Alkmaar vs Dynamo Kiev Preview
AZ Alkmaar coach Gertjan Verbeek has promised to go on the offensive as his side look to heap more misery on Dynamo Kiev.
The Ukrainians have made a dismal start to their Group E campaign, drawing at home to Belarus' BATE Borisov before losing to Sheriff in Moldova.
AZ were then hammered 4-1 by surprise group leaders BATE but Verbeek has promised not to hold back.
"If you want to win, you must attack," he told his club's website. "We can ask Andriy Shevchenko shoot the ball into his own goal, but he is not going to.
"The new coach of Dynamo Kiev (Oleg Luzhny) is still searching. The club is much changed but the strikers I've seen are dangerous."
Verbeek has Maarten Martens and Hector Moreno back in contention for a starting place, while Gil Swerts and Adam Maher return to the squad.
Weekend goalscorer Graziano Pelle is ineligible for European competition while full-back Ragnar Klavan joins Simon Poulsen, Rasmus Elm, Erik Heijblok and Celso Ortiz on the injury list.
Luzhny, for his part, is missing Milos Ninkovic due to a head injury as he prepares for his first European match since taking temporary charge following Valeri Gazzaev's resignation on October 1.
The two sides meet for the first time with AZ, who have lost just one of their last 39 home games in Europe, looking to extend a 100% record in their previous three meetings with Ukrainian opposition.
Dynamo have won only once in Holland, a 3-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven in 1997, and have won only one of their last 11 away games in continental competition.
