Under 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

The unders have been the way to go when Anderlecht have taken to the field after seven successive games have produced under 2.5 in total. Alkmaar are not in good form and avoiding a defeat here will be the priority. Chances could be few and far between so backing less than three goals in total looks the best option.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

The hosts are used to being involved in tight games and whilst they have been defensively sounds, European competitions offer a completely different test. The first leg will be tight and as such, a 1-1 draw looks very possible.

Anderlecht vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions

  • All of Anderlecht’s last seven games have featured fewer than three goals in total.
  • The hosts have not conceded in five successive matches.
  • The previous two meetings between these sides were settled by a single goal.

Contrasting forms to play a part

The hosts have hit a purple patch coming into this clash with AZ Alkmaar having gone undefeated in six successive matches, winning four of those and getting on the scoresheet in five of them. Those matches have often been tight affairs and ahead of this match, each of their prior seven games have seen under 2.5 goals land and in this first leg tie, the visitors will be hoping it’s another close encounter.

The same cannot be said for AZ Alkmaar who have not tasted victory in their last three matches but have tasted defeat on two occasions. They were fantastic in the previous round as they emerged victorious over Lazio 4-2 on aggregate but this will be an exceptionally tough game. First leg clashes are often close and they will be determined simply to avoid another defeat here. They’ll likely try to frustrate the hosts and hope they can nick a goal to give themselves an advantage ahead of the second leg.

Goals could be few and far between

Backing the unders on Anderlecht matches has landed with frequency of late and with the way this game looks setup, the unders appear to be the way to go once again.
