Tip Reasoning

  • AZ have won 5 of their last 7 matches against RKC.
  • AZ have kept clean sheets in their last two encounters with RKC.
  • AZ have won 4 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.
  • RKC have lost 5 of their last 6 matches in all competitions, failing to score in 2 of their last 3 games.

AZ have only lost once at home this season

AZ secured a 2-1 win away at in-form Heerenveen last weekend while RKC suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat in their own backyard against fellow relegation battlers VVV. The hosts head into Friday’s clash as the clear form favourites with four wins from their last six matches, while are likely to be low on confidence after losing five of their last six matches (including friendlies for both clubs).

These two teams haven’t met very often in recent years but since 2011 AZ have won four of their seven meetings with RKC and have kept clean sheets in three of the duos’ last six encounters. The hosts have looked strong at home this season, winning seven of their ten matches, while RKC have only managed to pick up 4pts on the road and have lost eight of their ten away games.

AZ average 2.20 points per home game and have a win ratio of 70% in their own backyard, while RKC average just 0.40 points per away game and have lost 80% of their matches on the road, so you can see why we are confident of a home win this Friday. The hosts score an average of 2.20 goals per home game and only concede 0.80 goals while RKC concede an average of 2.90 goals per away game, which is why we have backed a final score of 3-0 in favour of the hosts.

RKC have only won once on the road this campaign

60% of the hosts’ home games have seen over 2.5 goals scored while the same can be said about 80% of RKC’s matches on the road, and we are backing over 2.5 goals to be scored on Friday night as well. Both teams have scored in just 30% of AZ’s home games, with the hosts only conceding 8-goals in their own backyard and keeping clean sheets 70% of the time, while RKC have failed to score in 30% of their away games.

AZ have won-to-nil in an impressive 60% of their home matches this season and RKC have lost-to-nil in 30% of their away games, so you can see why we have backed the home side to claim all 3pts and keep a clean sheet on Friday night. 20% of AZ’s home games and RKC’s away games have produced exactly 3-goals this season, with a majority of the hosts’ matches (10) being won via a margin or 2-goals or more this season, and the visitors losing by a margin of 2-goals or more 9 times.

We’re confident that AZ will win-to-nil on Friday night and we have predicted a final scoreline of 3-0. The hosts arrive on Friday as the clear form favourites and have outplayed RKC in all departments. AZ have a strong home record in the Eredivisie while RKC have really struggled for points on the road and we expect those trends to continue on Friday night.
