AZ put their ten-match unbeaten run on the line when they travel to take on Go Ahead Eagles in the Eredivisie. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
- Match Result – AZ to Win @ 1/2 (1.5)
- Team Goals – Over 1.5 AZ Team Goals @ 8/15 (1.53)
- Anytime Goalscorer – Jesper Karlsson @ 6/4 (2.5)
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
AZ to Win
AZ have been remarkably consistent over the past few months and their 2-1 triumph at PSV in their last Eredivisie outing highlighted the brimming confidence in their ranks. Alkmaar haven’t tasted defeat in ten straight league fixtures overall and having thumped Go Ahead 5-0 in the reverse fixture between the clubs, another three points should be attainable for Pascal Jansen’s charges on Sunday.
Over 1.5 AZ Team Goals
Alkmaar rattled five goals without reply past a hapless Go Ahead Eagles outfit when the teams last met back in September and in-form AZ could enjoy another fruitful game against the same opponents on Sunday. AZ have notched at least twice in six of their last eight league matches, and a stake on them in the over 1.5 team goals market could return dividends again.
Jesper Karlsson to Score Anytime
Swedish attacker Jesper Karlsson scored two of AZ’s goals in their rout of Go Ahead Eagles last year and the 23-year-old could be one to watch in the anytime goalscorer market again this weekend. Karlsson has found the net twice in as many games for Alkmaar and with his touch in front of goal looking clinical, he is a prime candidate to register again.
Go Ahead Eagles vs AZ: Match Preview and Team News
Go Ahead Eagles
Go Ahead Eagles booked their place in the semi finals of the KNVB Beker thanks to a 2-0 victory at NEC in midweek, though things haven’t been going quite so well in the Eredivisie. Kees van Wonderen’s side have drawn two and lost five of their last seven assignments in the Dutch top flight and relegation fears are starting to heighten. One sliver of positivity is that Go Ahead have few injury worries to contend with this weekend.
Greek defender Pantelis Chatzidiakos will sit out Sunday’s game through suspension for AZ having accumulated five bookings, though absentees are few and far between for the club elsewhere. Alkmaar enjoyed a resounding 4-0 win at RKC in the cup in midweek and they should be considered a dark horse to land silverware in that competition. In the Eredivisie, a top three finish remains the target.
