A resurgent AZ travel north to take on Groningen in the Eredivisie. 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

After a desperately disappointing start to their campaign, AZ have started to find their feet of late and their 1-0 win at CFR Cluj in the Europa Conference League on Thursday was their fifth victory on the spin in all competitions. Groningen meanwhile, are without a victory in eight attempts in the Eredivisie and that dismal record means they are worth opposing this weekend.

Both Teams to Score

Results are on the up, though defensive issues remain for AZ who have kept just one clean sheet in eight Eredivisie fixtures this term. It’s worth noting however, that both teams got in on the act in four of their five away assignments this season, and the same market appeals when AZ visit a Groningen outfit that swapped goals with their opponents in five of their last seven matches.

Over 2.5 Goals

AZ are usually superb value in the entertainment stakes and games involving Pascal Jansen’s side rarely fail to deliver thrills and spills. In fact, 100% of their last seven fixtures in the Eredivisie produced over 2.5 goals, indeed, the same fixtures averaged a weighty 4.42 goals per 90 minutes. We consider that a pattern worth backing and with more action expected on Sunday, we recommend backing under 2.5 goals to hit the net again.

Groningen vs AZ: Match Preview

Groningen team news

Radinio Balker and Mike Te Wierik are both considered doubtful ahead of Sunday’s game, though that is the extent of Groningen’s injury worries. Daniel van Kaam is available again following his suspension. The Pride of the North are hovering just two places above bottom spot after a frustrating start to the season and just one win from their opening nine matches.

AZ team news

AZ have few personnel issues to contend with and Ernest Poku is the only player that’s considered doubtful for Sunday’s game. After a really wobbly start, Alkmaar have hit their stride in recent weeks and they are targeting their sixth straight victory in all competitions this weekend. New signing Vangelis Pavlidis scored just his second goal of the season in AZ’s 5-1 win over Utrecht last week and the Greek striker will hope to kick on as a result.
