Reason For Ajax vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in just 1 of the last 5 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Both teams have scored in just 1 of Ajax’s last 6 matches.
  • Ajax concede an average of 0.50 goals per home game.
  • AZ concede an average of 0.82 goals per away game.

AZ edge the form guide and beat Ajax in December

Ajax lost 1-0 away at Heracles last weekend while AZ claimed a 2-0 win in their own backyard against Zwolle, meaning the gap between the two clubs was reduced to just 3pts. AZ edge the form guide heading into Sunday’s clash with three wins, one draw, and two defeats from their last six outings, as Ajax have won three and lost three of their last six matches in all competitions.

Only one of the last five meetings between these two clubs saw both teams score and just one of Ajax’s and three of AZ’s last six matches in league and cup have also seen both teams score, so you can see why we have gone with a ‘Both Teams to Score – No’ bet this weekend.

Ajax have only dropped points in one of their twelve home games in the Eredivisie this season but won’t have faced anyone as tough as AZ this season. The visitors have picked up points in eight of their eleven away trips and beat Ajax 1-0 when the pair met in December for their reverse league fixture.

Both teams have very strong defences that should prove difficult to unlock

The hosts average 2.75 points per home game while the visitors’ average 2.00 points per away game, which suggests that a draw is the most likely result this Sunday. Both teams have great defensive records with Ajax conceding an average of 0.50 goals per home game and AZ conceding an average of 0.82 goals per away game, which is why we have backed the pair to paly out a 0-0 draw this weekend.

Both teams have scored in just 33% of Ajax’s home games as well as in 27% of AZ’s trips on the road, adding further weight to our prediction for only one or neither team scoring on Sunday. Ajax have kept clean sheets in 58% of their home games, which is very impressive, and AZ have kept their opponents from scoring in an equally impressive 55% of their away games.

We’re confident that we won’t see both teams score this Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 0-0 between the pair. Ajax aren’t in the best of form but both sides have midweek Europa League ties to negotiate before they can turn their full attention to this weekends’ clash and this is one of the reasons we can see this top of the table battle ending in a goalless draw. Both teams have excellent defensive records and we have backed the defences to come out on top this Sunday.
