Zwolle vs AZ – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Zwolle have lost three Eredivisie fixtures on the spin ahead of their clash with high-flying AZ. 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

After a brief flirtation with the idea of survival, Zwolle’s form has regressed to relegation standard in recent weeks and the Eredivisie’s bottom club have lost four of their last five matches. AZ meanwhile, have claimed 16 points from the last 18 on offer on the road and their knack for producing the goods on their travels means they are worth backing to win again on Sunday.

Both Teams to Score

AZ’s results away from home have been superb since December, though Pascal Jansen’s devotion to attacking football means that clean sheets are rare beasts for Alkmaar. Indeed, despite winning five times and drawing once in their last six away tests, AZ failed to record a single shutout with BTTS landing on each occasion. We think that pattern is worth backing on Sunday and a stake in the same market is recommended at the prices on offer.

Vangelis Pavlidis to Score Anytime

Greek striker Vangelis Pavlidis scored twice in October when AZ beat Zwolle 3-2 in Alkmaar and the 23-year-old is among the prime candidates to notch again in Sunday’s return fixture. Pavlidis also found the net in AZ’s last Eredivisie tussle against Vitesse and the lethal finisher can add to his tally for the campaign against the league’s bottom club this weekend.

Zwolle vs AZ Match Preview and Team News

Zwolle

PEC Zwolle will be without injured quartet, Mustafa Saymak, Dean Huiberts, Samir Lagsir and Sam Kersten, this weekend. The relegation favourites are still just three points from safety, however, a run of four defeats in five matches has really knocked the stuffing out of their confidence as well as their survival prospects.

AZ

Yusuf Barasi and Jelle Duin are two low-profile doubts for AZ this weekend, though the Champions League qualification chasers have a strong pool of players available elsewhere. Alkmaar weren’t involved in any continental competition in midweek and the extra energy in their ranks on Sunday should be noticeable as a result.
