AZ Alkmaar vs PEC Zwolle
Date: Sunday, 23 February 2020
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: AFAS Stadion, Alkmaar
The title race in Holland Eredivisie is becoming less competitive due to AZ Alkmaar’s crisis and inability to keep up with Ajax’s winning streaks.
Squad from AFAS Stadion has shockingly lost to Twente in the previous round and allowed reigning champions to increase the gap to six points.
Upcoming clash against PEC Zwolle has huge importance, and victory could at least start the healing process after getting eliminated from the national cup too.
AZ are huge favorites for the win here at 1.20 odds.
AZ Alkmaar vs PEC Zwolle Head-to-head
AZ rarely had issues with PEC Zwolle in the recent past, having won six out of last nine h2h while losing none.
The first match of the season was heavily one-sided. AZ conquered Zwolle in December 2019 with 0-3 FT result.
Zwolle scored only once against AZ in the last five duels.
AZ Alkmaar vs PEC Zwolle Prediction
In terms of quality, PEC Zwolle definitely should be positioned much better than the current 16th place.
This squad had so many unfortunate events this season and dropped a lot of points due to hardly explainable errors.
Last weekend for example they had huge 2-0 lead against Feyenoord, but still lost the match.
AZ Alkmaar are entering this clash with not so great fitness because of Thursday night Europa League playoffs action at this stadium against LASK Linz.
They are still having the best defensive numbers in the league though, conceding only 17 goals so far.
We are going to back home team not only to win the match but also to keep another clean sheet. The odds for this bet at the moment are at 2.25.
Zwolle scored only 8 goals in their 12 away games so far.
Two or three goals in the match seems like a good alternative since 12 out of 22 games for AZ have ended like this.
