Alkmaar is undefeated in their last 5 games. Furthermore, they have won 7 home games in their last 8 fixtures in which they are undefeated.
On the other side of things, the visitors will go into the fixture off the back of 2 consecutive losses and with their struggles against stronger opponents on the road, they are unlikely to take anything from this fixture.
The away side has scored in 5 of their last 6 games on the road and both away fixtures of this competition. Moreover, they are unlikely to remain goalless in a game of such crucial importance.
