Bet365 tips Sunday Eredivisie clash predictions between Vitesse and AZ Alkmaar, including hunches, betting tips and possible lineups.
AZ Alkmaar go to the sunday game with Vitesse looking to record their fifth consecutive victory in the Eredivisie.
While the visitors are just two points behind second-placed PSV Eindhoven, Vitesse will move to a third point with maximum points over the weekend.
After successive defeats at the end of January, the head of AZ Pascal Jansen he would have been concerned that his team was in the right mindset to remain in the top five.
However, four consecutive wins, a streak that also included 12 goals, left Jansen with no doubt that this group of players could still finish as runner-up this season.
Myron Boadu got back on track, scoring five goals in two matches and raising his season count to 11 goals.
With three goals conceded at the other end in the same rounds, the young man’s contribution has been necessary, but Jansen needs his team to find a better balance to realize their potential.
At a time when AZ was following an upward trajectory, Vitesse lost track, recording three defeats in four league games.
A good performance in the second half helped ensure a 4-1 victory over the battered VVV-Venlo last weekend, a result supported by victories against the same opponent in the KNVB semi-finals.
However, Thomas Letsch he knows that Vitesse must improve if he wants to stay in the search for a guaranteed place in the Europa League next season, in addition to keeping his nose ahead of Feyenoord.
On loan from Chelsea Armando Broja has scored in the last three games, the 19-year-old having already scored 10 goals in all competitions in this campaign.
