Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Volendam
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Monday, 4 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: AFAS Trainingscomplex, Wijdewormer.
Volendam have connected a five-game unbeaten streak since late January and they now look to catch up with the top 9, sitting five points behind Ajax II with a game in hand as they take on a trip to Wijdewormer for their Matchday 27 clash at Jong AZ Alkmaar.
Palingboeren have beaten Ajax II and Helmond Sport along the way and held Sparta Rotterdam, Den Bosch, and RKC Waalwijk in their last five outings, which should have Hans de Koning’s men very motivated to impress on Monday evening too.
Jong AZ Alkmaar have struggled to cope and now sit just six points clear of Eerste Divisie rock-bottom, already losing the race for the top 9 spots midway through the campaign. They’ve struggled for consistency but still come into the match on the back of a 1-3 win over Helmond Sport and a goalless draw against Den Bosch. They will now hope they can build on the positives and shut down the confident visitors, despite struggles to turn clashes their way at this ground.
