Zwolle take on AZ Alkmaar in the 19th round of Eredivisie.
These two teams are separated by only one point and both teams have the ambition to qualify in the UEFA Europa League next season.
Zwolle stand at the 4th position and they are playing very good this season, especially at home, where they lost only once in Eredivisie this season (7-1-1).
In the last 5 league matches they have managed to win 4 times and they will be fully motivated to beat the main rival for the European place and be one step closer to Europa League.
The main problem for home side could be the absences. They will be without few important players.
Maikel van der Werff (18/2 d), Joost Broerse (11/1 d), Steven Pereira (1/0 d), Trent Sainsbury (11/0 d), Mustafa Saymak (15/4 m), Thanasis Karagounis (3/0 f) and Max de Boom (1/0 f) are all out, while their second top scorer Stef Nijland (17/5 m) is doubtful.
AZ Alkmaar is in the great form. In the last 9 league matches they lost only once (5-3-1).
They have the almost full squad available, except Jan Wuytens (5/0 d).
Interesting fact about AZ is that they are playing much better on away ground (5-1-2).
It’s not easy match to predict. Maybe the tie could be the real and acceptable for the both teams, but I believe that they will play an open football in which both teams could score.
