Go Ahead Eagles preview: Looking forward to the UECL playoffs

While Go Ahead Eagles still need one point more to officially clinch their spot in the Europa Conference League playoffs, even if they lose both of their remaining matches they will likely be in the playoffs. After all, they are currently six points ahead of Heerenveen, the only team that's still posing a danger, but Go Ahead Eagles also have a much better goal difference.

Meanwhile, Go Ahead Eagles enter this match with a clean bill of health.

AZ Alkmaar preview: Can they keep the momentum going?

With three wins in a row, including a crucial win over Twente in the last round, AZ Alkmaar have managed to stay in the race for third place in the standings and a place in the Champions League. Right now, AZ Alkmaar remain two points behind Twente, with two games left in the season, so just them winning the remaining matches still won't be enough unless Twente slip up in one of their games.

However, AZ Alkmaar's injury list is long at the moment, with Jordy Clasie, Lequincio Zeefuik, Dave Kwakman, Mayckel Lahdo, Lewis Schouten, Bruno Martins Indi, and Sem Westerweld all on the sidelines.

Predicted Lineup: Raya – Sugawara, Goes, Bazoer, Wolfe – Dantas, Kwakman – Mijnans, De Wit, Van Bommel – Pavlidis

Player to watch: Vangelis Pavlidis

The Greek forward is the leading goalscorer in the league once again after he scored the winning goal against Twente in the last round. So, Pavlidis now has 28 goals, one more than Luuk de Jong.

Will Pavlidis score first?

We saw the Greek forward score the first goal in a game in the Eredivisie on seven occasions so far. Can Pavlidis do that once again in this upcoming duel with Go Ahead Eagles?
