AZ has a 4-match winning streak, except for the win against Rome; the future hosts were stronger than three teams in the Netherlands' championship match against Cambuur, Vitesse, and Groningen. After 25 rounds, AZ is in third position in the national championship, behind Feyenoord and Ajax. In general, AZ still has a chance even for the national championship title; the gap between the leader from Rotterdam is five points. AZ has the sixth home statistic in the division, +7=4-1, 26:15 goal difference. AZ leads in Group E, ahead of Dnipro 1, Apollon, and Vaduz.
Lazio had a hard time last round of the Conference League, knocking out the Romanian Cluj. For the first time in a long time, Lazio is seriously competing for the final place in the top 4 of Serie A. The Eagles are in third place, two points ahead of Roma. It is obvious that the Roman derby is a priority for the Eagles and not the match of the Conference League. In the Italian championship, Lazio has the second statistic on the road, 25 points in 13 games.
Expert Betting Tips
The first match between AZ and Lazio turned out to be a top match, but in general, Eagles in recent times, the team in away games is a draw, and the seven last matches away with the Rome team ended through ТU (2.5). We wouldn't be surprised if this trend continues. The Conference League may not be a burden for Lazio, but not a priority, given that the Eagles successfully fight for the top 4 of Serie A, and the Romans have a capital derby in a few days. AZ also has no sense of taking risks, the Dutch have the advantage after the away game, and they are pretty happy with a draw, 0:0, 1:1. Generally, we will not be surprised if the meeting ends in a 1:1 draw.
