AZ Alkmaar vs Dundee United Prediction & Match Preview

Europa Conference League Predictions from LeagueLane

AZ Alkmaar vs Dundee United
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 August 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion.

Dundee United might have won the first leg by a narrow margin but it needs to be mentioned that they are not at all in good form lately. Meanwhile AZ Alkmaar have simply been superb in their past several fixtures, and importantly they have been on an inspiring run in front of their home crowd as well.

They had secured a 5th place finish the last season in the Dutch top flight, and as a result they had to take part in the playoffs to secure an entry into the European Conference League. But they managed to win the playoffs and as such they have shown their ability to deal with pressure.

This Thursday, they are in front of their home crowd and need to overturn only a one-goal deficit. Meanwhile Dundee United are going through a poor stretch of performances, and are letting in goals in huge numbers.

On top of that, their form in away games lately have simply been worrisome, and their defence has simply been a non-factor in these fixtures as well.

By the looks of things, expect a victory for AZ Alkmaar this Thursday at their home.
