Go Ahead Eagles vs AZ Alkmaar: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips-13th January 2017

Go Ahead Eagles vs AZ Alkmaar
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 13th January 2017,
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET,
Venue: De Adelaarshorst (Deventer).

The Go Ahead Eagles are one of bookie’s favourites to go down to the second division this season. The first half of the campaign justified their judgement as they went into the Christmas break sitting at the rock bottom of the league table. The Eagles have just 3 wins to their name so far this season. While they suffered 11 defeats from 17 league matches so far, higher than any other team in the Eredivisie. If they are able to restrict the rate at which they lose games, they might well ensure their stay in the league beyond the 2016/17 season.

AZ Alkmaar are fifth in the Eredivisie table and were one of the most entertaining teams in the first half of the season. They were rather adventurous than effective, as they are a team that can score at will and at the same time unable to guard their defense. The 17 matches they were involved produced a total of 52 goals, an average of just above 3 goals per game. They scored 29 of those, while conceding 23. The league position could have been slightly better, if they sort out the problems in their defense.

Go Ahead Eagles vs AZ Alkmaar: Prediction

AZ are the settled side amongst the two and have won in 3 of the last five meetings against the Eagles. While, the hosts for Friday’s match are under some serious pressure due to their position at the foot of the league table. The match is there for AZ to win. And looking at the goal scoring form of both teams we are likely to see over 2.5 goals at the end of 90 minutes.
