Feyenoord vs AZ Alkmaar
Date: Sunday, 12th March 2017,
Kick off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Feijenoord.
Feyenoord will be looking to bounce back after a shocking defeat to the rock-bottom Sparta Rotterdam in the last round.
The Eredivisie leaders have thus ended the impressive streak of five consecutive wins to compromise their quest for the silverware.
De Trots van Zuid will take on AZ in what supposed to be a derby match in some better days for the visitors.
Feyenoord are now four points clear at the top of the standings. The manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst can overall be thrilled with the campaign his team has had so far in the season.
The Pride of Rotterdam have especially been impressive at De Kuip where they picked up seven consecutive wins in the domestic competition.
The visitors suffered a real disaster in Europa League conceding as many as 11 goals in two legs with Lyon. John van den Brom’s men have not been any better in Eredivisie where they are miles away from the very top of the table.
AZ barely managed to go past Eerste Divisie outfit Cambuur in KNVB Beker’s semifinal. The win after penalties was their only success in the last six matches in all competitions.
Feyenoord vs AZ: Head to head
The head to head matches between the two sides have usually brought plenty of goals and there is no reason not to believe in such a scenario this Sunday when the teams will play their 43th head to head encounter.
Feyenoord have been much more successful winning 23 games, including the 0-4 win from AFAS Stadion in mid-November last year. Berghuis, van der Heijden, Jorgensen and Vilhena were on target for van Bronckhorst’s men.
Feyenoord vs AZ: Prediction
AZ have been very easy to break down so far in the season. And we can see Feyenoord maintain their tremendous goalscoring form on the home pitch.
Nicolai Jorgensen has been enjoying a terrific season netting 15 goals so far in the competition and he is certainly worth taking as the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 4/6.
