Our Best Betting Tips Excelsior vs AZ Alkmaar
The two teams have their championship made and soon will each play two-way playoffs – Excelsior to try to escape relegation and AZ to reach the next edition of the Europa League.
I do not believe that both coaches approach this game like any other, combining this with the fact that AZ is not exactly one of the most suffering teams in the championship, I believe it is a game for, unlike the usual in the Netherlands, few situations of goal.
The teams are going to be thinking about the challenges they will have soon and will hardly fight at the top for their victory in this last round of the regular season.
