Both sides have been in good form of late as the visitors come into this one having not lost any of their last four league matches, while AZ have won each of their last three games.
After suffering two consecutive league defeats in the last week of January, AZ Alkmaar have responded by picking up nine points from a possible nine, scoring eight goals and conceding just two.
Hakon Evjen made the most of what was only his third-ever start for the club as he restored the Cheeseheads' lead 10 minutes after the restart with his first Eredivisie goal.
Sunday's hosts are now up to third on the log courtesy of that win, four points behind second-placed PSV Eindhoven, who they will face in the coming month.
In the meantime, their main task is to stay as close as possible to PSV ahead of their meeting, and a win this weekend would be a step in the right direction.
Feyenoord were held to a 0-0 draw by Groningen in their rescheduled meeting on Wednesday at the Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium.
The deadlock was their second in the space of three days following a 2-2 stalemate against FC Twente, where they were lucky to come away with a point.
Those dropped points have seen Dick Advocaat's men remain in fourth place, but a win on Sunday takes them level on points with AZ, and also ahead of them on goal difference.
However, De Stadionclub were beaten 3-2 in last month's reverse fixture, and they will be keen to exact revenge on AZ this time around.

Feyenoord's Joao Teixeira has been sidelined for the past six weeks with a calf injury, but he is close to being available for selection once again.
