Nijmegen vs AZ Alkmaar – Prediction, and Match Preview

Nijmegen vs AZ Alkmaar – After losing to West Ham on Thursday in the Conference League semifinal, AZ Alkmaar will play NEC Nijmegen at Goffertstadion in the Dutch Eredivisie’s last round.

With only two games remaining, AZ is currently in fourth place in the league standings. They want to pass third-placed Ajax, who has a difficult away game on the season’s last day.

Pascal Jansen’s club is the favorite going into the match on Sunday in Nijmegen, especially given the effort they put in last weekend in the 5-1 thrashing of FC Emmen.

AZ Alkmaar confirmed their outstanding domestic form by scoring five consecutive goals in the first half of the match against Emmen.

Because AZ has only given up one goal in their past four league games, and that goal was just Emmen’s consolation goal last weekend at the AFAS Stadion, head coach Jansen can be very pleased with his team’s recent defensive performances.

Last Saturday, Nijmegen suffered a humiliating loss, losing 4-0 away to Twente. For Rogier Meijer’s team, it was their third loss in their previous four league games.

At least three goals have been scored against NEC in each of their defeats up to this point. Is it possible for them to keep the peace here in relation to AZ?

Nijmegen vs AZ Alkmaar – Betting Analysis

With 19 victories, eight ties, and only eight  losses in the previous 45 meetings between the two teams, AZ Alkmaar has a strong record against NEC.

In their previous four encounters with Nijmegen, AZ Alkmaar also had two victories and two draws. In each of the previous five head-to-head matches, both teams scored.

Despite the exhaustion their players will be feeling after playing West Ham in the middle of the week, AZ Alkmaar are the clear favorites in this matchup despite NEC Nijmegen’s recent struggles.

What are the best odds for this match?

Looking at what the bookmakers’ view is of this game in the full-time result market, putting your money on NEC is available for 3.96, a wager on the game finishing all-square is 4, and selecting the winner to be AZ comes in at 1.82. These are the most competitive market prices on offer at this very moment.
