Antwerp – AZ Alkmaar : Preview & Prediction
The draw for the Europa League preliminaries also gave a “derby”. It is the Antwerp-Dutch one between Antwerp and Az Alkmaar. Beyond the geographical or parochial issues, however, a decidedly interesting match, between two rising teams in their respective championships and also in Europe, as shown by the path taken so far in these preliminaries. The first leg did not issue any verdict and so the two teams will play everything in the return one.Antwerp slightly favored, but in reality the result of the first leg is definitely dangerous …

AZ Alkmaar, in fact, is an experienced and dangerous team, so aiming for 0-0 could be a boomerang.
Certainly Antwerp will do everything not to discover itself, trying to take advantage of any spaces left on the counterattack by opponents.
So far the Belgians have played four league games, two of which are at home, getting two wins: six goals scored and only one scored immediately.
Let’s say that the 1-1 draw is a far from decisive result. Antwerp cannot afford to make calculations, but it certainly will do nothing to help opponents: we choose the double chance 1X first time and we add the option No Goal.
