Reason For Sparta Rotterdam vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions

  • 21pts separate these two clubs heading into Saturday’s clash.
  • Sparta are looking to end a three-game run without a win this weekend.
  • AZ are hoping to make it eight league wins on the run.
  • The visitors have only lost one of their last twenty-six matches against Sparta.

AZ are looking to claim the top spot over the festive period

AZ have won five of their last seven matches against Sparta and under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the pairs’ last seven encounters. Sparta have lost three of their last six matches while AZ have won four of their last six games, so you can see why we have backed an away win this weekend.

Sparta have failed to score in their last three outings and AZ have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches, which ties in well with our 2-0 final scoreline. Sparta have conceded two goals in three of their last six matches and AZ have scored two or more goals in three of their last six outings, which is why we have backed a 2-0 win for the visitors on Saturday.

Sparta have lost twice at home this season and AZ have won six times on the road, with the hosts averaging 1.75 points per home game and the visitors averaging 2.38 points per away game. Sparta concede an average of 1.25 goals per home game and AZ score an average of 2.25 goals per away game, adding more weight to our prediction for a 2-0 final scoreline this weekend.

Sparta could drop into the bottom five with a defeat

Both teams have scored in just 25% of AZ’s away games and 88% of Sparta’s home games have produced over 1.5 goals as have 88% of AZ’s away games this season. AZ have kept clean sheets in 75% of their away games and have won-to-nil in 75% of their away games as well, providing another reason to back a 2-0 away win on Saturday.

AZ have scored in all of their away games this season and a majority of Sparta’s defeats this season (5) had a margin of 2 goals or more while the majority of AZ’s wins (10) have been obtained with a margin of 2 goals or more, making a 2-0 final scoreline look even more realistic this weekend.

We’re confident that AZ will win on Saturday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. The visitors head into the game as the clear form favourites and are flying right now following an impressive 1-0 win over Ajax. Sparta have struggled for wins in recent weeks and while their home form has been decent, we still expect AZ to be too strong for them over the ninety minutes.
