In the meantime, Twente got its first point of the season last time and is going into the competition this weekend in search of his first victory.
Prediction for this match
After a defeat against Fortuna Sittard on matchday one, Twente led defending champions Ajax to a 1-1 draw at the Grolsch Veste stadium on Sunday.
Ron Jans‘s men were ready for another disappointing outing than Sebastian Haller‘s punch at the start of the second half seemed to be the winner, however Robin Propper showed up with an 87th minute leveler to secure some of the loot.
The Tukkers now have a run of six games without a win, going back to the last matchday of last season when they defeated the now relegated ADO Den Haag 3-2.
Saturday’s visitors hope to end this difficult period against a team that has not won any of the last nine matches between the teams.
Cambuur was defeated 4-1 on Saturday at the Philips Stadium in the second division against last year’s runner-up PSV Eindhoven.
Henk de Jong‘s men had to climb a mountain at halftime thanks to goals from Davy Propper and Eran Zahavi, in front of goals in the second half of Noni Madueke and Olivier Boscagli on both sides of a Alex Bangura Consolation strike put the outcome beyond doubt.
The yellow and blue are currently at the bottom of the list with the most goals conceded after the first two rounds of the game.
Though it’s just getting started, the hosts on Saturday will be keen to get their season up and running so as not to be left too far behind.

Twente will be back without the services of Václav Cerny and Julio Pleguezuelowho have been pausing with knee injuries since the end of last season.
defender Kik Pierie is also excluded for the home side, as he continues to have a back problem that he got in April.
Jody Lukoki missed by a damaged knee while Ricky van Wolfswinkel will miss a second game in a row due to a ruptured muscle.
Cambuurs Calvin Mac-Intosch was made off at halftime last time and the 32-year-old is doubtful for competition this weekend.
Marco Tol was used in the above game for Mac-Intosch and should be in the starting XI for this game.
Cambuur possible starting line-up:
Stevens; Bangura, Schouten, Tol, Schmidt; Maulun, Breij, Hoedemakers; Kallon, Doodeman, Hendriks
FC Twente possible starting line-up:
Unnerstall; Smal, Oosterwolde, Propper, Troop; Zerrouki, Bosch, Vlap; Menig, Ugalde, Ilic
Probability: Cambuur 1-1 FC Twente
Cambuur will desperately try to put an end to their losing streak and breathe life into their domestic campaign. On the other hand, Twente is looking for all three points after only taking one last break. However, we are backing some of the loot, which shouldn’t make either side too dissatisfied with the full-time whistle.
