AZ have a huge week upcoming. The Dutch giants, who play the Go Ahead Eagles in their Eredivisie opener, will surely have an eye on the Conference League second leg against Dundee United. In fact, with the 1-0 deficit from the first leg, AZ's path looks more stormy than ever. Their counterparts though come up with a relaxed mind. The Eagles have played two friendlies away from home and have scored a ridiculous 16 goals in the process. But, their competition this time in the form of AZ is a massive one. Also, considering that the Eagles went down 2-0 to the FC Utrecht academy recently, we can only pray for AZ to not destroy their visitors on Sunday.

AZ Alkmaar vs Go Ahead Eagles Betting Tips

AZ have always seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 wins and 4 of the 6 unbeaten ventures against the Go Ahead Eagles. But off-late, the home side has been focusing more on their defensive acumen rather than an offensive mindset. This has led to under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 games consisting of all the pre-season friendlies. Considering that AZ Alkmaar will have one eye on the Dundee United game in the upcoming week, we are pretty sure they will settle for a low-margin win and not exhaust their personnel. We expect the home side to win by two goals to nil, which leaves us with the best tip of Home / Under 2.5 for this game.

  • Best Tip: Home / Under 2.5

AZ Alkmaar Team News

Number ten Dani de Wit was highly impressive in the 1-0 defeat at Dundee United. It was a shame that he could not get an assist in the game, as his teammates failed to convert his sublime passes into the final third. Nevertheless, Sunday seems to be the perfect redemption. Dani de Wit should be one of the best players to look out for, in this game, due to his creativity. The two players who were under the lens from the Conference League game were the two right centre-halves - Pantelis Hatzidiakos and Sam Beukema. Hatzidiakos and Beukema struggled to keep their opponents from entering the final third from the right wing and were one of the reasons that their team conceded. The Go Ahead Eagles result totally depends on the performance of these three individuals.

Go Ahead Eagles

Go Ahead Eagles Team News

The Eagles will surely come to the AFAS Stadion with the objective of walking away with at least a point. We expect their forwards, Bobby Adekanye and Isac Lidberg, to play an isolated game throughout the ninety minutes of action. Stopper Jeffrey de Lange will be crucial as he could either end up conceding four against a quality side like AZ or two by his heroic efforts. It's a very young centre-back pairing that Go Ahead Eagles will field on Sunday evening (as they have played most of the pre-season games together). Jose Fontan and Jay Izdes are both 22 and they will be hoping to put up a defensive masterclass against a team like AZ, which is known for overperforming in the Eredivisie.
