AZ Alkmaar vs Emmen Best Predictions and Top Odds

The hosts are in the middle of a difficult period of seven days with three important matches in the process.

Half-Time Emmen

There is no question that AZ Alkmaar is the favorite in this match. These teams have met eight times in the past and every single game was one by AZ. However, regarding this AZ Alkmaar vs Emmen prediction, this will be the third game in seven days for AZ, and with their limited availability when it comes to the senior players on the team, there should be a chance for Emmen to make a surprise result, at least after the opening 45 minutes of play. The fact that Emmen won two out of their last three away matches should give them some confidence ahead of this tie.

Over 2.5 Goals

With fatigue being something to consider for this AZ Alkmaar vs Emmen match when it comes to the home team, going with more than two goals seems like a reasonable resolution. Three of the past five games between these teams went over the line, and looking at their current league form, AZ had two over 2.5 goals matches from their last five while Emmen had four from the same number of matches played. The guest team, on the other hand, has been more of an ‘under' team this season than the other way around.

AZ Alkmaar vs Emmen Lineups, Team News, and Preview

AZ Alkmaar

The host had the most important match of the season on Thursday in the semifinals of Europe's Conference League against West Ham, and that encounter will certainly leave some fatigue to the players. AZ has had a terrific season with all the limitations they had with their team, as some of the players barely had any rest the entire season. Jesper Karlsson, Dani de Wit, Sem Westerveld, and Bruno Martins Indi are injured while Pantelis Chatzdiakos is suspended.

Potential lineup: Ryan, Sugawara, Beukema, Dekker, Kerkez, Clasie, Reijnders, Odgaard, Mijnans, van Brederode, Pavlidis.

Emmen

The guest team is just outside the relegation zone, but only on goal difference in front of Excelsior. They will be pleased with the tough schedule that has hit the home side and will hope that fact will give them a chance in this weekend's all-important clash. Rui Mendes, Jeff Hardeveld, Metehan Guclu, Maikel Kieftenbeld, and Mart Lieder are unlikely to play this week.

Potential lineup: van der Hart, Burnet, Veldmate, Araujo, te Wierik, El Messaoudi, Veendorp, Antonisse, Diemers, Romeny, Zivkovic.

Player to Watch: Ole Romeny

The strength of AZ Alkmaar's team is known, but the focus for the visiting team will be on their top scorer Ole Romeny. The young Dutch forward has been impressive this season scoring ten goals in 30 league appearances while assisting on a single occasion.
