Our match prediction:
High-flying AZ Alkmaar will be aiming to extend their impressive winning run when they take on PAS Giannina in the Europa League third qualifying round, return leg. The Eredivisie outfit recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Greek outfit in the first leg, but their job is half done. AZ Alkmaar are eyeing their tenth consecutive win and considering that the team managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their previous six games, we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s football match at Stadio Apostolos Nikolaidis. PAS Giannina recorded a 3-0 win over Odd of Norway in their previous home game in the process, but considering that AZ Alkmaar look unstoppable at the moment, home win should not be considered this time out. Wout Weghorst, who scored 14 goals for Heracles last season, will be the man to watch in the away side.
