Team News, Predicted Lineups, and Preview

AZ Alkmaar

AZ is still running high after some bad matches they played, but getting closer to league leaders Feyenoord is what they are looking for at this time. Matches like the one against Fortuna are where the titles are won sometimes, and they can't afford to drop points, especially when they are playing at home. They only lost once in their home stadium, it was against Feyenoord, but they also have three draw games which are where they lost important points. Fortunately for the Alkmaar team, their rivals Ajax and PSV also lost some points, so AZ is still second-placed at the moment four points away from the top. Alkmaar had a demanding schedule before the winter break with plenty of games to contend with, but they pulled it off mostly on a positive note. This club has won the Eredivisie twice in the past, the last time it happened was in the season of 2008-2009, so predicting the same outcome this time around is something that the fans are hoping for. Coach Pascal Jansen has some injuries to deal with, Sam Beukema and Matthew Ryan are out of the team, the latter with personal issues, while Sem Westerveld and Bruno Martins Indi will be a last-minute decision.

Predicted lineup: Verhulst, Sugawara, Chatzidiakos, Vanheusden, Kerkez, Clasie, Reijnders, Odgaard, de Wit, Karlsson, Pavlidis.

Fortuna Sittard

The Sittard outfit had one goal lead over PSV last week before pulling off a draw with a 98th-minute equalizer after having played almost the entire second half with ten players. Fortuna has been keeping their place near the middle of the table for much of the season, but with only one win in their last five games, things are getting more interesting as they are inching closer to the relegation zone. Strangely, their away form looks better, both of their wins were earned in two of their last four matches, so they will be hoping for a surprise result when facing AZ. It has been a long time since their last win against Alkmaar, it happened over 20 years ago. Arianit Ferati and Dimitrios Siovas are doubtful to play, while Dogan Erdogan will miss the tie because of a suspension.

Predicted lineup: Pandur, Radic, Guth, Navarro, Pinto, Vita, Cangiano, Duarte, Cordoba, Ozyakup, Yilmaz.

Player to Watch: Vangelis Pavlidis

The Greek center-forward has only played eight league matches this season because of different injuries, but still managed to score four goals and record an assist. He is Alkmaar's most important central attacker, and he will be crucial in getting a positive result against Fortuna.
