Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Willem II
Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: 6 March 2023, Monday
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: AFAS Trainingscomplex (Wijdewormer).

Jong AZ Alkmaar will be hoping to continue their fine form in Wijdewormer on Monday evening when they host top-half rivals Willem II at AFAS Trainingcomplex.

The hosts have lost just two games in their own backyard since the beginning of the season and we can hardly understand why the bookies consider them such big underdogs ahead of this tie.

Jong AZ Alkmaar do lack defensive meticulousness as they have been easy to break down since the start of the campaign but they are at the same time capable of producing loads in the final third against any rival in the league.

The team led b Belgian manager Maarten Martens notched at least three goals in three of the previous four league games.

The run involves a 3-3 stalemate away at Jong PSV seven days ago. Jong AZ Alkmaar currently hold the seventh position in the Eerste Divisie ladder and are just four points shy of Willem II in fourth.

The visitors will enter the tie on the back of four wins and a draw in the previous five games in the league but it is worth noting that they have played four of these five outings in front of the home fans in Tilburg.

Away from home, Willem II have claimed just one point in the previous three league affairs, a streak that includes a 3-1 defeat at Jong PSV in late-January.

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Willem II Head-to-head

  • This will only be the second head to head encounter between Jong AZ Alkmaar and Willem II.
  • Willem II celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory in the return outing in the first part of the season back in September last year.

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Willem II Prediction

Willem II are eleven points shy of second-placed Heracles, meaning the automatic promotion will be very hard to get. Knowing they have just managed one point in the last three league games on the road, we don’t see enough merit in backing Willem II as such favorites.

Instead, the value is with Jong AZ Alkmaar who are well worth backing at the attractive 4.20 odds. Obviously, we are very much interested in the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.70 odds knowing about Jong AZ’s recent performances.

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Willem II Betting Tips
