AZ Alkmaar vs Zwolle
Date: Sunday, 30th September 2018
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: AFAS Stadion (Alkmaar).
AZ have started well this season, and they will look to continue their good form when they meet with Zwolle at AFAS Stadion on Sunday afternoon.
Except for their defeat to Heracles earlier this month, AZ have performed superb in their games these season. They street the Eredivisie with a 5-0 win over NAC Breda and followed it up with a 4-1 away win at Emmen. They failed to win the 3 subsequent games featuring goalless draw with Vitesse a loss to Heracles and a hard fought 1-1 draw against PSV.
They now bounced back with 3-1 win against Groningen and a 6-0 away win to Alcides in the midweek cup game. They have been strong and we can’t see Zwolle as a stumbling block to them.
Zwolle have managed 6 points from 6 games so far this season, having lost 4 of the games and won twice. The wins came against bottom placed Groningen and Emmen in their last week game.
They also fought hard to get a 1-0 win in their Cup game in the midweek but that’s not enough put them shoulder to shoulder with their host. It will be a tough game for the visitors playing a free scoring side like AZ at home while they have score below 1 goal average per game and conceded 1.5 average per game.
