Alkmar is in a great form right now. They are first placed in Eredivisie and they have big hopes for the title. They have won their last 3 games in the championship scoring 7 goals and conceding only 1 in this 3 games. They have a good offensive with 21 goals but not such a good defensive with 17 goals conceded. The good point for tonight is that the game is at Alkmar and at home they conceded only 5 goals from the total of 17. Also Alkmar is undefeated at home in all competitions this season. In UEL group Alkmar has 5 point and it’s second placed with 3 points on front of Shaktar K. and with a win tonight the qualification for the 32nd would be solved.
Shaktar K. is a big surprise. No one expected them to reach this part of an European competition but yet here they are. Shaktar is not doing well in the domestic league, they are fourth placed and they have lost their last 3 games. Somehow they have managed to make a draw in the game from 2 weeks ago against Alkmar. Their big advantage when they are playing at home is their pitch. They have some sort of fake pitch which is not made fully from grass. In Europe road games they have showed that they have serious problems and I think that they won’t be able to handle Alkmar.
I think that Alkmar will have no problems tonight and will win with 1-2 goals difference. The experience, value of the players and the form will decide the game in Alkmar’s favor. Shaktar has showed their problems in the away games and I think that they will have big problems in a country like Netherland. Also Alkmar showed that they are a good team at home.
