Match Preview

Departing Heracles manager John Stegeman’s side narrowly lost to Ajax last time out to make it back to back Eredivisie defeats for the first time in 2018.
Despite AZ’s three extreme defensive blunders which led to a humiliating 3-2 defeat to the champions elect PSV, they retain a firm stranglehold on third place – eight points clear of Feyenoord in fourth.
The only way AZ will not be playing Europa League football next season is if they somehow lose three of their remaining four games, whilst Feyenoord pick up maximum points in theirs.
That result carried on Heracles’ shocking vein of away form (seven points from 15 games), but for this encounter they return to the Polman Stadium, where they have picked up the vast majority of their points this term (30 points from 15 games, fifth highest in the Eredivisie).
It is almost exactly a year to the day since this fixture took place last term, when AZ turned Heracles over with goals from Wout Weghorst and Alireza Jahanbakhsh (2-1).
AZ have dominated this fixture over the years, of 29 meetings in all competitions, Heracles have won just three (W3, D4, L22).
Players to watch: Bram Castro could prove instrumental in the Heracles goal after his man of the match performance against Ajax last time out saw him also featured in the Eredivisie team of the week.
Wout Weghorst (AZA) is on fire! He has scored six goals in his last seven games in all competitions and comes into this on the back of hitting a double last time out.
Stat attack: Expect goals! In 21 of Heracles’ last 25 Eredivisie home games, over 2.5 goals have been scored.
The same can be said of each of the last eight meetings between these sides (in all competitions) – in seven of those meetings, AZ scored at least three goals.
