  • Almere City have played more matches over 2,5 goals away than home.

Jong AZ have less rest than Almere City in this fixture, as the hosts were involved in a Eerste Divisie game only four days ago. That game was an away game at FC Den Bosch, so at least Jong are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!

Jong AZ form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Eerste Divisie this season. Jong AZ, who have the fewest clean sheets (0) at home in Eerste Divisie, have only managed 1 win, 3 draws and 5 losses from their games here at AFAS Trainingscomplex. With seven home Eerste Divisie games in a row without a win, the Jong fans could feel they are not getting value for their money. It remains to be seen whether this unfortunate streak, which started after the Graafschap game long ago, can be stopped today.

A good away victory last time out for Jong, who won 2-1 against FC Den Bosch (placed 19th). Ahead of that match, Jong AZ lost 0-1 at home to Roda JC Kerkrade.

A decent goal production from Jong in their home games so far, with 16 goals from 9 league matches. As for conceded goals, Jong's unpleasant statistic is 24 goals surrendered.
