Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

The stats suggest we don't have an obvious winner here, but good reason to think Fortuna and AZ Alkmaar will score 2 or more goals between them. Goals have flowed freely when they've gone head-to-head in years gone by, and neither Danny Buijs or Maarten Martens has suffered the frustration of many 0-0s of late either. The bookies predict over 1.5 goals too, with top odds of 1.29 equating to about a 75% probability.
