Vitesse vs AZ Alkmaar
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 28 November 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: GelreDome.

Vitesse have been the proponents for hard-fought wins this season in the Dutch top flight, as every single one of their victories in the league have come for a one-goal margin. Once again they will try to grind out a win this Sunday, at their home.

Meanwhile, Alkmaar have been a mess on the road all through this 2021-22 Eredivisie campaign, and they also have a poor h2h record against this foe at this venue in recent years.

Likely, expect a win for the former this Sunday at the GelreDome.

Vitesse vs AZ Alkmaar Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The latest encounter had ended in a 2-1 win for Vitesse.

  • The hosts had scored two or more goals in five of the former seven meetings at this ground.

Vitesse vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction & Analysis

Vitesse had scored two or more goals in four of the past five fixtures, and they have been quite formidable at home in 2021-22. However, they have struggled a bit with defense all along this year – which is evident from the low number of clean sheets they have managed.

On the other hand, Alkmaar have consistently found the back of the net. But their form on the road has been a cause for worry throughout the campaign.

By the looks of things, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch. However, Vitesse do have the upper hand.

Key Stats for Betting

  • Vitesse are placed fifth in the table, and need a surplus of just one point to climb to the top-four of the table.
  • They have a total of one clean sheet at home since April.
  • Meanwhile, Alkmaar are on a three-game winless streak, and they had remained so in 11 of the past 14 road trips.
