The two sides will renew acquintances at AFAS Stadion on Thursday, with the winner facing the victor of the clash between West Ham United and Gent in the semi-finals.

AZ bounced back with a dominant 3-0 victory at Fortuna Sittard on Sunday, through goals from Jens Odgaard, Milos Kerkez and Vangelis Pavlidis, with Pascal Jansen’s side cementing fourth place in the Eredivisie table.

Although the Cheeseheads managed to win just one of their last five matches across all competitions, Sunday’s victory will give them confidence ahead of the second leg.

Including qualifiers, AZ have won 12 of their 15 European matches this season, scoring at least two goals in 10 of those victories.

Anderlecht head into the second leg off the back of a 5-2 defeat to Genk, as the Belgian Pro League leaders kept the Purple & White in 10th place on Sunday.

However, it is worth noting that Anderlecht carried a seven-game unbeaten run into Sunday’s contest, having recorded five wins and two draws across all competitions.

Brian Riemer’s side also kept six consecutive clean sheets before losing to Genk, so they will be eager to put the defeat behing them as quickly as possible and rediscover their impressive recent form.

Having lost just three of their last 17 matches across all competitions, Anderlecht will be hopeful of booking their spot in the Europa Conference League semi-finals.

AZ look set to be without key winger Jesper Karlsson for the second leg, as the Sweden international has missed the past two matches due to injury.

As a result, Vangelis Pavlidis will continue to lead AZ’s attack, with Jens Odgaard, Sven Mijnans and Myron van Brederode expected to operate behind the lone striker.
