Almere City FC - AZ

Netherlands Eredivisie - Yanmar Stadion

AZ Alkmaar are still sitting pretty in third spot, however, zero wins since the beginning of December has certainly got their fans worried. Their opponents on the other hand, Almere City, have lost just once in their past five league meetings and that single defeat was at the hands of PSV Eindhoven.

Hot tip – Vangelis Pavlidis to score anytime

  • Vangelis Pavlidis scored a brace the last time these two sides met
  • The Greek striker has seven goals in his last nine Eredivisie games

It's been a star-studded season for Pavlidis with 20 goals in 20 Eredivisie matches, so is by far and away the most feared striker in the Netherlands. The tall striker is averaging a league goal every 88 minutes so is odds-on to find the back of the net this weekend.

Win probability

Home: 19/5 (4.8) – 20.8%

Draw: 3/1 (4.0) – 25%

Away: 8/13 (1.62) – 61.9%

While AZ Alkmaar are overwhelming favourites in this clash, you could go one better and back them to be winning at both half-time and full-time with very attractive odds of 31/20 (2.55 – 39.2%) especially given the gap between the two sides in the league.

However, you may well believe there's an upset on the cards given the run of form both of these sides are on. Therefore, backing Almere City to win and Both Teams to Score can be found with odds of 7/1 (8.0) although the probability figure suggests this is a long shot with just a 12.7% chance of landing.

Almere City vs AZ Almaar prediction

Almere City vs AZ Alkmaar team news

Almere City

Despite having never beaten AZ Alkmaar in their history, this could be Almere City's best opportunity to do so. The home side have only lost once in the league since AZ Alkmaar beat them 4-1 at the start of December and are in a rich vein of form.

Predicted lineup: Bakker – Van Bruggen, Barbet, Jacobs – Cathline, Pena, Resink, Koopmeiners, Ritmeester Van de Kamp – Robinet, Van La Parra

AZ Alkmaar

It's quite a surprise that AZ Alkmaar are still inside the top four of the Eredivisie given their atrocious run of recent form. The Dutch giants have won just twice in their past 10 league meetings, a run stretching back to the beginning of November.

Predicted lineup: Owusu-Odoro – Wolfe, Bazoer, Goes, Penetra – Clasie, Mijnans, De Wit – Van Bommel, Pavlidis, Addai

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Vangelis Pavlidis

Pavlidis is looking to build on the brace he scored against Almere City earlier this season and also add to his impressive tally of 20 goals in the Eredivisie this term.

Four of AZ Alkmaar's five league defeats this season have come when Pavlidis has failed to score, so the Greek striker finding the back of the net is crucial for visitors.
