AZ Alkmaar vs. PSV Eindhoven Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

In what promises to be an enthralling Eredivisie encounter, PSV Eindhoven seeks to continue their relentless form as they face AZ Alkmaar on Sunday, aiming for their 16th consecutive league victory.

Match Preview

PSV Eindhoven has been a dominating force in the Eredivisie, boasting an impressive 15-match winning streak.

While their offensive output has slightly dipped recently, their defensive resilience remains remarkable, conceding only six times during this prolific run.

Despite a Champions League dead-rubber against Arsenal resulting in a 1-1 draw, PSV showcased their prowess, extending their unbeaten streak to 16 games across all competitions since their defeat to Arsenal in the reverse fixture.

On the other hand, AZ Alkmaar suffered an early exit from the Europa Conference League, a disappointing 2-0 loss to Legia Warsaw dampening their European ambitions.

Manager Pascal Jansen’s side aims to regain momentum after a turbulent run in their domestic and European fixtures.

With only three wins in their last ten games across all competitions, AZ faces a challenging encounter against the formidable PSV.

However, their sturdy defense, conceding merely 10 goals in 15 Eredivisie games, could pose a challenge to PSV’s attacking prowess.
