The 2nd legs of the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League continue on Thursday night with Swedish side, Hacken, taking on Dutch outfit, AZ Alkmaar, as the betting tips continue at the Bravida Arena.

Hacken Prediction – Can Hacken make most of home turf?

After last week’s 0-0 draw away at the AFAS Stadion, Hacken will now return to their home surroundings for this 2nd leg decider.

Although recent results have produced mixed returns for Hacken, the hosts will nevertheless be confident that they can edge a result here.

Recent wins against Orebro and GIF Sundsvall, both in the Swedish Allsvenskan, have been offset by league defeats to Norrkoping and Djurgarden.

However on home turf at their Bravida Arena, Hacken have found some decent form as they’ve racked up 3 wins from their last 4 matches.

A Svenska cup win over AFC Eskilstuna was followed by back-to-back Allsvenskan wins against Hammarby and Orebro respectively.

Switch to results at home in the Europa League though and we have a slightly different story; just 4 wins out of their last 9 home ties suggest we look at another angle.

And the angle is to look at the goals market – 8 of Hacken’s 11 home ties in the Europa League have resulted in both teams scoring.

Forwards Jeremejeff (7 goals) and Paulinho (6 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.

AZ Alkmaar Prediction – Can AZ nick a win in Sweden?

This 2nd leg is still nicely poised as the scores remained level after 90 minutes in last week’s 1st leg 0-0 draw in Holland.

However, AZ Alkmaar could be forgiven for feeling they’ve missed out on exploiting home advantage in last week’s stalemate.

In particular, the visitors have now gone 4 matches without a win in all competitions following 3 defeats and a draw.

Club friendly defeats to Telstar, Gent and Beerschot-Wilrijk along with last week’s draw against tonight’s opponents, Hacken, mean the visitors need a result here.

Results away from home have also been poor for AZ as the visitors have now endured a 9-match sequence without a win on their travels.

This poor sequence includes 6 defeats, so we need to turn to another angle where AZ Alkmaar are concerned when away from home.

6 of AZ’s last 9 matches overall away from home have seen both teams score, and with them now on the back foot, this trend could continue here.

In addition, 7 of AZ Alkmaar’s 12 away ties in the Europa League have also seen both teams score.

 

Key-Facts – Hacken v AZ Alkmaar

  • 8 of Hacken’s 11 home ties in the Europa League have seen both teams score
  • 6 of AZ’s last 9 matches overall away from home have seen both teams score
  • 7 of AZ Alkmaar’s 12 away ties in the Europa League have seen both teams score

 

Betting Tips Verdict

This match is evenly poised but both teams are capable of scoring here in what could be a score-draw.
