Match Preview

Friday night’s Eredivisie action gets underway with AZ Alkmaar’s trip to Fortuna Sittard, for the first league meeting between these sides in Sittard since the 2001/02 season.
Unbelievably, the newly-promoted hosts could end the day ahead of AZ in the European play-off positions with a victory. They are looking to extend their winning streak at home to four games (W3, D1, L1) with only the classic ‘big three’ (Ajax, Feyenoord, PSV) and Utrecht in better home form.
In contrast, AZ have dropped 15 points from winning positions – already equal to their total for the entirety of last season. Furthermore, AZ are now winless in two after letting a 2-0 lead slip in their last away match for a 2-2 draw.
Additionally, AZ have failed to win in ten of the 13 prior Eredivisie H2H matches against Sittard here (W3, D4, L6). However, AZ coach John van den Brom is unbeaten in five of his six managerial H2H encounters with Sittard (W4, D1, L1).
Players to watch: Will VAR play a part today? Mark Diemers has scored three penalties in Sittard’s last two home matches.
AZ’s standout performer has been Oussama Idrissi, the skilful wideman scored in their last away match and could break his personal best for an Eredivisie season with one more.
Stat attack: Sittard have been winning at both HT/FT in their last three home games, scoring exactly three goals in each.
Sittard’s last game saw goals in both halves, and each of Sittard’s last seven Eredivisie matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
The same can be said about 13 of AZ’s last 14 league matches.
Additionally, AZ have scored first in six out of their last eight matches across all competitions.
