AZ Alkmaar v Lyon Preview

AZ Alkmaar v Lyon Preview

Alireza Jahanbakhsh averages 3.1 shots per90 in the Eredivisie and has six goals to his name this season.

Their weird and wonderful Europa League returns on Thursday and the value lies in searching for some less heralded names. The match between AZ Alkmaar and Lyon won’t generate much interest in the British Isles but it should be entertaining.

Alkmaar have scored at least two goals in 8 out of 10 home games in the Eredivisie and they concede plenty too, no one in the top half of the league have conceded more their 32 goals in 22 games.

Going forward there is plenty to like about the Dutch side especially Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who averages 3.1 shots per90 making him the highest volume shooter in the squad.

The Iranian winger has six league goals this season and is underrated in the first goalscorer market. Back him each-way at 12/1 and if he is amongst the first 5 goalscorers we get 1/3 off the odds.
