AZ Alkmaar vs Vitesse Prediction
AZ Alkmaar’s winning streak in the campaign will back the home team in the clash. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game. With just one loss in their last ten home matches across all major competitions in their schedule, they seem to be in touch at their turf.
Vitesse has been dropping points recently in the campaign. Besides, their winless run at this venue in their h2h meetings with the host also holds them back in the fixture. The visitor has won three of their recent five outings, which suggests a close encounter at AFAS Stadium.
The tip for over 2.5 goals will come in handy as a high-scoring affair is around the corner. Since both teams are likely to get involved in the scoring spree, the BTTS will also be a suitable option. Besides, the draw no bet over AZ will probably be the best bet for the punters.
