AZ Alkmaar vs Heerenveen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 28th October 2018
Kick-off at 15.45 UK/ 16.45 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion, Alkmaar.
The Eredivisie has really displayed fierce competition this season. After two months of proceedings, teams are separated by very thin margins and every weekend is just a battle for supremacy and survival. It’s been too much fun following the Dutch League lately.
Alkmaar is in the top half of the table, in the European spots with 12 points. While Heerenveen is in the bottom tier, in the twelfth spot of a league of 18 teams, with 10 points. Just a minor two-point difference, but a huge separation between them in the table.
The competition for the Europa League playoff spots is in full swing and there’s really not an inch to give for any of the four teams stranded together with 12 points. Any sign of weakness and teams will pounce upon them for blood.

The home team has a lot at stake for this match. Their performance in this match will probably decide if they remain a mid-table team or a top-tier one. Expect Alkmaar to finish off this match in a hurry with no scope for a mess-up.
SC Heerenveen will probably be pushed further downwards in the table and their goal difference will suffer too. The home team will be targeting both the three points as well as a surge in their goal tally.
Expect a perfect match from the hosts. They will put all their energy behind scoring an early goal to ease off the pressure, and then will try to consolidate the match.
