Utrecht vs AZ Alkmaar team news

Utrecht

After losing 7 of their first 8 matches in Eredivisie this season, Utrecht managed to turn things around lately and they are now on a five-game unbeaten run, including two wins and three draws. That being said, they are still near the very bottom of the standings, so they will need to keep this form up to avoid relegation battle.

Meanwhile, Mike van der Hoorn, Quentin Merlin, and Fabien Centonze are out with injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Barkas – Leliendal, Flamingo, Sagnan, Ter Avest – Bozdogan, Fraulo – Jensen, Seuntjens, Azarkan – Lidberg

AZ Alkmaar

While AZ Alkmaar did suffer their first loss of the season in Eredivisie a couple of rounds ago against Feyenoord, the fact is that this has so far been one of the best season for AZ in recent years. After all, they are currently third in the standings with 9 wins in 12 games.

Sven Mijnans will miss the next game with a knee injury, while Riechedly Bazoer is questionable.

Predicted Lineup: Ryan – Sugawara, Martins Indi, Penetra, Wolfe – Mihailovic, Clasie, Dantas – Pavlidis, Poku, Van Bommel

Confirmed Utrecht vs AZ Alkmaar lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch: Vangelis Pavlidis

With 15 goals in the league so far, Vangelis Pavlidis is only behind Feyenoord's Sergio Gimenez on the list of top goalscorers and it's a very tight race. In any case, Pavlidis is crucial for this AZ Alkmaar team and our player to watch in this game.
