Key information about RKC Waalwijk vs AZ Alkmaar

Defending will be the key for Waalwijk

The host has a goal difference this season at 21-21 which is fine by their standards, and somehow they are still high in the rankings at ninth position. It seems that the biggest strength for the hosts is their capability to threaten the opponent's goal from different positions on the field. Goals were scored by everybody from the defensive part of the team to their forwards. Sometimes, RKC plays a bit too offensive, and they have trouble getting back on defense when they accumulate mistakes and concede goals. Those kinds of mistakes won't be tolerated against a team as good as AZ.

RKC Waalwijk's probable 11: Vaessen, Lelieveld, Gaari, Adewoye, Van den Buijs, Lutonda, Clement, Anita, Vroegh, Bel Hassani, Lobete.

AZ had some curious results lately, suffering three losses in a row before getting back on their winning ways by beating Vaduz in the Europe Conference League, and last weekend getting the best out of Volendam. But, all those matches were tight affairs with a single goal the difference. Jens Odgaard was brought in this past summer from Sassuolo, and he proved to be a valuable signing scoring six goals so far. AZ has a lot of problems with injuries, Vangelis Pavlidis was missing from action for some time, and coach Pascal Jansen finally had him back this past weekend against Volendam.

AZ Alkmaar's probable 11: Verhulst, Kerkez, Dekker, Beukema, Chatzidiakos, Reijnders, Bazoer, Clasie, Karlsson, Odgaard, Sugawara.

Team News:
