AZ Alkmaar vs Gil Vicente
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 18 August 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion.

Alkmaar have been one of the very best teams in the Dutch top flight for the past several years and lately they have been on a stupendous streak of performances as well. Meanwhile Gil Vicente have been finding it hard to show consistency lately and they are also letting in goals in huge numbers.

They had finished 5th in the Portuguese top flight the last season but it needs to be mentioned that they had remained winless in 21 of their total 34 fixtures through the campaign.

Going on, they have been struggling with their defense for quite some time now and particularly on the road they have been in a total mess. In fact, seldom have they kept clean sheets away from home in the past several months.

Meanwhile Alkmaar are on a winning streak as of now and particularly in front of their home crowd they have established themselves as a tough nut to crack.

By the looks of things, it is expected that AZ Alkmaar will deliver a winning performance this Thursday at the AFAS Stadion.
