AZ Alkmaar vs ADO Den Haag Prediction
Alkmaar recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Ajax. Not only did they record a victory against the all-conquering Ajax, who also happen to be the defending champions, but they managed to pull level in terms of points with the title-holders as well.
In the meantime, Den Haag were held to a goalless draw at home, by Heracles. It was their sixth winless match on the trot, and further increased their deficit with the relegation cut-off.
This weekend, quite easily Alkmaar are the favorites. They had just recorded a win to nil on the road against Ajax of all teams, and are potentially in the process of knocking Ajax off the top. They had won four of their past five league games, and on top of that are at home this weekend.
On the other hand, Den Haag are placed 17th in a table of 18, are six points off the relegation line, have a total of four wins this whole league campaign (two of which had come back in August), and also two of these four victories had come against the dead-last placed Waalwijk.
In addition, Alkmaar had won the reverse fixture, had won nine of the past eleven h2h games, and scored twice or more in 12 of the last 14 such meetings at this venue. Evidently, AZ Alkmaar are about to keep their momentum going with another huge win.
