AZ Alkmaar vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes. All their h2h meetings across all major competitions since 2018 have seen the teams combining to score at least three goals in each. Their last h2h clash alone produced 8 goals by full-time which ended in a draw. So, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably serve the purpose for the goals department in the fixture.
Furthermore, the host is the favorite to win the clash. AZ has lost only once to Rotterdam since 1998 and that too was on the road. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle along with their winning streak in the campaign. So, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter.
