PSV vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction and Betting Tips | November 12, 2022

AZ Alkmaar v PSV Eindhoven - Dutch Eredivisie
PSV and AZ will square off in the Eredivisie on Saturday.

League leaders PSV will entertain AZ Alkmaar at the Phillips Stadion in their final Eredivisie game of the year on Saturday (November 12).

The hosts are on a four-game winning run across competitions and have won their last two league games. PSV won at their rivals and reigning champions Ajax last Sunday. That helped them pip the Amsterdam-based team to pole position in the standings.

Luuk de Jong and Erick Gutierrez gave PSV a two-goal lead before substitute Lorenzo Lucca scored a consolation goal for Ajax. In-form winger Cody Gakpo picked up his 12th assist of the campaign in the win.

AZ, meanwhile, have suffered three defeats in their last four league games. That has seen them drop to fifth place in the standings, but they trail PSV by just four points. After a 2-1 win over Volendam a fortnight ago, AZ fell to a 3-1 loss at RKC Waalwijk last Sunday.
