AZ Alkmaar vs Waalwijk PredictionAZ Alkmaar vs Waalwijk Prediction and Preview for Friday's Eredivisie fixture. It’s a two-horse title race at the business end of the Eredivisie standings with Ajax and AZ Alkmaar tussling it out for the right to claim the league title at the end of the campaign. Indeed, the title race has gone right down to the wire.
Match status: 2019/20 Eredivisie - Matchweek 21
Kick-off:
Venue: AFAS Stadion (Alkmaar)

As expected, reigning champions Ajax set the pace at the top of the log with 47 points from 20 games but have AZ hot on their tails. The Cheeseheads are giving Ajax a run for their money, just three points adrift the league leaders.

Head coach Arne Slot will be delighted with the manner in which his players have approached each game this season. They have that drive to grind out results, even against the odds. As such, they have excelled so far in the Eredivisie.

With basement club Waalwijk up next for Slot’s side, the home side are expected to cruise to a comfortable victory over this opponent.

AZ Alkmaar vs Waalwijk Team News

Following back-to-back defeats in the league, AZ Alkmaar returned to winning ways, following a frantic encounter at Heerenveen. Even on the road, they were required to muster a victory to overturn their misfortunes and they duly delivered.

Huffing and puffing for large parts of the game, AZ had enough about themselves to see of the challenge of Heerenveen posting a 2-1 scorecard. The victory was a much-needed breather for the hosts who are currently playing second fiddle to Ajax on the ladder.

At the moment, the home team are three points short of the table toppers and seven points ahead of third-placed Feyenoord.

On the other hand, RKC Waalwijk have been branded as the worst side in the cluster, no arguments there. The guests have been coping poorly in their domestic campaign and have nothing to show but flashes of brilliance on very few occasions.

Miserably, it is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have just one measly win from their outings in the top flight. In sharp contrast, AZ Alkmaar have been at the losing end only twice at home this season.

Furthermore, the hosts have been resilient in their previous meetings with this foe here and are presently on a nine-match unbeaten streak. Given that the reverse fixture of this matchup also saw AZ Alkmaar come out on top, a defeat is certainly looming large for the visitors in this one.

In addition, the home team have had their scoring boots on in their previous h2h clashes here. Impressively, they have racked up nineteen goals from their last six meetings alone.

Meanwhile, twelve of the twenty-three goals that RKC Waalwijk have netted so far, have come from their fixtures on the road. As such, it is certainly safe to rule out any chances of a low scoring affair this week.

Injured or Suspended Players:

AZ Alkmaar: Pantelis Hatzidiakos, Albert Gudmundsson.

Waalwijk: Henrico Drost, Stanley Elbers.
