On Thursday night, Twente host Alkmaar at De Grolsch Veste Stadium, as the home team look to record a third straight victory in the Eredivisie.
Twente have recorded wins over Utrecht and Vitesse last time out in the Dutch top-flight. The victories were much-needed, as the home team had failed to win any of their opening three league matches. They have also won just three of their previous 17 matches in the Eredivisie.
