Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

The hosts need to throw everything at the visitors if they’re to overtun the 2-0 deficit, but that means they will leave gaps at the back for Anderlecht to exploit. Alkmaar have shipped at least once in all of their four home matches in this competition this season and it means goals look likely. With that in mind, over 2/5 goals and both teams to score makes appeal.

AZ Alkmaar 2-1

Reason for tip

We do like the look of goals here. Anderlecht were able to keep a clean sheet in the first leg but that looks unlikely this time around and we think by coming firing out of the blocks, the hosts can secure a 2-1 win.

AZ Alkmaar vs Anderlecht Predictions

  • Only a win will do for AZ Alkmaar and they need to throw the gauntlet at Anderlecht.
  • The hosts have conceded the first goal in five of their last six games.
  • AZ Alkmaar have conceded in each of their four previous home matches in this competition this season.

Hosts have it all to do

The hosts reached the semi-final of the UEFA Cup back in 2005 but in the Europa Conference League this season, AZ Alkmaar have it all to do as they seek to overcome a two goal deficit after losing 2-0 in Belgium. They simply have to come firing out of the blocks and whilst they should certainly find their way onto the scoresheet, their defence leaves a lot to be desired and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Anderlecht catch them out at least once.

The visitors know that they’re in control and they will hope that they can continue a trend after scoring the opening goal in five of their previous seven outings. However, they have not had ideal preparation ahead of this tie after suffering a heavy 5-2 defeat away at Genk, but perhaps they can be forgiven considering they will inevitably of had one eye on this fixture.

Goals are the way to go

We’re expecting an enthralling clash between these two outfits and we think goals can be expected. AZ Alkmaar need to score but they cannot be trusted defensively and as such, we will back over 2.5 goals and both teams to score.
