Vitesse vs AZ Alkmaar Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Vitesse will be looking to extend their winning streak in the Eredivisie to three games when they welcome AZ Alkmaar at the GelreDome on Saturday afternoon. Vitesse managed a comfortable 1-3 victory on the road at Roda JC Kerkrade last weekend thanks to goals from Tim Matavz, Thomas Bruns and Guram Kashia. Meanwhile, AZ Alkmaar won 2-0 at home against ADO Den Haag, with Wout Weghorst and Guus Til getting on the scoresheet for the Cheeseheads. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although Vitesse have won both games in this season, I’m definitely backing AZ Alkmaar to find the back of the net in this one as they have scored at least once in 19 of the last 20 meetings with Vitesse. Furthermore, it should be a high-scoring affair as three of the last six meetings between these two have seen at least three goals scored.

Vitesse Preview

Vitesse kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign in a perfect manner, registering back-to-back wins over NAC Breda and Roda JC Kerkrade. Vitesse have been scoring goals for fun in this early part of the season as they are the division’s top scorers at the moment with seven goals under their belts. Prior to these two victories, the Arnhem club suffered a penalty-shootout defeat at the hands of Feyenoord in the Dutch Super Cup. At home, Vitesse have looked pretty solid over the past few months, having won five of their last six Eredivisie home fixtures. Furthermore, they have won two of the last three home meetings with AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in each of these. In addition, Vitesse didn't lose a single game against AZ Alkmaar last season, as they managed a 2-2 draw at AZ along with two consecutive wins in the Eredivisie and KNVB Beker Cup. Thomas Bruns and Tim Matavz have been Vitesse’s most dangerous players in front of goal in this early part of the season, as they have scored two goals each in two league appearances. Alexander Buttner has also played a vital part in Vitesse’s performances this season, helping the team with two assists.

Vitesse Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Vitesse ahead of this clash.

AZ Alkmaar Preview

Meanwhile, AZ Alkmaar finally picked up their first victory of the new season last weekend as they won 2-0 at home over ADO Den Haag. Actually, they also looked good against PSV Eindhoven in the opening round and even had a one-goal lead, but the hosts managed to fight back from behind to secure a 3-2 win. AZ have enjoyed a strong pre-season campaign, having won seven of their eight friendly fixtures. They currently sit in 9th spot in the standings tied on three points with Excelsior and Ajax. The bad news is that AZ Alkmaar have struggled on the road over the past few months, having lost five of their last seven away games in the Eredivisie, including their 3-2 defeat at PSV Eindhoven in their most recent trip. In addition, AZ have conceded at least two goals in four of their last seven league trips. The good news is that AZ have registered victories in three of their last visits to the GelreDome. Furthermore, AZ have scored at least once in 19 of their last 20 meetings with Vitesse across all competitions. It seems that Wout Weghorst is having another solid campaign, as he has already provided two goals and one assist for AZ in this early part of the season. He was the team’s top scorer last season with 17 goals in 33 league appearances.
