Match Preview

Hosts Vitesse were stunned last time out, drawing 3-3 after scoring three times in the first half vs Den Haag. That means Vitesse have now scored three first-half goals twice his season. However, they have only managed more than a single one on three occasions before the break back on home turf (23.08% of home matches).
‘Are you not entertained?’ Twelve of Vitesse’s last 13 Eredivisie matches have produced over 2.5 goals, with both teams scoring at least twice in six. That makes for an impressive 3.92 average total goals per match across their last 13 in the league.
AZ travel here after consolidating their European hopes by easing to a 1-0 win over one of the league’s form sides, Groningen. Much more defensively astute than their hosts, AZ have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last ten league matches and have the best defensive record outside of the top-two sides, with just 1.11 conceded per match on average.
Visiting coach John van den Brom is also unbeaten in six of his last eight encounters with Vitesse (W4, D2, L2). Incongruous with the hosts’ form, at least one team has failed to score in four of those fixtures.
Players to watch: 18-year-old forward Thomas Buitink announced himself to Vitesse fans last time out with a hat-trick in his first senior-level league start for the club.
Meanwhile, AZ academy product Guus Til has scored three of his side’s last four away league goals, with two of them coming before the break.
Stat attack: AZ have scored exactly two goals in four of their last six visits to the GelreDome.
Twelve of Vitesse’s last 13 league fixtures have seen both teams find the net.
AZ have been drawing at the break in over half of their away matches this season (53.85%) – only Feyenoord have drawn more (61.54%).
