With just a single goal separating the teams in the second leg, Sunday’s playoff clash between AZ and Vitesse promises to be a keenly contested tussle. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

AZ to Win

AZ were a little unfortunate to lose Thursday’s playoff final first leg at Vitesse, having created more opportunities to score than their hosts, though Alkmaar have the quality to overturn the deficit on Sunday. AZ have won 12 of their last 17 Eredivisie assignments at the AFAS Stadion and they beat Vitesse 3-1 at that venue as recently as April 2nd. Expect a similar outcome in Sunday’s decider.

Both Teams to Score

Regular BTTS bettors will be fully familiar about AZ’s reliability in the market and both teams to score landed in Thursday’s playoff final first-leg between Alkmaar and Vitesse. That was the tenth time in 11 Eredivisie fixtures involving AZ where both teams managed to impact the scoresheet and we’re tipping Sunday’s crucial contest to develop along similar lines.

Vangelis Pavlidis to Score Anytime

With seven goals in his last ten appearances, AZ striker Vangelis Pavlidis is enjoying a strong end to what has been a superb maiden campaign with the club. The Greek poacher was among the goalscorers when Alkmaar cruised to a 3-1 victory over Vitesse at the AFAS Stadion in April and the 23-year-old has the skills to make another match-defining impact on Sunday.

AZ vs Vitesse Match Preview and Team News

AZ

Ron Vlaar is still in the treatment room with a muscle complaint for AZ, while Yusuf Barasi is also considered doubtful. Alkmaar overturned a 3-2 first-leg deficit in the closing fixture of their semi-final clash with Heerenveen last week and they will need to launch another comeback against Vitesse on Sunday to ensure they land  a place in next season’s Europa League.

Vitesse

Jacob Rasmussen and Maximilian Wittek are both out injured this weekend, while there are also doubts about the fitness levels of Gnantin Yann Gboho and Alois Dominik Oroz. Adrian Grbic and Eli Dasa are also unavailable for Sunday. Nikolai Baden Frederiksen should be available again following his one-match ban, however.
