Best Tip: Both teams to score

After surveying all relevant statistics, including historical head-to-head (H2H) data, we have come to the conclusion that this fixture will deliver both happiness and despair to both sets of supporters. We expect both NEC and AZ Alkmaar to find the back of the net during the 90 mins, but the ultimate victor of the match seems less clear. The odds point towards a both teams to score bet, and that's what we'd recommend going with.
