Predictions and Odds for AZ Alkmaar vs Vitesse

AZ Alkmaar didn't have the best end to the first part of the season but will be looking forward to restarting their assault on the title.

AZ Alkmaar to Win

AZ was top of the league for some time in the first phase of the season before their slip in form cost them some important points. They lost three out of their last five matches, and the World Cup break came just in time for them to take a breather and refocus their energy in the preparation period. They played only two friendly games over that time and won both against formidable opposition, they beat Valencia 3-1, and then Atalanta by a single goal. Vitesse on the other hand lost both of their friendly matches. The visitors are without a win for their last three league games.

Over 2.5 Goals

Vitesse is in the top three teams with the highest number of ‘over' matches. They had eleven in their 14 matches played, and they are also on a streak of seven straight games with more than two goals scored. AZ Alkmaar is not bad in that aspect as well getting nine ‘over' matches in the same amount of games played.

Preview, Team News, and Probable Lineups

AZ Alkmaar

Defending is what cost AZ their top position after their slight meltdown in the last five games of the season. In their three losses during the crucial period, they conceded eight goals and lost to Excelsior and Waalwijk in two of those games. Losing to Feyenoord is not a surprise. Jens Odgaard has been leading the charge for Alkmaar with six goals, but the rest of the attack line isn't producing the best results. Vangelis Pavlidis is one of their most important players, and he only scored three times in the first 14 matches of the season. January transfer window has started and it is a question whether the Alkmaar management can find some funds to possibly bring in some reinforcements. AZ will be without Zinho Vanheusden and Bruno Martins Indi.

Probable lineup: Verhulst, Sugawara, Chatzidiakos, Beukema, Kerkez, Reijnders, de Wit, Clasie, Odgaard, Pavlidis, Karlsson.

Vitesse

The visitors have been struggling most of the season getting only three wins in 14 games played. They are on the brink of entering a fight to stave off relegation, but that will be a struggle. Their defense has been poor, as much as their attack was inefficient. There is no balance in the squad, and coach Phillip Cocu has a lot of issues that need to be fixed. Their three wins came against teams from the lower part of the rankings table which says a lot about their strength against the best teams in the league. Bartosz Bialek is their only doubt for the match because of injury.

Probable lineup: Reiziger, Arcus, Flamingo, Cornelisse, Wittek, Kozlowski, Tronstad, Yapi, Bero, Manhoef, Vidovic.

Player to Watch: Maximilian Wittek

The 27-year-old German left-back has been an essential part of the Vitesse lineup starting all of their games this season. In that period he accumulated five assists, the most in his team, and also managed to score a goal. He is a crossing maestro and the one who provides the team's forwards with essential opportunities for scoring goals.
