AZ Alkmaar vs Tuzla City Preview

AZ Alkmaar are joining the Europa Conference League in the second qualifying round. The Dutch side have recruited six new players thus far as they lay the groundwork for their campaign. However, they will miss the services of Japanese star Yukinari Sugawara who recently underwent knee surgery.

Kaaskoppen are not new to UEFA club competitions. They have been Europa League runners-up once, semi-finalists once and quarterfinalists three times. They are among the teams pundits have picked to reach the final. But they need to clear their way in the first place by defeating Tuzla City.

Tuzla City have had a successful campaign in the Bosnia and Herzegovina top flight, finishing as runners-up. They made their first appearance in the Europa Conference League first qualifying round earlier this month, crushing S.P. Tre Penne 8-0 on aggregate.

The results may not be sufficient to form an opinion about their strengths and capabilities. However, it will likely boost their confidence ahead of the AZ Alkmaar clash. The visitors are led by Semir Smajlagiฤ‡ and Salko Nargalic, who could embarrass the hosts.
