Winless Emmen failed to score in a third consecutive league game last time out, and have just one goal across their last 481 minutes of play.
In addition, Emmen are one of just six sides in Eredivisie history to pick up six or fewer points by this stage, and each of those teams eventually finished in the bottom three.
Still within striking distance of a podium finish, visiting AZ Alkmaar aim to bounce back following 200 minutes of play without scoring. However, they should be confident of getting back on track, given their unbeaten record this season vs current bottom-three sides (W3, D1).
