Roda vs Jong AZ Prediction and Analysis
The Miners have been pretty clinical against teams outside the top 5 in the table this season, as just 1 of their 4 losses have come against teams outside the top 5 teams in the league.
The club should push for wins in both fixtures against the team, which would put them level on points with 3rd place, De Graafschap as they have a game or 2 in hand over sides above them in the league.
The AZ reserves team on the other hand started off the season with 3 consecutive wins but since then have struggled to gain any points, winning just a couple of games. They have further managed a point through a draw. They currently have 19 points from 14 games.
While the hosts have been doing well for themselves in home games with just a loss in their last 5, the visitors have had an embarrassing run of games on the road as they are on a 4 match losing streak in away games. Hence I have backed a dominating win for the hosts.
The visitors have failed to score in their last 3 away matches while the home team has kept the sheets clean in 3 of their last 5 games at home. It is unlikely AZ II will find the back of the net this Friday.
