AZ Alkmaar vs Go Ahead Eagles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 7 August 2022
Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion.
AZ Alkmaar were one of the better-performing teams in the Dutch top flight the last season and they also have the confidence of having won European playoffs. Meanwhile Go Ahead Eagles should consider themselves lucky for having managed to stay above the relegation cut-off the previous season in the table.
In fact, they had a surplus of just 2 points over the relegation line at the end of the campaign. All along they had let in goals in huge numbers and they really have been struggling to show some consistency in their recent fixtures as well.
Most importantly, they have been on a poor run on the road for the past several fixtures and their defensive stats during this stretch have been quite frankly, worrisome.
Meanwhile, Alkmaar are on a winning streak at the moment and are scoring goals at a superb rate. They have also been on a long series of great results in front of their home crowd, and most importantly they have a good head-to-head record against this opponent over the years.
Taking into account these observations, expect a victory for Alkmaar this weekend at their home.
