PEC Zwolle vs AZ Alkmaar: Prediction
Zwolle are, as expected, playing their part of a relegation contender. Ten losses so far, mixed up with occasional win here and there placed them at 15th place, a point above endangered VVV Venlo.
Playing at home, Zwolle are a mixed bag. With a 3-1-3 W-D-L record and null goal difference (17-17), only thing we can expect for sure are goals. Last game at Mac3Park Stadion was their 3-1 win over fellow relegation struggler, Fortuna.
AZ have some rust to shake off following international break. Narrow 1-nil win against Venlo and miraculous 2-2 draw v Partizan in Europe League aren’t something their fans are used to seeing. Slot’s men remain six points behind Ajax in second and they’re up and running for the title chase.
On the road, AZ have been brilliant. Fifteen goals scored, only three conceded with sixteen points won from seven games. In the league, Cheeseheads haven’t lost an away game since September 1st.
Van Duinen is back in training for Zwolle but is unlikely to feature. Reijnen is out till the end of December while Paal, van Polen and Saymak are still questionable.
Pantelis Chatzidiakos suffered a serious injury v Venlo and that’s season over for him. Ron Vlaar is a long term absentee for AZ.
Over 2.5 goals is my safe pick for this one. Not a single PEC home game this season ended up with fewer than 4 goals scored. AZ’s away form just reinforces this bet. Though you can easily go for more, 3.5, 4.5…
I’d back Myrone Boadu to score, as he found back of the net four times in four away games.
