Antwerp vs AZ Alkmaar Match Preview
AZ will have their regrets but only felt really dominant with an extra man late in the match as Myron Boadu tap-in left them with a 1-1 draw ahead of the trip to Antwerp for the return match of their Europa League Play-offs clash, with an obvious need to go for a goal at Stade Roi Baudouin.
Cheeseheads have a seven-match unbeaten streak behind them and we’ve seen them keep three consecutive clean sheets on the road, which will give Arne Slot’s men reason to be hopeful. However, they’ve seen trouble breaking down the Belgian rivals and this could be more worrying for the travelling fans.
Antwerp have seen a more unpredictable spell of form and the losses at both Sporting Charleroi (2-1) and Viktoria Plzen (2-1) have seen few keeping faith of an upset in the first leg. Still, they’ve managed a positive result and now come as slight favourites to make their way to the Group Stage.
The Great Old have indeed been more confident in front of the home fans and will now hope to make it count, despite playing 30 miles out in Brussels. They’re yet to suffer a home loss this term and managed a 1-0 win over Viktoria Plzen at this ground, which will be a great boost to their confidence.
We feel we’re in for a very narrow contest on the day as well and we’re now sticking our necks out for another Draw between the sides, which comes at 5/2 with Unibet and could take the contest into extra time at Stade Roi Baudouin.
With that in mind, we’re not hoping to see many goals and we’re also backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with Coral. We’ve seen both sides solid at the back and with a lot to play for, we feel we’re in for tough defensive displays on both ends once again.
