Utrecht II AZ II betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

This is a fascinating matchup between the worst and best reserve teams in the 2023/2024 Eerste Divisie. Jong Utrecht is currently enduring a dismal run of form, having failed to win in their last 10 matches and failing to score in their last 4 outings. They've also struggled at home, boasting the worst home attack in the league. On the other hand, Jong AZ stands out as the league's top tackler and has been involved in high-scoring affairs away from home. In their last encounter on August 14, 2023, during the opening round of this season, Jong AZ secured a (1-0) victory at home, extending an impressive streak: they've won their last 4 matches against Jong Utrecht without conceding a goal. With this in mind, we'll place our bet on Jong AZ with a +0.5 Asian Handicap, as we anticipate the league's top reserve team to capitalize against the league's bottom reserve team.

Analysis Utrecht II

The home team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 20 points won, after 4 wins, 8 draws and 12 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Roda JC Kerkrade, by (0‑0). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Jong Ajax, by (0‑1). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 draws and 11 losses in away matches; against 4 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Utrecht II has a record of 3 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 30 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 11 matches). Their offense needs to do better, since they haven’t scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches for this competition there is a tendency for few goals, since 9 of the last 11 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 10 of their 24 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Jong Utrecht is currently the worst reserve team in the 2023/2024 Eerste Divisie and is enduring a terrible phase, having not won in the last 10 rounds with 4 draws and 6 losses. To make matters worse, the team hasn't scored in their last 4 matches. At home, they have gone 5 games without a win, with 3 draws and 2 losses, and they failed to score in 4 of these occasions. Jong Utrecht has the second worst attack in the league with 19 goals scored, and only 11 of those were scored in 11 home matches, making them the worst home attack. However, they have conceded only 10 goals at home, boasting the second best home defense. Their average ball possession is the second lowest in the league at 44.4% per match. Consequently, Jong Utrecht is one of the worst finishers in the competition, averaging 10.2 shots with only 3.8 shots on target, ranking third and second lowest respectively. Defensively, they commit the second most fouls with an average of 12.6 fouls per match. Coach Ivar van Dinteren has no known absences and may even field the same starting lineup in the 4-3-3 formation, although there is a possibility that goalkeeper Kevin Gadellaa, who leads the league in saves with an average of 4.4 saves per game, may return to the starting lineup after being on the bench for the main team in the Eredivisie.

Confirmed Lineup: Andreas Frederik Dithmer, Ivar Jenner, Wessel Kooy, Nazjir Held, Jesse van de Haar, Lynden Edhart, Rickson van Hees, Bjorn Hardley, Gibson Yah, Aurelio Oehlers, S. Andersen.
Coach: A. Plugboer.

Analysis AZ II

The away team is currently in the 12th position of the league, with 32 points won, after 10 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against FC Groningen, by (4‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Roda JC Kerkrade, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 32 conceded; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 16 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches AZ II has a record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 9 points out of 30 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of the last 11 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 24 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Jong AZ is currently leading the pack among the reserve teams in the 2023/2024 Eerste Divisie. This is largely due to their impressive performances at home, where they rank as the 4th best team in the league. However, their away form tells a different story, as they currently sit at the 14th position in the away standings. Despite this, their away matches tend to be quite lively affairs, with goals scored by both teams in Jong AZ's last 8 outings on the road. One area where Jong AZ shines is in their defensive work, boasting the highest number of tackles in the league, averaging 18.3 tackles per match. Coach Leeroy Echteld may face a selection headache, though, as Surinamese winger Jayen Gerold sustained an injury in the last match. If Gerold is sidelined, Deacon van der Klaauw is the likely candidate to fill in.

Confirmed Lineup: Lewis Schouten, Ro-Zangelo Daal, Loek Postma, Dave Kwakman, Rome-Jayden Owusu-Oduro, Kees Smit, Nick Koster, Finn Stam, Maxim Dekker, Gonçalo do Lago Pontes Esteves, R. Kewal.
Coach: M. Vonk.
