive league games to nil. As they did in the reverse fixture against Breda, AZ won 5-0 (against Emmen) in their last outing, and have found the net in nine of their ten away matches.
The visitors are usually sound against opposition of Breda’s calibre, having scored a spectacular 15 goals in four matches against the current bottom three. Moreover, AZ have scored the opening goal in three-quarters of their league matches this term.
Players to watch: Breda’s Gervane Kastaneer has scored his side’s only goal in their last 284 minutes of Eredivisie football.
AZ’s young starlet Calvin Stengs has reportedly piqued the interest of Ajax following his rampant run of three goals in his last four appearances.
Stat attack: Six of Breda’s ten home games have been 1-0 either way at half-time.
AZ boss John van den Brom is yet to draw in ten prior encounters with Breda (W8, L2).
AZ have scored two or more goals in five of their last six Eredivisie matches.
