AZ Alkmaar vs Partizan: Match preview
Black and whites have their last chance to stay in Europe in The Hague, where they will meet for AZ Alkmaar. AZ is forcibly playing in the city where the famous Tribunal is located, as their stadium is badly damaged in a summer storm and is in the process of reconstruction. In the first match, played in Belgrade, it was 2: 2. This result gives the Dutch more chances for the final success.
AZ Alkmaar team news:
Beyond all expectations AZ from Alkmaar is having a fantastic season. They were known to have a quality and young team, but it was thought that the maturation period should last at least another year. In the summer qualifiers AZ was not something persuasive after all.
In the first round, AZ came to Belgrade, and the host was cheered on by about twenty thousand kids from the stands. The black and whites worked out the second match of the penalty, that is the stadium without fans. It was a turbulent match, the guests were leading, then left without a footballer, who was ruled out, and the home side were reversed with two goals.
It looked like the points would remain in Humska, but the speedy Boad drew Miletic and scored a goal. Partizan had many chances in that match, but did not reach the triumph. AZ are in fantastic shape right now. In the last six games they have won as many victories, with an incredible goal difference of 24-0.
Probable lineup: Bizot; Svensson, Hatzidiakos, Wuytens, Wijndal; Midtsjo, De Wit, Koopmeiners; Stengs, Boadu, Idrissi.
Partizan team news:
The opinion that this is the match of the season for black and whites is not far from the truth. If Partizan winters in Europe, and for that they need a victory in the Netherlands, all future activities of the club will be subordinated to the competition, including its engagement in the upcoming winter transition.
Otherwise, it would not be a surprise to make a “cut” for the winter.That is to leave some first team matches and to slowly prepare the team for the summer, new qualifications and attack on the title in the domestic championship.
It is hard to expect anything except that. In any case, Savo Milosevic is doing a good job in Partizan. But to return to our current state. Partizan scored four points in four rounds. Victory in Kazakhstan and draw with Alkmar, with two defeats by United, are immediate effects.
In order to be eligible for the hope of playing again in the spring, they must win both remaining duels. In addition United must not lose against AZ in the last round at Old Trafford.
Probable lineup: Stojkovic; Miletic, Ostojic, S. Pavlovic, Urosevic; Scekic, Zdjelar; Soumah, Natcho, Asano; Sadiq.
AZ Alkmaar is a huge favorite. Still, team from Belgrade has its chances. They play well and they deserved to win the first match. That is why we think that both teams will score in this match.
