Heracles vs AZ Alkmaar
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-Off at 15.45 UK
Venue: Stadion Erve Asito, Almelo.

After starting the new Eredivisie season with five consecutive draws, team AZ Alkmaar are on a good recovery path. They are on a red-hot streak at the moment after winning three games in a row against RKC Waalwijk, Heerenveen and Emmen, while also keeping three clean sheets.

Can AZ make it four in a row this Sunday on a rough away days against Heracles? Hosts are also hoping to end the negative run of two straight losses to VVV and Ajax, so we are going to see two very motivated sides. In terms of the odds, visitors are favorites priced at 1.70.

Heracles’ fans are surely feeling depressed after taking a look at stats for previous games against AZ Alkmaar. Their team was defeated in 25 occasions out of total 33 games, while winning only five encounters.

Heracles managed to beat AZ at this venue in 2018 season though 3-2 FT.

Squad from Alkmaar managed to score at least two goals against Heracles in the last 12 head to head duels.

Heracles vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

Once again, Heracles’ biggest weakness is how to collect points on the road. This squad ventured into five away trips so far, losing four and collecting only one point. Their goal difference of 3-16 says pretty much everything. Situation is much better when it comes to home performances though – two victories, one draw, one loss with solid 7-3 goal difference.

We find this squad to be very unpredictable. One week you see them beat Utrecht here, then lose to RKC Waalwijk, one of the weakest teams. AZ Alkmaar have picked up nice rhythm, making big progress towards the top. We don’t think they are going to stop here. Away win is going to be one of the most popular bets on Sunday afternoon.
