ADO Den Haag vs AZ Alkmaar
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 22 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:45 UK / 16:45 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).
Despite showing signs of resurgence with back to back wins in the league, Ado Den Haag slumped to what was their fourth defeat of the campaign last week, with Feyenoord edging it past the hosts with a 3-2 scoreline. The squad managed no more than three shots on target in that clash as opposed to their foes who finished the game with thrice that number.
AZ Alkmaar have been faring a lot better in comparison and have so far tasted defeat just once from their last five games. The visitors made light work of Sparta Rotterdam with a whopping 5-1 victory in their last fixture at home, prior to which Vitesse got the better of them with a narrow 2-1 scorecard on the road.
With Den Haag sporting just one win at home, AZ Alkmaar will be optimistic of walking away with all three points in this one.

ADO Den Haag vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction
Home advantage has not been favoring Den Haag in their clashes. The hosts were at the losing end in two of their last three games here and have found the back of the net just four times while been at the receiving end of six.
Additionally, the visitors have been showing promise in their outings and have already tasted success in one of them. It is also worth mentioning that Alkmaar have been doing well in their previous visits to this venue and have secured the bragging rights in their last five trips here.
Taking into account that Den Haag will be coming into the clash this weekend on the back of a defeat in their most recent matchup as well, AZ Alkmaar are the odds on favorites to pick up the win.
All three away goals that the guests have scored in the new campaign have come in the opening forty-five minutes of the game. Considering that three of their last five head to head clashes here have also seen Den Haag concede in the first half, count on Alkmaar to breach their foes before the break.
