Zwolle vs AZ Alkmaar
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: MAC PARK Stadion.
AZ Alkmaar have opened new 2020/21 Eredivisie campaign with five consecutive draws, which severed them for the title race right of the start. They have managed to bounce back and earn seven victories in the last nine appearances, but the gap between them and Ajax is still big (seven points). The best AZ can do is keep winning and hope for the best.
Premiere game in 2021 is happening on Saturday night at MAC PARK versus PEC Zwolle. Hosts have underperformed slightly in first 14 rounds as well, but managed to return to winning ways on 23rd December against ADO Den Haag. In terms of the odds, AZ are big favorites for the win at 1.65 rate.

Zwolle vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction
Even though AZ Alkmaar had one man sent off in 17th minute, they still managed to come back and win one point versus Zwolle in September 2020. Equalizer was scored by Myron Boadu twenty minutes before the final whistle. Head manager Pascan Jansen was appointed in December after series of bad results and elimination from Europa League group stages.
Roster is full of young rising stars. Besides abovementioned Boadu who bagged 4 goals, attacking trio is made of Karlsson and Stens who scored 9 goals combined. Any of these three players is a solid option for goalscorers market. PEC Zwolle have won only two out of seven home appearances this season, and we don’t believe they will pose a big threat to AZ on Saturday.
