AZ continues to run down on their opponents in the league as of late. They are on a six-game unbeaten run in the campaign, following a 1-3 win on the road against PSV Eindhoven last time out. The host had two draws in that unbeaten streak, but both were on the road.
Den Haag is at the edge of the relegation zone in the league table this season. The visitor has lost three of their last five matches in the schedule, picking up just 10 points overall from 16 attempts. They will visit after suffering a 1-4 loss at home against Venlo in the previous encounter.

AZ Alkmaar vs ADO Den Haag Prediction
The last time these two sides met, the match ended in a draw. It was their first draw since 2013, which was 14 games ago in their overall h2h fixture.
During the last encounter in which Alkmaar hosted Den Haag, they had scored 4 goals in ninety minutes. And also, the h2h clash just before that at home also saw over 4 goals within full-time.
This suggests we can expect a high-scoring affair at AFAS Stadium. Hence, the tip for over 3.5 goals at 1.80 odds is likely to yield decent returns for the punters.
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a home win in full-time. But the odds are low for the tip to get any returns out of it. The bookies have been kind enough to put 1.40 odds over AZ to win with a -1 handicap in the encounter, which is probably a suitable bet in the clash.
