AZ Alkmaar vs VVV-Venlo Prediction
AZ Alkmaar extended their unbeaten streak to six matches in a running after they managed to hold Partizan to a 2-2 draw in their most recent matchup. Despite trailing by two goals for the majority part of that game, two quick replies in the final five minutes of the second half saw AZ Alkmaar salvage a point at the last blast of the whistle.
The hosts, however, have been recording back to back wins in their past four games in the Eredivisie, and are currently sitting second on the ladder, six points behind Ajax.
On the other hand, VVV-Venlo, are way below them at the moment. The visitors tasted success for the first time in eight games after they edged past Twente at home last week with a narrow 2-1 scorecard. Be that as it may, the away side are still dwelling in the dreaded relegation zone.
To make matters worse, the guests have been at the losing end in each of their previous six outings, the most recent of which was at the hands of Heracles by a whopping 6-1 scoreline. With AZ Alkmaar picking up a win by a two-goal margin or more in three of their last five meetings with this foe, it is certainly well within reason to expect VVV-Venlo to be in for another humiliating defeat this week.
Furthermore, the hosts have found the back of the net sixteen times from their past five clashes in all competitions. Taking into account that there has been no dearth of goals in their last two h2h meetings on the trot either, count on over 3.5 goals on the charts in this one without fail.
