PSV Eindhoven vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

Mark Van Bommel’s men stumbled for the first time in the Eredivisie after Utrecht upset the odds to pull off a stunning 3-0 victory last week on the road. Nevertheless, the squad are still breathing down Ajax’s neck for the top spot, and are just three points behind the latter at the moment.

It is also worth mentioning that the hosts are currently sporting the best home record in the cluster with four wins out of five. The last of which, saw them run riot over Venlo with a 4-1 scorecard.

AZ Alkmaar, on the other hand, will be making the trip to Philips Stadion this week on the back of a two-match winless run. Their last clash at home saw them at the losing end of 4-2 scoreline against Heerenveen, while they salvaged no more than a point against Willem II in their previous outing.

The away side have hardly troubled the hosts in their past visits to this stadium as well, and have failed to secure the bragging rights in each of their last ten trips here. As such, it will take nothing short of a miracle for AZ Alkmaar to come out on top in this one.

Furthermore, PSV have been lethal in the final third and have scored three goals or more in four of their last five matches on home soil. Considering that the hosts have also been netting no less than three goals each in their previous two head to head clashes here, expect PSV Eindhoven to breach this foe at least twice by the end of the ninety minutes.
