BK Hacken News & Form

HackenThe Wasps started their European journey in the second qualifying round, while they are currently sitting at the 5th spot of the Swedish Allsvenskan with 30 points out of 17 games and a 24:14 goal difference. Ten of their 17 domestic games had fewer than three goals in the total.

Hacken won six of its eight home games in Allsvenskan along with a couple of losses, scoring 13 goals in the process and allowing just four in a return. Striker Alexander Jeremejeff is leading the Wasps with seven goals and five assists in 16 apps this season, while winger Paulinho added seven goals and a couple of assists.

AZ Alkmaar News & Form

AZ-AlkmaarThe Cheeseheads played their first game of the season against Hacken which could be an excuse for poor performance. The Dutch Eredivisie starts next weekend, so they will have to regroup and try to improve in the second leg in Gothenburg.

AZ lost playmaker Adam Maher who joined FC Utrecht this summer on a free transfer. However, the Cheeseheads found the replacement in Jordy Clasie who arrived from Southampton on a free transfer. The manager Arne Slot can count on all his players, so we can expect the best eleven on the field led by Guus Til and Oussama Idrissi who combined for 29 goals last season.

Hacken vs AZ Head to Head

Hacken and AZ met each other for the first time last Thursday. The Cheeseheads kept the ball in possession for 56% of the time and took 12 shots on goal, allowing just four in a return. Still, it wasn’t enough to break the deadlock, while Hacken also blew a couple of excellent scoring opportunities.

Betting Odds and Predictions: Hacken v Alkmaar

The bookmakers still consider AZ as a firm favourite to reach the next round, and you can take the Dutch side at 1/2 odds to qualify with Bet365, while Hacken is set at 6/4 odds on the same platform. AZ is a slight 6/4 favourite to win the second leg with Ladbrokes. Hacken is set at 7/4 odds to win this match with BetVictor, and a draw pays 23/10 with William Hill.

The bookies expect to see at least a couple of goals in the total, and Bet365 offers 9/10 odds on both over and under 2.5 goals. Likewise, Betway offers 8/11 odds on both teams to find the back of the net.

Our BK Hacken vs AZ Alkmaar Betting Tip

This should be a very interesting game between two teams who are at a similar level. AZ is a slight favourite, but the visitors possess a lot of young and inexperienced players which could be a problem in games like this one.

The clash could easily go either way, and I would avoid taking the side bet. Instead, I suggest you go with both teams to score at 8/11 odds with Betway. Hacken conceded just four goals in eight home games this season, but AZ prefers an attacking approach, so I think they will find a way to score. On the other side, Hacken should also score in front of the home fans. The Wasps netted in eight straight outings at home.
