Form, Standings, Stats

Last Game: Legia 2-0 Zrinjski Mostar
Thursday, November 9 at 5.45pm in Europa Conference League

We said: AZ Alkmaar 3-1 Zrinjski Mostar

With both teams' places in the Europa Conference League hanging by a thread, we expect to see a fiercely-contested encounter play out in Alkmaar on Thursday, but the hosts are clear favourites to win. Of course, a draw between Aston Villa and Legia Warsaw in Birmingham later in the evening would eliminate both teams, but we expect AZ to give themselves a chance of remaining in the competition by dispatching Zrinjski.
