Tip Reasoning

  • AZ have not lost a home game since September (W8, D1).
  • Heracles won just once away from home since March (W1, D2, L10).
  • The main selection would have won in 11 of the last 13 H2Hs in Alkmaar.

Cheese heads to put in a mature performance

The 2021/22 campaign is going from strength to strength as far as AZ are concerned, they currently boast a seven-game unbeaten run which culminated in a 2-1 win to knock Ajax from top-spot last weekend. As such, they head into this brimming with confidence.

Not only are AZ in fine form, you must look all the way back past 15 home H2Hs to 2007 to find the last time that the Alkmaarders failed to score at least twice against Heracles Almelo. Consequently, I predict that history may well repeat itself.

Away woes continue for the Almeloans

The visitors are really struggling for form this season and a run of four consecutive Eredivisie defeats ahead of this distracting cup clash leaves Heracles flying close to the sun in terms of a potential relegation.

While Heracles’ only competitive away win since March came in the KNVB Cup, that was against amateur Tweede Divisie side, ASWH (3-1). On the evidence, this will be a long night for Heracles.

All in all, I predict an entertaining 2-1 home victory for AZ. The recent form of the hosts is simply irresistible while Heracles can’t stop leaking goals on their travels.
