Reason For AZ Alkmaar vs Ajax Predictions

  • AZ beat Ajax 1-0 when the pair last met in Alkmaar back in March.
  • The hosts are in the midst of an unbeaten run of form across multiple competitions.
  • Ajax have lost their last two matches and have failed to score on each occasion.
  • The visitors remain top of the table by 3pts and due to their superior goal difference, even a defeat would likely see them stay above AZ.

AZ could be playing Ajax at the perfect moment

The last three meetings between these two clubs have ended in a win-to-nil with AZ collecting all three points in the pairs’ last encounter courtesy of a 1-0 final scoreline. AZ are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions, securing eight wins in the process, while Ajax’s seven-game unbeaten run came to an end when they lost 2-0 at home to Willem II last weekend and followed that up with a 1-0 defeat at home in the Champions League against Valencia.

AZ have kept five clean sheets in their last six matches, conceding their only goals during that period in a 2-2 draw at home to Partizan in the Europa League, and have only lost once at home this season, picking up six wins and one draw while Ajax are yet to lose on the road in the Eredivisie but have drawn twice.

AZ average 2.38 points per home game this season and boast a 75% win rate in their own backyard. The hosts also only concede an average of 0.63 goals per home game, which suggests they are in with a good chance of keeping a clean sheet this weekend, despite the obvious talent of the opposition.

The visitors’ unbeaten  home record came to a surprising end last weekend

Ajax concede an average of 1.25 goals per away game and both teams have scored in just 25% of AZ’s home games, which adds weight to our prediction for a 1-0 final scoreline in AZ’s favour. AZ have only conceded 5 goals at home while Ajax have conceded 10 goals on the road, and the hosts have kept clean sheets in 75% of their home games and have won-to-nil in 62% of those matches.

We’re confident that a double chance bet on the hosts will payout this weekend and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0. AZ head into the game as the clear form favourites with eight wins from their last nine matches, while Ajax look vulnerable for the first time this season following back to back defeats and no goals in their last two matches. If AZ are going to close the gap on Ajax then this would appear to be the most likely moment to do so, with the home advantage and form in their favour. However, Ajax are yet to lose on the road so the double chance bet covers us if the pair play out a draw.
