BRANN vs AZ ALKMAAR – BETTING PICK
EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE
We have loads of data on these two teams, albeit a crossover in European Leagues makes it an extra challenge. Nevertheless, we believe that we will always finish ahead of the bookmaker in such competitions, and we have long proven that theory.
Despite a total of 16 shots on target, the first leg ended in a 1-1 draw. Based on what we watched and the stats from the game, a draw was the right outcome.
BADLY DEPLETED SQUAD
One problem for the visitors is a high number of missing players. While Pascal Jansen has a 29-man squad, 10 of those are side-lined with injuries.
For the record, the Cheeseheads won’t have skipper Bruno Martins Indi available. Also, Jordy Classie, Tiago Dantas, Brederode, Wouter Goes, Meet De Wit, Mexx Meerdink, Same Westerveld, Lewis Schouten and Owes-Oduro are out.
Incidentally, none of those players were involved in the first leg, or indeed the last league win. With few options available, Jansen’s team picks itself.
AZ Alkmaar started the league campaign with two wins, and they were allowed to skip the weekend fixture to prepare for the challenge ahead. However, while it’s so far so good for the visitors, we doubt the club’s longevity!
With all due respect, the owners of AZ cashed in a whopping €47 million from player transactions. With just 19 players available, the visitors will be hoping to make it past the up-and-coming Internationals!
STRONG WHEN PLAYING AT HOME
As for Brann, Erik Horneland will be without three of his 23-man squad. While that gives the host just one more player than their opponent, it’s a situation that they are used to!
For a season-promoted club, SKB has been in fantastic league form. Furthermore, they knocked Portuguese outfit Arouca out of this competition, and they managed that by winning the home fixture 3-1.
By the way, the fazit of the club from Bergen is how good they are at home. In the last round of the League, Aalesund were sent packing 5-1.
DECISION TIME IN BERGEN
With plenty in their favor and confidence taken from the first leg, Brann can defy the odds and reach the next round.
