AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur Best Predictions and Top Odds

Alkmaar lost some ground after last week's loss to Feyenoord but will have a chance to find some goals against the worst team in the league.

Over 3.5 Goals

Only one match out of the last five in the AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur duel ended with more than three goals scored, but this time around things might have ended differently. Cambuur has the weakest attack in the league scoring only 12 goals in 22 matches played, and looking at their chances of getting some goals here is intriguing. Alkmaar had three out of their last five games with over 3.5 goals while Cambuur's record stands at only four. However, they are playing in Alkmaar, and Cambuur had three out of their four over 3.5 games away from home. Looking at Alkmaar's recent home form, they had a 5-5 draw with Utrecht, and two weeks ago got a 5-0 win over Excelsior.

AZ Alkmaar to Win-to-Nil

While playing away from home, Cambuur scored only two goals in their last five matches, and out of 12 overall for the season, they scored seven when playing as a guest team. Even though AZ has conceded goals at home in four out of their last five matches, going against Cambuur's uninspiring attack, they might get two in a row with a clean sheet, thus this AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur prediction gives a nod to the home team getting an easy win without conceding a goal. Alkmaar is tied for second when it comes to the number of wins this Eredivisie season, they have 13 on the record, and they are looking at Ajax and Feyenoord who are two teams at the top, to potentially include themselves in a championship battle. One additional piece of information is relevant for this matchup, since 1999 when these teams first met, Cambuur has never beaten AZ Alkmaar. They played nine matches, out of which two were friendlies. Overall, Alkmaar won seven games.

Preview, Team News, and AZ Alkmaar vs Cambuur Lineups

AZ Alkmaar

Losing to Feyenoord set the team back five points in their title chase, and now they need to move on and make sure they gain some ground, especially against teams like Cambuur. There will be no excuse if they fail to beat the worst team in the league. Sem Westerveld, Sam Beukema, Bruno Martins Indi, and Dani de Wit are out with injuries.

Probable lineup: Ryan, Kerkez, Chatzdiakos, Goes, Sugawara, Clasie, Reijnders, Karlsson, Odgaard, Mijnans, Pavlidis.

Cambuur

The Leeuwarden team is all but set to be relegated once again. Cambuur has been the worst team in the league for some time now, and with an increasing points advantage over teams outside the relegation line, they are destined to play Second Division football next season. The guest team has the highest number of losses this season at 15 and considering that they allow almost two goals per game, coming into a match against AZ Alkmaar, there isn't much confidence for a positive outcome. Maxim Gullit, Jamie Jacobs, Robin Maulun, and Mimoun Mahi are out with injuries.

Probable lineup: Ruiter, Schmidt, Bergsma, Smand, Bangura, van Kaam, Paulissen, Hoedemakers, Breij, Johnsen, Foor.
