Netherlands Eredivisie - AFAS Stadion

While a lot of the eyes will be on Ajax vs PSV Eindhoven this weekend, it's not the only big fixture. AZ Alkmaar welcome Feyenoord on Sunday with the hosts knowing anything less than three points will almost certainly end their hopes of earning a spot in the Champions League next season.

Win proability

Home: 17/5 (4.4) – 22.7%

Draw: 27/10 (3.7) – 27%

Away: 3/4 (1.75) – 57.1%

Without a doubt, this is going to be a very tough fixture given how close they are in the league. However, with AZ Alkmaar at home and boasting the top scorer in the division, we fancy Pavlidis to outscore the opposition at 15/2 (8.5) although it is a long shot with only an 11.8% chance of coming in.

In other markets, you could opt for entertainment and have faith in the away side. If that's the case, then Both Teams to Score and Feyenoord to win with attractive odds of 9/4 (3.25). Especially when the probability figures suggest this bet would have a 30.8% chance of landing.

AZ Alkmaar vs Feyenoord prediction

AZ Alkmaar vs Feyenoord team news

AZ Alkmaar

AZ Alkmaar have slipped down the table at an alarming rate in recent weeks. The Dutch giants have won just two of their past 10 league matches and now they are certainly out of a title race and looking unlikely to secure Champions League football.

Predicted lineup: Owusu-Oduro, Wolfe, Penetra, Bazoer, Esteves – De Wit, Clasie, Mijnans – Van Brederode, Pavlidis, Poku

Feyenoord

Feyenoord are in much better form than AZ Alkmaar, however, it's still not the kind of form that puts you comfortably in the top two. Just three wins in their last six games has seen their lead over third reduced to just five points, which makes this a must-win match.

Predicted lineup: Bijlow – Hartman, Hancko, Trauner, Geertruida – Wieffer, Timber, Stengs – Paixao, Gimenez, Minteh

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Calvin Stengs

Calvin Stengs missed Feyenoord's 0-0 draw against FC Twente last week and it showed. The Dutch midfielder sits second in the squad when it comes to shot-creating actions with 76.

So, if he returns – as is expected this weekend – then it surely makes Feyenoord favourites to win this game in impressive fashion.
