Den Bosch will be hoping for a better result following a 3-1 Eerste Divisie loss in their previous game against Jong Utrecht.
The only player to score from Den Bosch was Paco van Moorsel (51'). Oussama Alou (21'), Hicham Acheffay (24') and Ruben Kluivert (65') scored for Jong Utrecht.
At least three goals per game have been seen in 5 of the past 6 meetings where Den Bosch have taken part. Opposing sides scored 17 of them in this period while Blue White Dragons bagged a total of 7.
Pre-game facts show that Den Bosch:
- have not been beaten in the league by Jong AZ in their last 5 games.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 home league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 7 matches in the league. Their fans aren't happy.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Roda JC Kerkrade in Eerste Divisie competition, Jong AZ and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Patrick Pflücke (56') was the scorer for Roda JC Kerkrade.
It has become apparent that Jong AZ have made hard work of scoring goals in their past 6 clashes, netting the disappointing return of only 3. In those matches, Jong AZ have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 9. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see if that trend shall persist in this match.
Heading into this contest, Jong AZ have left without a victory over Den Bosch in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.

Team News: Den Bosch
There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the Den Bosch gaffer Erik van de Ven to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Jordy van der Winden (Knee Surgery) is sidelined.
Team News: Jong AZ
With a completely healthy group to pick from, Jong AZ manager Michel Vonk doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this game.
Our thinking is that Jong AZ will surely be able to breach the defence of this Den Bosch outfit, although it isn’t expected to be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re tipping a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Den Bosch at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
