Go Ahead Eagles vs AZ Alkmaar Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Go Ahead Eagles will be looking to put their Eredivisie campaign back on track when they welcome AZ Alkmaar at the De Adelaarshorst on Friday night. Go Ahead Eagles managed a hard-fought 1-1 draw on the road at FC Groningen last time out, with Jarchinio Antonia scoring the equaliser for Hans de Koning’s men. On the other hand, AZ Alkmaar picked up a 1-2 win on the road against FC Twente last time out, thanks to an excellent strike from Wout Weghorst and a stoppage time own goal from Twente’s defender Peet Bijen. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Go Ahead Eagles Preview

Go Ahead Eagles has enjoyed a disappointing first-half of the season, as they only managed three victories from their 17 league fixtures. The Eagles come into this clash on the back of a five-game winless streak in the Eredivisie since an unexpected 1-0 home win over Feyenoord in the beginning of November 2016. They are rock bottom of the Eredivisie table with just 12 points under their belts after 17 rounds, already four points behind safety. Scoring goals has been Go Ahead Eagles’ biggest problem throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they only managed to score 14 goals in 17 rounds so far. Jarchinio Antonia, Sander Kuits and Sam Hendriks have been the Eagles’ most prolific players in front of goal so far this season, scoring three goals each. Their recent home form has also been a problem, as G.A. Eagles have lost four of their last five home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, the Eagles picked up two victories in their last three home meetings with AZ in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in two of these. Head-to-head, Go Ahead Eagles are winless in the last three meetings with AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie since a 2-1 home win back in February 2014.

AZ Alkmaar Preview

On the contrary, AZ Alkmaar find themselves in a great run of form at the moment, losing just once in their last 14 games across all competitions. AZ suffered a heavy 0-4 home defeat at the hands of Feyenoord in the middle of December, but they bounced back with with two consecutive wins over ASWH in the KNVB Beker Cup and against FC Twente in their most recent Eredivisie fixture. AZ currently stand in 5th spot in the Eredivisie table with 28 points to their name after 17 rounds, just one point off the 4th-placed SC Heerenveen. AZ proved to be a tough nut to crack on the road over the past two months, winning four and drawing four of their last eight away fixtures in all competitions. They looked very solid at the back on the road during this run, conceding just seven goals in the process. Furthermore, Alkmaar picked up a 0-2 win in their most recent visit to the De Adelaarshorst. Wout Weghorst and Robert Muhren have bagged 15 goals between them, while Alireza Jahanbakhsh helped the team with 4 goals and 4 assists in his 14 league appearances.

Go Ahead Eagles Team News

Sinan Bytyqi, Randy Wolters, Marcel Ritzmaier, Kevin Brands, Jarchinio Antonia, Chris Gurkan David and Tom Daemen are all doubts, but Jerry Van Ewijk is back in training following his ankle injury.

AZ Alkmaar Team News

Gino Coutinho is out with an elbow injury, while Ron Vlaar is a doubt. The good news is that Ridgeciano Haps is back in training following his knee injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

AZ Alkmaar looked very solid on the road over the past two months, and they should have no problem in picking up all three points in this match, as Go Ahead Eagles are the worst team in the Eredivisie at the moment in time. I’m also backing AZ to score a couple of goals in this one, as they managed to score at least two goals in their last two away fixtures in the Eredivisie.
