AZ Alkmaar vs Partizan – Prediction (Europa League – 28.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Both teams have scored in all three meetings between FK Partizan and AZ Alkmaar in all competitions, with the Serbian side netting at least twice each time.

Unbeaten AZ Alkmaar (W2, D2) progress to the round of 32 should they avoid defeat here vs Partizan Belgrade. The hosts been absolutely rampant in all competitions this term and have not conceded a goal in 567 minutes of play, winning six consecutive games each by a margin of 3+ goals (4.0 scored per-match average). AZ are unbeaten in five of seven overall games vs Serbian opposition in European competition (W2, D3, L2). Notably though, both of those defeats came against Partizan in 2015/16 qualifying, and all three of their H2Hs with the Serbian giants saw both teams score and over 2.5 match goals.

On the other hand, Partizan have a poor record away from home in the Europa League (UEL) group stage, winning just three of 17 such games (W3, D3, L11). Interestingly though, one of those victories was against AZ and all three were against teams beginning with the letter ‘A’ (Astana, AZ, Augsburg)! Coming into the game on the back of three straight competitive defeats, 11 of Partizan’s last 16 road trips in all competitions have seen just one side score – including four of their five defeats in that sequence.

Players to watch: Teun Koopmeiners has scored a league-high eight opening goals in the Eredivisie since the start of 2019, he also scored the opener in AZ’s last UEL home match.Partizan’s Umar Sadiq knows this opposition well, having scored vs AZ whilst on a loan spell with Breda. He also featured in a 2-0 victory in his only Eredivisie appearance at this stadium.

Stat attack: AZ have kept seven clean sheets from ten European matches this season (W5, D5 – including qualifiers). AZ have received a red card in two of the three H2Hs. Five of Partizan’s last six away games have produced over 2.5 goals (in all competitions).
