Volendam vs Alkmaar Match Analysis & Prediction
04/02/2023 12:00 am
AZ will look to keep the pressure on Feyenoord in the Eredivisie title race when they travel to Kras Stadium to take on Volendam in their Matchday 20 tie on Saturday night.
AZ Alkmaar have made a good campaign in Eredivisie this season with the side collecting 40 points from 19 fixtures to sit second in the league standings, two points behind Feyenoord at the summit.
They are coming off a 5-5 draw with Utrecht at home, which ended their three-match winning streak while allowing PSV to edge closer in the process. Pascal Janses’ side now sits just two points above PSV and they will be looking to quickly bounce back to maintain their top two spot.
They have a good record against Volendam having won seven of their last eight meetings and should be fancying their chances on Saturday.
Volendam are hovering above the relegation zone having collected 16 points from 19 points to sit 15th. They are just one point and one place above the danger zone and they need to maintain their momentum to keep further off the bottom-three.
They are coming off a 3-2 win over Gronigen, and have now just lost one of their last four fixtures –a run that will surely boost their confidence heading into the clash.
