AZ Alkmaar, friend of Football Impact, is currently struggling for the title of the first division of Dutch football. The team is second, with only 2 losses in the entire championship.
Arne Slot’s men are only behind Ajax, which leads them by 3 points. The goals of Oussama Idrissi and Myron Boadu are helping the team remain among the greatest in the top category of Dutch football.
The team is one of the most goals scoring in the entire championship, but if it stands out for something, it is because it is the one which receives less goals of all. This gives them a defensive solidity that is the key to their good moment.
Tomorrow the team will have a difficult duel, against Feyenoord (another friend of Football Impact), which is third. It is an important game not to lose stream and keep fighting for the championship.
