Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur Prediction & Match Preview

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur
Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: Monday, 4 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: AFAS Trainingscomplex (Wijdewormer).

Cambuur will have a great chance to keep the fine four-game unbeaten run on Monday evening when they travel to Wijdewormer to take on last-placed AZ Reserves in the last game of 23rd round in Dutch Eerste Divisie.

The Yellow Blues showed decent defensive displays in back-to-back league outings. They saw off Helmond 0-1 on the road before playing a 1-1 draw to 3rd-placed Go Ahead Eagles last Friday in front of the home crowd. They broke into the top-nine in the league ladder and they will no doubts be highly motivated to keep collecting points and secure the promotional play-offs at the end of the season (2nd to 9th place lead to play-offs).

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur: Head-to-head

Jong AZ have never been a tricky opposition to Cambuur.

The Yellow-Blues won each of three H2H meetings with AZ Reserves.

The streak includes a 2-1 victory in this term of Eerste Divisie in late-August at Cambuur Stadion.

Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur: Prediction

AZ Reserves are just not pulling up any trees in this season. They took only 13 points from 22 league rounds so far which is only enough for the last place in the standings. The team led by Michel Vonk suffered a real disaster last Friday when they conceded six goals in a devastating away loss against Roda.

The hosts lost nine, drew one and won one of past eleven league matches. We just can’t see them hurting play-offs hopefuls and in-form Cambuur side here at all. The away win really looks like a banker and one of top bets of the entire weekend in our opinion.

On top of the mentioned form, Cambuur completely dominated H2H games winning each of three clashes against Jong AZ. The hosts have the weakest defensive record in the entore league with 49 goals conceded in 22 matches which is why we will alternatively back the Yellow-Blues to notch two or more goals on the evening at 1.66.
