First Eredivisie Round. Az Alkmaar, Ajax and Heracles face Heerenveen, Sparta Rotterdam and Roda Kerkrade after their European matches played in the midweek.
Az Alkmaar reached the Europa League playoffs by winning 1-2 in Greece, vs PAS Giannina, already beaten in Alkmaar 1-0 the previous week.
John Van der Brom's men have always showed an offensive mentality with loads of goals scored and offering great shows in the past seasons. The trend should be similar in the current season: the skilled striker Vincent Janssen was transferred to Tottenham Hotspurs, but the club has wisely replaced him with Wout Weghorst.
Heerenveen also have a clear offensive scheme and we expect to see goals here keeping a preference for the hosts.
Ajax have got the access to Champions League Playoffs but have reached this goal suffering a lot: after the 1-1 draw in the 1st Leg at Amsterdam Arena vs PAOK, have then won the 2nd leg tipping over the score thanks to the 2 goals of Vincent Klaasen, probably the most talented player of the squad.
The double clash vs PAOK has given a clear indication about Ajax: the defense is not at the same level of the attack. In sight of the away game in Rotterdam vs Sparta, we see BTTS and OVER 2.5 interesting choices.
Heracles have begun the season with a big delusion. Indeed the dream to reach the EUL Group Stage found an early end in the 3rd round when John Stegeman's men were defeated by Arouca (1-0, 0-0).
Heracles have appeared to be not that incivise when it comes to create occasions and mainly to score. These problems could appear again in the away game vs Roda.
The hosts also have some troubles in the attacking positions as Mytides, Schakin and Palacios are not completely integreted with the rest of the squad yet.
