In the last match, they have lost in an away match against PEC Zwolle by (2‑1), after in the previous match they have lost (0‑1) at home, against ADO Den Haag. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium.

In their home league matches, the most frequent final score was the 3‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 10 of their 16 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

AZ is a team that likes to control their matches from inside the opponent’s midfield. They also like to use any opportunities to try to shoot from outside the area and prefer using the right wing to attack, using the offensive quality of winger Johansson. They often create many goal opportunities, but have a few efficiency problems in offence, so they don’t score as many goals as they could. The home coach will not be able to count on Henriksen, Haps and Lewis, who are injured.

Confirmed Lineup: Gino Coutinho, Mattias Johansson, Rajko Brežančić, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Ron Vlaar, Derrick Luckassen, Joris van Overeem, Ben Rienstra, Vincent Janssen, Dabney dos Santos, Mounir El Hamdaoui.

The away team is currently in the 8th position of the league, with 25 points won, after 7 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against De Graafschap, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Ajax, by (1‑0).

In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times but have turned the score around in 3.

The away team also has a few players unavailable, such as Janssen, Rubin and Hardeveld. They are also a modest team with a few weaknesses, so they play in a defensive 4-4-2 system, occupying the midfield with as many players as possible. But they also have a few qualities, such as their ability to keep fighting when they are in disadvantage, which is why they have been able to turn a few negative scores around.

Confirmed Lineup: Robbin Ruiter, Ramon Leeuwin, Christian Kum, Mark van der Maarel, Timo Letschert, Rico Strieder, Bart Ramselaar, Ayoub El Jorfi, Sébastien Haller, Nacer Barazite, Patrick Joosten.
