Tip Reasoning

  • Only two sides saw over 2.5 goals in more Eredivisie games than AZ’s 19.
  • Vitesse’s Eredivisie matches average 2.8 goals per-match.
  • AZ scored in both halves of 56% of their Eredivisie games.
  • Four of the last five H2H meetings produced over 2.5 goals.

An exciting affair in the play-off race

While the Conference League play-off positions will not change at this stage, AZ have one eye on going for third place, a spot that will seal direct entry to the European qualification round.

However, the Cheeseheads have lost ground on that goal across the last two rounds (D1, L1), a double header of poor results that directly followed five straight league wins, so it is clear they certainly have something in their locker.

Scoring goals isn’t usually a problem for AZ, they found the net at least twice in six of their last seven Eredivisie games while six of those clashes also produced over 2.5 goals in total, suggesting that the trend leans towards exciting encounters.

Inconsistencies threaten to derail Vitesse

A run of just one win from Vitesse’s last seven league games has left their position in the play-off places looking less stable by the week. While they will remain in the picture even with defeat, it could put them within touching distance of dropping out.

A return of one clean sheet across their last six away games doesn’t inspire confidence in Vitesse holding out here, which becomes even less inspiring when considering the fact that they failed to win 11 of the last 12 away H2Hs.

We think there is value in backing over 2.5 goals in this match at a shade of odds on, these two sides have shown inconsistencies across the last few weeks and it could very well end up being an entertaining 2-2 stalemate as a result.
