AZ to Win with Handicap (-1)
Neither of these two teams is in a great form at the moment, but AZ Alkmaar is clearly the better team on paper. That being said, Jablonec did win their first match in the Europa Conference League groups against Cluj, while AZ only managed to draw against Randers. Still, the last match played by AZ was a 5-0 win over Go Ahead Eagles, which makes us think that they might be starting to get in form. So, our prediction is for AZ to win this match by two goals or more.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
The last five matches played by AZ have gone over 2.5 total goals, four of them even going over 3.5 total goals. However, the last five games played by Jablonec have gone under 2.5 total goals. Still, with AZ being the host, we expect them to impose their style of play, which involves offensive approach and a lot of goals scored, so our next prediction is for this game to go over 2.5 total goals.
Jesper Karlsson to Score at Any Time
The top scorer for AZ this season is Jesper Karlsson, who managed to find the opponent's net three times in Eredivisie so far. Last season the Swedish winger scored eleven goals for AZ Alkmaar in the league, but he only scored one goal in Europa League. Still, given his current form, he is our top pick to score against Jablonec.

AZ vs Jablonec preview: A very interesting matchup
Here are the latest news about the teams and their form ahead of this game:
The team from Alkmaar didn't start the new season well since they lost four of their first six matches in the Dutch Eredivisie, while the other two they managed to win. This puts them in the 12th spot in the standings at the moment, so the team has to do much better if they want to repeat the result of last season. Meanwhile, AZ drew in the first round of the Europa Conference League against Randers. Poku and Helmer are injured and they will miss the upcoming match.
Like their next opponent, Jablonec also didn't have the best start of the season. After the first nine rounds in the Czech league, the team is tenth in the standings with two wins, three draws, and four losses. However, Jablonec beat Cluj at home in the first round of the Europa Conference League groups, so they go to Alkmaar in a positive mood. Also, they only have one player, Stepanek, on their injury list at the moment.
