AZ Alkmaar vs LASK Match Preview
LASK Linz picked it up over the winter break and they returned to Bundesliga as they shocked RB Salzburg (2-3) on Friday evening, snatching the important points and jumping the rivals to the top spot. They now hope to build on the performance and cause an upset at AFAS Stadion too, despite a tough challenge ahead.
Black-Whites extended a four-match winning streak since late January and we’ve seen them scoring goals on the regular, which promises an exciting contest here as well. They do have a lot to prove against tougher rivals and building on the display we’ve seen at Red Bull Arena will be crucial at this point in the campaign.
AZ Alkmaar have, on the other hand, seen a disappointing week behind them and they come into the match looking to end a streak of two losses. They’ve been knocked out of KNVB Beker by NAC Breda (1-3) in front of the home fans and they failed to bounce quickly, as Twente (2-0) denied them points on Saturday.
Cheeseheads still sit just six points behind Ajax on Eredivisie table and they had connected a three-match winning streak back in January. They’ll now want to put the disappointment of recent behind them and we expect them very motivated to impress, having shown off as a very tough nut to crack at this ground on many occasions this term.
We feel they’ll be able to earn an advantage here and we’ll go for them to do so in a Home win priced at 11/10 with bet365, which looks like great value despite the hiccups of recent and lack of defensive stability.
We do hope to see goals and we’re hoping they’ll have to outgun the visitors to secure it. With that in mind, we’re also backing Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 5/6 with BetVictor and looks like a solid approach for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner on the day.
