NAC Breda vs AZ Alkmaar
Date: Friday, 8 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Rat Verlegh Stadion (Breda).
AZ will have a fantastic opportunity to keep their excellent spell of form going on Friday evening when they travel to Rat Verlegh Stadion to battle out-of-form NAC Breda in the first fixture of 21st round.
The Cheeseheads are flying high and they will come into the match off the back of four successive wins in all competitions. The run is even more impressive if we know they scored 12 goals without conceding a single along the way.
Their latest victims were Emmen who left AFAS Stadion with five goals in their net on Saturday. The head coach John van den Brom has a strong firepower on display in the final third, led by youngsters Oussama Idrissi and Calvin Stengs who were on the scoreline frequently in recent matches. They will have plenty of space to deliver on Friday given the opposition comes in the likes of the rock-bottomed NAC Breda who shipped 44 goals in 20 outings in this term of Eredivisie.
NAC Breda vs AZ Alkmaar Head-to-head
The head to head stats also speak entirely in Alkmaar’s favour.
The visitors won each of last six meetings with NAC Breda netting as many as 13 goals in last four H2H encounters.
AZ claimed a demolishing 5-0 victory when these two outfits took on each other in the first part of the season in mid-August last year.
NAC Breda vs AZ Alkmaar: Prediction
The hosts began the New Year in a dreadful manner in spite of having a rather easier schedule. They claimed only one point from three league ties. It’s a bitterly disappointing return if we know they played the likes of Willem II, ADO Den Haag and De Graafschap. Mitchell van der Gaag’s troops suffered a real disaster against fellow strugglers De Graafschap losing 3-0 last weekend at Stadion de Vijverberg.
It is really hard to expect the hosts to rebound from such a painful loss here against such an in-form opposition. The away win is a huge banker and we will take all day long at 1.50 odds. You can also feel free to back AZ Alkmaar to keep their net untouched in fifth straight league game at the odds of 2.50.
