Emmen vs AZ Alkmaar
Netherlands Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk.

The 21st round clash with the rock-bottomed Emmen should finally provide Pascal Jansen’s men an opportunity to bounce back.

AZ Alkmaar are finally looking ahead of an easier set of fixtures having played the likes of Ajax (twice), Feyenoord, and Utrecht in the last four matches in all competitions. They’ve lost the last two (to Utrecht and Ajax) without scoring a single goal in the process.

Emmen are by far the worst team in the division and only a miracle could prevent their drop to the Eerste Divisie football next season.

The hosts are the only team in the league without a win in 20 matches. They took only three points in ten league outings on the home patch this term, conceding as many as 30 goals along the way.

The Kannibals have the joint-worst attacking and the join-worst defensive records in the entire competition.

Emmen vs AZ Alkmaar Head-to-head

  • The head to head tradition also suggests a one-way street for the Cheeseheads here.
  • AZ won six and drew two of eight clashes against the Kannibals.
  • AZ won three of the last four encounters with Emmen by at least three goals difference and they haven’t conceded a single goal in the last three meetings with the Kannibals.

Emmen vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

The visitors are hungry for goals having failed to find the back of the net in the last two league matches on the home ground. Pascal Jansen can count on all important first-team players and we have no reasons to expect any other scenario but a comprehensive victory for the visitors here.

The away win is a massive banker at the 1.44 odds. We will, however, search for more value and back the visitors to win to nil at 2.75, or to win by at least two goals difference at the 2.10 odds.

Myron Boadu is AZ’s top scorer with 6 goals in 18 games this term. He should have plenty of room to deliver past the worst back line in the division and we will back him to score anytime at the 1.83 odds.
