Vitesse vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions

  • The main prediction won in five of Vitesse’s last six matches.
  • The main prediction also won in nine of AZ’s last 11 competitive matches.
  • AZ are without a win in six consecutive away games (D3, L3).
  • The of the four managerial meetings of Thomas Letsch and Pascal Jansen saw BTTS & O2.5 goals.

A potentially exciting play-off encounter

Both of these sides featured in the Europa Conference League this season but were eliminated at the round of 16 stage by Roma and Bodo/Glimt, respectively. However, only one can feature in the competition next season, so expect both sides to go hammer and tong to nick a first-leg advantage in Arnhem.

Vitesse are not known for their defensive solidity, which was showcased brilliantly in their play-off semi-final after conceding three goals in the first-leg before coming back to qualify for this final with a 3-0 second-leg win.

A repeat of that clean sheet looks unlikely though, as Vitesse have not kept back-to-back shutouts since January. Moreover, Vitesse could only keep AZ from scoring at least once in six of the last seven H2H meetings.

Expect a typical topsy-turvy AZ away day

Much like their hosts, AZ had to claw back a first-leg deficit to reach the final. That 3-2 defeat in Heerenveen meant that AZ have conceded at least twice in five of their last six away trips.

Despite their dodgy defence, no home side has stopped AZ from getting on the scoresheet in any of their 12 trips during this calendar year. As such, we predict that this game will follow a similar pattern with both teams to score and over 2.5 total goals.

As for the correct score, we are sticking with an entertaining 2-2 draw, the same scoreline as in two of AZ’s last five matches.
