AZ and Utrecht meet at AFAS Stadion, in a match for the 17th round of the Eredivisie. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 4 head‑to‑heads they won 2, tied 1 and lost 1. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Eredivisie, on 20‑12‑2014, Utrecht won by (0‑3). E. Duplan (12' and 28' ) and M. Diemers (37' ) scored the goals of the match for Utrecht. AZ registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of AZ

After 5 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses, the home team is in the 11th position, havinf won 18 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against PEC Zwolle by (2‑1), after in the previous match they have lost (0‑1) at home, against ADO Den Haag. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 29 conceded; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 17 conceded. 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.
