Jong AZ Alkmaar vs FC Dordrecht
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 18th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: AFAS Trainingscomplex (Wijdewormer).
There will be no relegation this season in the Eerste Divisie, and expectedly it has led to the teams being unmotivated to perform at their best. Here, we have the two bottom-most teams in the league table going against each other in search for three points.
The reserve team of AZ Alkmaar won their last game, a rare occurrence for the team and its fans. Despite being on the road, they defeated Jong Utrecht, another reserve team of a top-class club. The final score was 1-3 in favor of the visitors. Though nothing is written in stone yet, this could be the start of a revival.
The Sheep Heads had the misfortune of facing the current best team in the league, and as expected the team faced a huge loss – 2-6, in favor of Den Bosch, the visitors.

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs FC Dordrecht Prediction
After their win in the last game, the team from Alkmaar will be high in spirits. They would like to thank their lucky stars that the schedule allotted them the weakest team in the competition, with added home advantage, right after they secured a tough win.
The hosts would play out their heart to get the win here. A win would most probably help them jump at least two spots higher.
The Sheep Heads are the worst team in the Eerste Divisie as stats would say. They have failed to win a single game on the road, and the league is already past its halfway mark. They will have to face a team, high on morale, and it will likely end in a loss for the guests. Also, 100% of their h2h matches at this venue ended in losses.
Both these teams have conceded a total of 85 goals in their 20 league matches each. They are right down at the bottom in the case of conceded goals. It would be no wonder if these two teams with such leaky defenses would churn out a game with at least two first-half goals.
