Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
AZ Alkmaar and VVV Venlo face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at AFAS Stadion. Arne Slot’s troops have been playing some exciting games of late. Following a 3-3 draw with Fortuna Sittard, AZ played out an unbelievable 4-4 draw with Sparta Rotterdam before the international break, and, no doubt, they are going to stick to their attacking style of play.
Despite dropping a four-goal advantage in their last league match, Arne Slot’s men are seen as hot favourites to beat Venlo at home. The bad news for the hosts is that goalkeeper Marco Bizot will have to serve his ban in Saturday’s football match. The Pride of the South, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-1 home defeat to Den Haag, and they are unlikely to spoil AZ’s party at AFAS Stadion.
