Go Ahead Eagles vs AZ Alkmaar Betting Tips: AZ ALKMAAR TO WIN

Go Ahead Eagles are enjoying their third season since returning to the top tier of Dutch football after recording a runner-up finish in the Eerste Divisie during the 2020-21 campaign, as their hard work managed to cement their place in the top nine for the first time in a long time.

Furthermore, the pride of the IJssel were in the race for a spot in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers a month ago, but a sharp decline in form at an inconvenient moment, during which only three points were collected out of a possible 15, resulted in the fifth-place finish remaining nothing more than an elusive dream.

However, Rene Hake's squad managed to halt their back-to-back league losses by holding the attack-minded Fortuna Sittard to a lifeless goalless draw of 0-0 in the most recent match, and with a playoff spot for the Europa Conference League already secured, it remains only to find out who their opponent will be in the semifinals.

On the opposite end of the pitch stands an AZ Alkmaar side flying high after rekindling their UEFA Champions League qualification hopes by coming from behind to beat Twente 2-1 at the AFAS Stadion last weekend, cutting the gap on the third-placed side by only two points.

Clutching onto hope and offering prayers for a stumble from the Tukkers in the remaining 180 minutes of the Eredivisie 2023-24 season, the Cheese Farmers must strive for perfection, with their fourth straight top-flight triumph appearing within reach, given their track record of emerging victorious against Go Ahead in six consecutive H2H's, including a 5-1 demolition in the reverse fixture back in August.

Even more impressively, Maarten Martens' men cherish fond memories from their recent visits to De Adelaarshorst, having fashioned a four-game winning streak at this venue and netted an impressive 13 goals in the process. Therefore, we are confident that the motivated AZ Alkmaar will once again assert their superiority over the Eagles, who have little left to play for in the remaining two rounds, and get the big three points.

Go Ahead Eagles team news

With no injury or suspension concerns, coach Rene Haque has a full squad to choose from, but with not much to play for in the final 180 minutes of the season, there could be a few rotations.

Jakob Breum and Finn Stokkers got chances early in the second half in a dull 0-0 goalless draw against Fortune Sittard last time out, which is why this duo could hope for a call-up in the starting XI.

AZ Alkmaar

AZ Alkmaar team news

Unlike Sunday's hosts, AZ Alkmaar have several names on the sidelines, including captain Bruno Martins Indi, Mayckel Lahdo, Lequincio Zeefuik, as well as Jordy Clasie who has a groin problem.

Having enjoyed watching his side pull off a comeback 2-1 win over Twente last weekend, boss Maarten Martens should keep his side unchanged, with Vangelis Pavlidis aiming to remain at the top of the top scorers' table.
