AZ Alkmaar vs Emmen
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: AFAS Stadion, Alkmaar.
The last match of round number nine in Dutch Eredivisie is taking place at AFAS Stadion where AZ Alkmaar welcomes Emmen. Hosts have been labelled as a massive favorite to take all three points here at 1.25 odds, despite the fact they had very slow start to the new football campaign. This team had five consecutive draws in the top flight, finally managing to break that cycle with two victories before the international break.
Their opponents are currently sitting in the last place on the table with three back to back losses behind them. Emmen conceded 13 goals in the last five outings, so expectations from this clash are probably at very low level.

AZ Alkmaar vs Emmen Prediction
Recent victories against RKC Waalwijk and Heerenveen have helped AZ to climb to the 8th place, being ten points behind Ajax Amsterdam. They were serious title contender in the last season which was suddenly interrupted due to global pandemic.
Interestingly, only this team and Feyenoord are still undefeated in Eredivisie. AZ’s defense though has to step up and do their job properly. They managed to keep only two clean sheets so far.
Jesper Karlsson is in a good shape lately, and we would definitely pick him for the goalscorers market on Sunday.
Emmen are on a negative run of three straight losses to Heerenveen, Feyenoord and Vitesse. They have been consistent when it comes to scoring, bagging six goals in last five appearances.
We don’t expect them to go down against AZ without firing one single bullet.
