Ronald Koeman & co have won 2 & drawn 2 of their 4 league matches thus far & sit 8th in the league with 8 points. Barca have remained vulnerable in the back, having conceded in their last 5 matches on a trot across all competitions.
Meanwhile, their opponents tonight saw their dismal start to their campaign come to an end as they bagged their first 3 points of the season, in an emphatic 2-1 triump against Celta Vigo last time out, but prior to that had lost 2 & drawn 2 of their opening 4 league assignments which leaves them languishing 15th in the table with 5 points. The last meeting between the pair ended in a 1-1 stalemate.
Considering Barcelona's leaky defense, we fancy away team to win & both teams to score.
2. Fc Twente vs Az Alkamaar (Kick off 22:00pm)
Fc Twente have undergone a rejuvenation in recent weeks, having managed to win their last 2 straight games including a 4-1 thrashing of top four hopefuls Vitesse in their most recent outing & sit 9th in the Eredivise standings with 7 points.

Az Alkamaar demolished FC Twente 4-1 in their most recent clash.
All factors into consideration the best pick here is, home team to win or draw & 3+ goals to be scored.
