In sharp contrast, the hosts are searching for the victory that would go some way to ensuring that they avoid relegation to the second tier.

For the first time since October, AZ have strung together a sustained unbeaten run, recording five wins and two draws from their most recent seven matches in the Eredivisie.

Most notably, 10 goals have been scored in the last three matches with clean sheets being recorded in wins over Excelsior, FC Volendam and Vitesse respectively.

The level of opposition should be noted – each of the aforementioned teams sit in the bottom three – yet it has enabled Maarten Martens to boost his chances of remaining at the helm in the long term.

Although the gap to third position remains at four points, maintaining the eight-point advantage over Ajax in fifth is just as important, and victory here would ease the pressure ahead of the weekend match against PSV Eindhoven.

Meanwhile, Heracles head into this contest on the back of collecting just one victory from their last six matches, yet more context is required regarding their efforts.

Their only victory during that period came against seventh-placed Go Ahead Eagles, while they only went down 1-0 away at FC Twente at the weekend.

Nevertheless, sitting just four points above the relegation zone, Erwin van de Looi knows that his side must maintain their recent level to avoid an immediate return to the Eerste Divisie.

Heracles vs. AZ Head to head

In the 39 previous meetings between these two teams, Heracles have claimed six victories while AZ have won 29, and they have drawn in four. AZ have scored 101 goals and conceded 37 in the process.

Heracles Team News

Despite the narrow defeat to FC Twente, Van de Looi is unlikely to overly tinker with his Heracles side for this match.

However, there are plenty of alternatives at his disposal, with Mario Engels the most obvious option for a recall in the final third.
