Reason For AZ Alkmaar vs Groningen Betting Tips

AZ have picked up six points and conceded no goals in their opening two matches of the new season, while visitors Groningen have won one and lost one so far but will be hoping to take advantage of their hosts’ busy schedule and claim another three points this weekend.

We’re expecting a tight and tense ninety minutes between these two clubs judging by their recent form and all of the stats heading into Sunday’s match, and the fact AZ have a Europa League qualifier on Thursday night means the hosts are bound to rotate their squad or risk tired legs and possibly even injury this weekend.

Under 2.5 goals have been produced in two of the last four meetings between these two clubs and AZ are unbeaten in their last seven matches against Groningen, which suggests that at worst the hosts will come away with a share of the spoils despite the obvious distraction of Thursday’s Europa League qualifier.

Both teams have only lost one of their last six matches in all competitions, so we’re expecting a close and competitive ninety minutes on Sunday. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of AZ’s last six and three of Groningen’s last four matches, which again suggests we will be in for a low-scoring afternoon in Alkmaar. AZ have kept five clean sheets in their last six attempts, while Groningen have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches all of which suggests we could be in for a goalless draw on Sunday.

We’re confident that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s match and have predicted a 0-0 final score. Both teams are in good form and have proven tricky to beat over the last month. Both teams have been tight at the back, keeping plenty of clean sheets in recent weeks, and with AZ playing in Europe on Thursday they are unlikely to be at their very best this weekend. Groningen don’t have the best of records at this ground, especially in recent seasons, so the most we can see the visitors taking home with them is a solitary point.
