Over 2.5 Goals

According to the statistics, there is a 62% chance that this match will produce over 2.5 goals. Also, the last six h2h meetings saw the same number of goals as did Heerenveen’s four of their last six home games and AZ’s 11 of their last 12 away fixtures.

Four times in the last 12 meetings with Heerenveen, Alkmaar won by the score of 2-1. Moreover, seven times Alkmaar won by this score while Heerenveen lost by the score of 2-1 in four fixtures.

Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Heerenveen vs AZ Alkmaar

Heerenveen finished eighth in the Eredivisie and gained the chance to have a shot at playing in Europe. Looking at Heerenveen’s season, they were in the bottom ten on the league’s standings in February after a seven-match losing streak.

However, interim coach Ole Tobiassen did a great job in the last three months and grabbed 16 points. As a result, Heerenveen showed great character to overcome that slump and showed great attacking effectiveness in their last three home games scoring three times in each of them.

On the other hand, AZ Alkmaar are coming into this match on the back of a four-match winless run. In fact, because of this form, the Cheese Farmers lost the chance to play in the Europa League playoffs. 

The main problem for coach Pascal Jansen is his defense as they conceded at least one goal in their last 14 fixtures. Moreover, the average goals conceded in the last eight games by Alkmaar is 1.75 which is higher by 35.7% of their season’s average of 1.29 goals.

Heerenveen vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

We predict Alkmaar to regroup and be at their best in this match and play for the victory. With 20 more points than Heerenveen during the regular, we think Alkmaar will win this match.

Safe Bet

Both teams scored in Heerenveen’s 59% of home games while the same trend happened in Alkmaar’s 76% of away games. Hence, with odds of 1.66 at Vbet, we will back both teams to score as our safe bet.

Get Rich Quick

In Alkmaar’s last eight fixtures, six times there were over 0.5 goals in the first 30 minutes. Likewise, the same feat happened in Heerenveen’s five of their last six games. As a result, with odds 2.70, we will back over one goal to be scored in the first 30 minutes.

Heerenveen vs AZ Alkmaar First Goalscorer

Vangelis Pavlidis is Alkmaar’s top scorer this season with 16 strikes and is on fire in recent games scoring four times in as many games. Also, the Greek forward was the player to open the scoring in several games. Thus, we will back Pavlidis to be the first goalscorer in this match.
