ADO Den Haag vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions & Match Preview

ADO Den Haag vs AZ Alkmaar
Date: Sunday, 11 November 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).

Two struggling teams will face each other in the Eredivisie on Sunday at The Hague.

Den Haag are 12th in the table with 3 wins and 5 defeats from their 11 league games. At present they are winless in 4 straight games and has lost 3 of them. In their 5 home matches, they have 2 wins and losses each and 3 matches had a final scoreline of over 2.5 goals.

The biggest embarrassment of the season for the Storks was a 7-0 defeat against PSV in front of their home fans. They came back after that loss with a win against Groningen who is at the bottom of the table.

They have not faced stronger opponents other than PSV at home and even lost to relegation placed team FC Emmen. Alfons Groenendijk and his men will have to make sure this match won’t have the same fate as the PSV game.

AZ is back on winning ways after a 3 game losing streak in the league. Over 2.5 goals came in 6 of the last 8 games they played in all competitions, in which they won 4 and lost 3 too.

At the moment they are on a 2 game losing streak in away fixtures. Last 6 away matches had a score of above 2.5 goals in total. With a total of 4 wins and 4 losses, they are 6th in the table.

John van den Brom has to make sure his team does not concede goals like they have done all season. The club from Alkmaar has scored a total of 21 goals and conceded 18 in return.

So with both the teams conceding goals in excess, we can expect a high scoring match this Sunday.

  • In 3 of those matches, a score of over 2.5 goals was produced.
  • The last game Den Haag won was in 2015.

ADO Den Haag vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

AZ has never lost away to a team that is below them in the table. In the 3 matches they lost on the road the opponents were Ajax, Utrecht, and Heracles who all are at the top 5 of the table. So they had a tough away fixture so far and they will be favorites against Den Haag. The Storks are not equipped with any strategy to beat AZ at their own home soil, which is clear from the 4 away wins in h2h matches. So we can bet on Alkmaar to win with 1.81 odd.

In all away games that AZ played this season in all competitions, the final score had over 2.5 goals. Also, 4 of the last 5 h2h at this same venue saw the same trend. With the hosts conceding 11 goals in their 5 home matches and the visitors scoring 10 in their 5 games on the road, we can expect a score of over 2.5 goals in this game and place a bet on the same with 1.50 odd.
