AZ vs NEC – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

AZ are targeting their sixth straight home win in all competitions when they host NEC on Saturday. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

AZ to Win and Both Teams to Score

For the most part, AZ’s form remains patchy this season, though they are a far more reliable force when they are competing in Alkmaar. AZ have won each of their last five matches at home in all competitions and we expect the hosts to harness the energy from the crowd at the AFAS Stadion again on Saturday. NEC have impacted the scoresheet in each of their last five Eredivisie away assignments however, and a consolation effort looks possible for the visitors.

Over 2.5 Goals

With AZ tipped to win on Saturday without keeping a clean sheet, bettors could also find some joy in backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net in Alkmaar. That was a winning bet in eight of AZ’s last ten league fixtures and in five of NEC’s last seven Dutch top-flight tests. Those records both suggest that excitement is in the offing this weekend, so stick to the high-scoring markets.

Vangelis Pavlidis to Score Anytime

Greek striker Vangelis Pavilidis is starting to find his feet following his summer move to AZ from Willem II and the forward scored three goals in as many games for his club before the international break. The improving 22-year-old will be keen to pick up where he left off against NEC this weekend and Pavlidis is available at an interesting price in the anytime goalscorer stakes as a result.

AZ team news

Jeremy Helmer could be AZ’s only absentee this weekend, so expect to see a similar team to the one that lost 1-0 at Feyenoord before the international break. Alkmaar are still feeling their way into the campaign following the summer exodus, though performances have been improving.

NEC team news

Rens van Eijden, Mathias De Wolf and Mikkel Duelund are all sidelined for NEC this weekend. Rogier Meijer’s charges lost just once in five Eredivisie matches before the domestic campaign paused and NEC will kick off Saturday’s game five places and three points of AZ in the table.
