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

AZ -1.0 Goal Handicap

AZ close out their Eredivisie campaign with a winnable looking home meeting with RKC on Sunday and we’re tipping the hosts to sign off in style in Alkmaar. AZ hammered RKC 4-0 in Waalwijk when the teams last met for a February cup clash and Pascal Jansen’s attack-minded troops have the firepower to run up another meaty scoreline against the same opponents this weekend.

Over 2.5 Goals

Eredivisie fixtures involving AZ usually come with a guarantee of goals. 73% of their top flight matches have produced over 2.5 goals this term, including six of their last seven tests in the league. Four goals rattled the net when AZ last met RKC in the KNVB Beker in February and bettors are advised to stick to the over 2.5 totals line at the AFAS Stadion on Sunday.

Vangelis Pavlidis to Score Anytime

Greek striker Vangelis Pavlidis has enjoyed a fine maiden campaign for AZ and the summer signing has scored 16 times in the Eredivisie for his new employers. Pavlidis notched twice against Utrecht on Wednesday evening and the 23-year-old was among the goalscorers when AZ smashed RKC 4-0 in February. Pavlidis’ red-hot form makes him an outstanding option in the anytime goalscorer market again this weekend.

AZ vs RKC Match Preview and Team News


Ron Vlaar is still in the treatment room with a muscle complaint for AZ, while Jordy Clasie is suspended after picking up too many yellow cards. Alkmaar will finish in fifth spot this season having blown their chance of securing fourth after a 2-2 draw at Utrecht on Wednesday evening.


RKC have few injury worries to contend with this week and Head Coach Joseph Oosting has options to choose from in just about every department ahead of Sunday’s game. Shawn Adewoye is suspended and will miss out, however. RKC made it seven points from the last nine on offer with a fine 2-0 win at home to poor travellers Heracles in midweek – a result that confirmed their top-flight status for another year.
