Team News: AZ
Dani de Wit (Ankle Injury), Jonas Svensson (Leg Injury) and Jeremy Helmer (Leg Injury) will be missing for AZ gaffer Pascal Jansen.
Team News: Den Haag
In an otherwise healthy group, there’s just a single fitness issue for the Den Haag manager Ruud Brood to contend with. Ilay Elmkies (Corona virus) misses out for this game.
When taking all factors into account, AZ will probably dominate possession and create several successful chances.
At the other end, Den Haag will not find it easy getting on the scoresheet although we do think that they will probably end up scoring here as well.
We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for AZ at the end of this one.
