Go Ahead Eagles take on the visitors AZ Alkmaar in the round 18 match of Dutch Eredivisie. The match will be played on Wednesday, January 25th at De Adelaarshorst (Deventer).
Go Ahead Eagles managed to knock Herakles out of the Dutch Cup after the new year, modestly beating them 1-0. Then there was a victory in the championship over Fortuna 2-0 and in the previous round an eventful draw with Utrecht 2-2. What is generally typical for the "pride of IJssel" in the current championship, they recorded peaceful outcomes in 7 out of 16 matches played. And in seven o these matches they conceded at least two goals. And in total, the Eagles already have 26 conceded goals in, the most of all in the top ten of the table, which they close.

AZ Alkmaar are quite good this season. In the Conference League, they reached the playoffs by winning their group and taking 12 goals in it. In the Dutch Cup, they have already reached the 1/8 finals, knocking Excelsior out of the competition in the previous round, scoring 4 goals against them. In the league, with 36 points and 31 goals in 17 rounds, they are second in the table, just two points behind leaders Feyenoord. In the recent confrontation of the championship, the “Farmers” did not even leave a chance for a draw for Fortuna, beating her 3-1.
The odds put up for the victory of the second team from the standings of the championship over the 10th team in the table are embarrassing here, almost a deuce rolled out the odds for this event as if the bookmakers had agreed. Well, okay, it is quite possible to replace the division of points here with the performance of the visitors, the quality of which is mentioned above. As said about the vulnerability of the defensive redoubts of the hosts. I will only add that in 10 of the last 12 matches, AZ signed at least twice at the gate of the Go Eagles. And in 9 matches of the current championship, they scored at least two goals for his rivals. There are three very good snipers in the squad of the “Farmers”, Pavlidis and di Wit scored 5 goals each, the Dane Odgor scored 6 times. But in addition to them, 8 more team players have scored goals this season. Putting all the data together, it is quite possible to assume that AZ will once again be able to hit the Eagles gate with at least two goals.
Prediction for the match: AZ Alkmaar to score over 1.5 goals.
