Heracles vs AZ Match Preview and Predictions

Heracles vs AZ Alkmaar-Dutch Eredivisie-Predictions-13th April 2018

Heracles vs AZ
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 13 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Polman Stadion (Almelo).

AZ dropped the two goal cushion within five minutes to lose 2-3 to table-toppers PSV last Saturday. They thus gave up the potential second place challenge as Ajax are now as many as eight points above. The Champions League football thus remains only a dream for the Cheeseheads. John van den Brom will definitely have hard times motivating his men for the Friday’s Matchday opener against Heraclieden.

The visitors now have nowhere to go in the remaining four games of the season. Heraclieden are in kind of a similar situation coming into this fixture. The home team fans do have drams about the top-seven finish and the Europa League qualifications. It’s five points away at the moment, but John Stegeman’s side has a nice schedule until the end of the season. An upset here could revoke the spirits at Polman Stadion.

Heracles did lose two on the bounce in Eredivisie, but they offered a super strong resistance in these defeats. They first fell 1-2 to Heerenveen before holding Ajax to only a narrow 1-0 scoreline away at Amsterdam ArenA. If we add the goalless draw at Vitesse beforehand, improvements in team’s defensive efforts are notable.

Heracles vs AZ: Head-to-head

The H2H statistics are actually the biggest issue for Heraclieden ahead of this tie.

AZ were super dominant in the history of clashes with Heracles. The Cheeseheads won 22 and lost only 4 ahead of 30th H2H meetings.

Furthermore, AZ won each of last eight encounters with Heracles bagging five or more goals on three occasions in last four of these wins.

Heracles vs AZ: Prediction

The mentioned H2H statistics is why the bookies pay the away win as low as 1.40. We will try and grab the value backing the hosts not to lose at sky-high 3.00 odds.

Heracles have been much tougher to break down lately and we will alternatively back AZ to score less than two goals in the match at 3.25.
