AZ Alkmaar will host Vaduz at the AFAS Stadion in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.

The hosts are coming off a 1-1 draw against Twente at the same ground in Eredivisie action on Sunday. Mafred Ugalde equalised with virtually his first touch of the game after coming on to cancel out Jens Odgaard's 54th-minute opener for Alkmaar.

Before that, AZ claimed maximum points with a 1-0 victory at Ukranian side Dnipro in their Europa League Group E opener last week. The victory propelled them to the summit of the standings.

The Leichstentein club also shared the spoils in a goalless draw against Cypriot side Apollon in their Conference League opener last week.
