AZ Alkmaar vs PSV Eindhoven Match Preview
PSV Eindhoven have been caught at the top of the Eredivisie table by Ajax and will know there is zero margin for error in their final two matches if they are to retain the title.
It has been a tight struggle for supremacy between these two big Dutch rivals all season, similar to Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League, but PSV’s draw away to Vitesse Arnhem four matches ago allowed Ajax to join them at the summit.
No more points have been dropped by either team since then – and, of course, there has just been a break for the Dutch Cup Final won by Ajax and also a weekend off that gave the Amsterdam club time to prepare for their Champions League semi-final against Tottenham.
Obviously the heartbreaking manner of Ajax’s last-gasp defeat to Spurs, having been in a thoroughly commanding position, could have an effect on the title race, either in terms of galvanising them or rendering them unable to get up off the canvas.
That should not enter PSV’s minds, though, and instead they need to focus purely on winning away to an AZ Alkmaar side who, in fourth position in the table, are in excellent shape to go straight into the Europa League’s second qualifying round.
AZ’s recent form has not been convincing, however, and PSV are fancied to make it 11 consecutive victories against these opponents to ensure they still have every chance of holding on to the crown going into the season’s final day.
