AZ Alkmaar to Win

Reason for tip

Apollon could be eliminated from the Conference League with defeat here whilst AZ will secure their progression with victory. We’re backing the Eredivisie leaders, who are unbeaten in 15 games, to overcome the Cypriot title challengers to do exactly that.

AZ Alkmaar 3-1

Reason for tip

Apollon have lost each of their games against Dutch opponents while conceding three goals per-match on average therein. However they did put two goals past AZ just last week, so they may find the net in an eventual 3-1 loss.

Apollon Limassol vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions

  • Apollon are winless in five of their last seven matches.
  • AZ are unbeaten in 15 consecutive competitive games (W13, D2).
  • Apollon have a 100% loss rate against Dutch opponents after five such games.

Bus fare home for Apollon

Currently sitting rock-bottom in this group, Apollon’s slender hopes of qualifying for the knockout phase are likely to end tonight unless they can post a reversal of their defeat to AZ Alkmaar just last week.

A winless record in five games against Dutch opponents isn’t likely to inspire much confidence amongst the Cypriots (L5), and neither is the fact that they conceded three goals per-match on average across those games!

Apollon ended a four-game winless run with a win as outsiders in their domestic league last time out, yet keeping up with the leaders in the Cypriot top-flight pales in comparison to the challenge that a rampant Eredivisie team will pose.

Expect a mature performance from the Cheese Heads

Currently leading the group with nine points, AZ will seal their progression into the knockout phase with victory here and as such will be able to use their final two games to rest players, so expect a full show of force from the Dutchmen here.

Manager Pascal Jansen recently spoke of keeping the momentum going, and so far that’s going great with 15 straight unbeaten games seeing them top the Eredivisie and their Conference League group. For a side performing better than other Dutch outfits playing in higher tiers of European competition, a 4/5 win price looks like a steal.

As for the correct score, we’re sticking with AZ to keep up the trend of Dutch sides averaging three goals per-game against Apollon. However, we fancy the hosts to at least get on the scoresheet as they desperately try to cling onto their European dreams, a 3-1 away win looks to have a good chance.
