AZ Alkmaar take on Vitesse Arnhem in their crunch Dutch Eredivisie fixture on Wednesday as they look to secure bragging rights over their rivals and amass more points in the league. Alkmaar go into the fixture on the back of a good form that saw them come from two goals behind to secure victory over Willem ll on Sunday.
The victory means that they (Alkmaar) have now won five games out of their previous six and dropped points in just one of their previous six fixtures. They play at home and will have to be at their best if they want to come out of this tie with all available three points.
Vitesse will prove to be a tough test for home side Alkmaar after their 1-0 victory over Feyenoord brought their rivals’ unbeaten run this season to an abrupt end. Thomas Letsch’s side showed real grit and a defensive masterclass in the game at the weekend as they proved too tough to be broken down by a spirited Feyenoord side who deserved more than the sour defeat.
The defensive solidity available at the disposal of Vitesse Arnhem is such a credible one and having conceded only nine goals in their last 13 games, they may yet frustrate Alkmaar in this encounter.
The game will be played at the AFAS Stadion, Alkmaar, on Wednesday at 15:30 UK time. The different ticket information can be found on the websites of both clubs, for fans who want to have a taste of real action that is expected to unfold in the match.
