AZ Alkmaar vs Feyenoord
Date: Sunday, 9 February 2020
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Sparta AFAS Stadion.
Can anyone stop Ajax Amsterdam from defending the throne in Netherlands was one of the main questions before the season started.
AZ Alkmaar have been the most serious contender so far, even managing to beat the champions in head to head clash a couple of months ago. They have slipped in a couple of occasions against weaker opponents though, which pushed them down to the 2nd place three points behind Ajax.
AZ will have to keep winning in order to stay competitive, but this week’s opponent Feyenoord is not going to be an easy task. Hosts are still favorites for the win priced at 1.82.
Feyenoord are once again struggling with inconsistency. The most popular team from Rotterdam is 3rd but far away from the top.
Team which wants to contest the first position has to win more than four out of ten games away from home.
Once again, the team is doing great in terms of offense and efficiency, bagging 41 goals in 21 games. Steven Berghuis is sitting at the top of goalscoring list and should represent the biggest danger for AZ’s defense.
AZ Alkmaar vs Feyenoord: Head-to-head
It is quite shocking to see that last 16 head to head matches between these teams always ended Over 2.5 FT or with both teams scoring.
Feyenoord have huge 28-11 lead when it comes to victories, but being not so successful recently.
AZ Alkmaar vs Feyenoord: Prediction
Don’t forget the fact we are having a lot of injured players on both sides. Gudmundsson and Hatzidiakos won’t be making appearance for hosts, while Kokcu, Haps and Van Beek are sidelined for Feyenoord. AZ are ahead in terms of quality and home crowd support.
Both teams to score and Over 2.5 FT is probably going to be one of the most popular bets across Europe this weekend.
