Groningen vs AZ Alkmaar
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 01 October 2022
Kick-off at 17:45 UK / 18:45 CET
Venue: Euroborg.

AZ Alkmaar will be the visitors at Euroborg stadium on Saturday for the Eredivisie clash with home side Groningen.

FC Groningen had to settle for a finish in the bottom-tier of the table. In fact they had managed to register a total of just 9 wins all through the campaign and they had a surplus of just 4 points over the relegation cut-off. All along they had let in goals in huge numbers.

It seems that they have carried this dismal form even into this new campaign. They were winless in 5 of the 7 fixtures played so far in this campaign.

Meanwhile, AZ Alkmaar seems to have picked up things from where they left off in the previous season. They had finished fifth in the league standings the last time.

The team had started off this season with a positive outcome and has impressively maintained it further. They are currently on a 7-game unbeaten streak in the campaign. 5 of those 7 were victories.

By the looks of things, anticipate a victory for the guests on Saturday at Euroborg.
