Willem II vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction
Adrie Koster’s men have been hit by a sharp decline in form which has seen them secure no more than three points from a maximum twelve. The hosts have been inconsistent, to say the least, and have picked up the win in just half of their last eight matchups.
Despite showing signs of a resurgence with a 1-0 win over Venlo in their previous clash at home, Willem II failed to pull off a similar result in their most recent trip on the road which saw them admit defeat by a 2-0 scorecard.
AZ Alkmaar are on a much better run of form at the moment. The visitors picked a point off the Red Devils in their last European clash and are currently boasting an impressive six-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been recording back to back victories in their past two outings, the last of which was a 3-0 win over Feyenoord.
Taking into account that Alkmaar have also been at the losing end just once in their previous five visits here, Willem II’s chances of salvaging even a point are definitely looking bleak.
Additionally, the hosts have not been a threat in the final third and have lost without finding the back of the net in half of their last four games on home soil. Considering that the visitors have won with a clean sheet intact in three of their previous outings in the Eredivisie, AZ Alkmaar are the safest choice to break the deadlock in this one.
