FC Utrecht vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction
Despite being a game ahead in the schedule, Utrecht is still seven points behind the visitor on the table as it stands. The host enjoys the ground advantage, but a series of winless run in the league suggests that there will not be a huge threat with it in the upcoming clash.
In the meantime, Alkmaar can be a real headache for the home team. With their winning streak and promising form in the campaign, the away team is likely to create more chances in the game. So, we can expect the match to favor the traveling side in ninety minutes.
Since both teams have no problem in scoring goals, we can count on them both to find the back of the net within full-time. So, the tip for BTTS will come in handy from the goals area. Besides, the double chance favoring AZ Alkmaar will probably be the best bet to yield decent returns in safe conditions.
