Utrecht

Preview:
AZ and Utrecht meet at AFAS Stadion, in a match for the 17th round of the Eredivisie. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in the last 4 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 20‑12‑2014, in a match for the Eredivisie, Utrecht won by (0‑3). The goals of the match were scored by E. Duplan (12' and 28' ) and M. Diemers (37' ) for Utrecht. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since AZ presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of AZ

The home team is currently in the 11th position of the league, with 18 points won, after 5 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against ADO Den Haag, by (0‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against PEC Zwolle, by (2‑1). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Kozakken Boys by (1‑3). For the league, AZ won 10 points out of 24 possible points, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in the last 8 home matches. The most recurrent final score in their home league matches was the 3‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

AZ is a team that likes to control their matches from inside the opponent’s midfield. They also like to use any opportunities to try to shoot from outside the area and prefer using the right wing to attack, using the offensive quality of winger Johansson. They often create many goal opportunities, but have a few efficiency problems in offence, so they don’t score as many goals as they could. The home coach will not be able to count on Henriksen, Haps and Lewis, who are injured.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Coutinho, J. Gouweleeuw, M. Johansson, R. Vlaar, R. Brežančić, D. Luckassen, J. van Overeem, B. Rienstra, V. Janssen, D. dos Santos, M. El Hamdaoui.
Coach: J. van den Brom.

Analysis of Utrecht

The away team is currently in the 8th position of the league, with 25 points won, after 7 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against De Graafschap, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Ajax, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 34 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 8 wins, 6 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 33 goals scored and 20 conceded. In their last match, for the KNVB Beker, they got an away win against Achilles '29 by (0‑5). In the last 8 away league matches Utrecht has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 24 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times but have turned the score around in 3.

The away team also has a few players unavailable, such as Janssen, Rubin and Hardeveld. They are also a modest team with a few weaknesses, so they play in a defensive 4-4-2 system, occupying the midfield with as many players as possible. But they also have a few qualities, such as their ability to keep fighting when they are in disadvantage, which is why they have been able to turn a few negative scores around.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Ruiter, M. van der Maarel, R. Leeuwin, T. Letschert, C. Kum, B. Ramselaar, R. Strieder, Y. Ayoub, S. Haller, N. Barazite, P. Joosten.
Coach: E. ten Hag.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that AZ won’t win. The away team has done better so far in the league and has the advantage in the head-to-head history, Moreover, the last time these two teams met at this stadium Utrecht won 0-3. Therefore, we believe they will, at least, get a point from this match, which is why the double chance in favour of the away team is of good value.
