AZ vs Go Ahead Eagles – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Second from bottom AZ are aiming to kickstart their campaign against Go Ahead Eagles on Sunday. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s game below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Go Ahead Eagles +2 Goals

Go Ahead Eagles gave PSV a real run for their money in an eventual 2-1 defeat in midweek and they will be confident of providing struggling AZ with a similarly tough test in Alkmaar. AZ are languishing in second last place following a dismal run of four defeats in five Eredivisie assignments and only three clubs have conceded more goals so far. With their poor defensive record and form considered, Go Ahead Eagles are worth backing at +2 at favourable odds on Sunday.

Both Teams to Score

Three of AZ’s last four league fixtures produced goals at both ends and we expect the same bet to land when Go Ahead Eagles visit Alkmaar on Sunday. The visitors have notched in four straight league games in the Netherlands, though they have yet to keep a clean sheet on the road. A combination of those factors makes BTTS a stand-out bet for this weekend.

Over 2.5 Goals

AZ are struggling to cope with the loss of so many star players in the summer and with their defence as leaky as it has been in a decade, 100% of their last four Eredivisie tests have passed the over 2.5 goals line. Go Ahead Eagles meanwhile, have conceded seven times in just two away matches since the summer and we should expect more net-shredding action when two porous backlines go head-to-head in Alkmaar.

AZ vs Go Ahead Eagles: Match Preview

AZ team news

Key midfielder Jordy Clasie is still suspended and will miss Sunday’s game, while Ernest Poku isn’t expected to return to the fold until next month. AZ were turned over 3-1 by Twente on Thursday, slipping to their third Eredivisie defeat on the bounce. The drop-off in performances this season has been remarkable and the pressure on Head Coach Pascal Jansen is starting to crank up.

Go Ahead Eagles team news

Go Ahead Eagles will be without three attackers on Sunday, with Jacob Mulenga, Sam Crowther and Frank Ross all out with varying issues. The trio of forwards have played a grand total of zero minutes so far this term however, so their absence might not be so hard felt. Go Ahead have already won twice in the Eredivisie this season, though they have yet to pocket a point on the road.
