Match corresponding to the 5th day of the group stage of the Europa League in which they will meet in the AFAS Stadion, AZ Alkmaar and Partizán. A cool day with temperatures around 9ºC, rain and wind is expected for Thursday in Alkmaar.
AZ Alkmaar :
After 2 wins and 2 draws, Az Alkmaar is 2nd in group L after the firm steps of Manchester United. The Dutch team also has this game, which will play on the last day at Old Trafford. This match is really important for AZ, since it is very likely that in the next one he cannot beat the leader, and better take the duties done to Old Trafford. In any case, it is worth it with a draw to ensure the classification, although it would be rare for them to speculate around that circumstance since they would run the risk of ending up losing for a game too prudent.
The Dutchman Myron Boadú with 4 goals is the most fit player of the team in this group stage, in which they add 13 goals thanks especially to the 11 goals scored at Astana.
In the Eredivisie they have better results with 4 consecutive victories and in second position behind Ajax.
The Partisan of Belgrade has a difficult time to move on to the next phase in the Europa League but not impossible. It is imperative that you win this game, and on the last day improve against Astana the result that AZ takes against Manchester United. The second seems affordable, but winning AZ as a visitor would be a feat.
In the Serbian Super League they are 4th, and they try to keep up with the pace set by the Red Star. With 2 goals each, the players Umar Sadiq and Bibras Natxo are the authors of the Partizan goals in the group stage.
