BongdaPlus provides updates on the odds, tips, predictions and analysis of the AZ Alkmaar vs Anderlecht match in the second leg of the Conference League quarter-finals at 23:45 on April 20.
Analysis of the form of AZ Alkmaar vs Anderlecht:
In the Conference League round of 16, AZ Alkmaar beat Serie A powerhouse Lazio with a total score of 4-2. However, this inflated the evaluation of AZ Alkmaar's strength, while in reality Lazio did not take the competition seriously. Before crushing weak opponent Fortuna Sittard 3-0 in the national championship over the weekend, AZ Alkmaar had not won in 4 consecutive matches (lost 3, drew 1), and lost all four games with Asian handicap betting.

Anderlecht has long ceased to be a force in the Belgian national championship, let alone the European stage. But they are doing very well in the Conference League this season. Compared to AZ Alkmaar's win over Lazio, Anderlecht's achievement in eliminating Villarreal deserves more respect because the Yellow Submarine takes this third-tier European competition seriously. Anderlecht also has decent away form, winning 3 out of their last 4 away matches.
In terms of their European Cup history, Anderlecht's record against Dutch teams is 4 wins, 1 draw, and 3 losses. This is definitely an impressive number for a team like Anderlecht. Therefore, it will be difficult for AZ Alkmaar to beat Anderlecht, let alone win with a minimum of 3 goals to reverse the situation.

Latest squad information for AZ Alkmaar vs Anderlecht:
AZ Alkmaar will be without the service of Jesper Karlsson, who suffered an injury at the beginning of this month. Karlsson's absence is a huge loss for AZ Alkmaar. The Swedish winger has scored 10 goals and contributed 8 assists in 29 official matches this season.
Anderlecht will miss the service of two midfielders, Adrien Trebel and Yari Verschaeren, for health reasons. But in reality, they do not have a big role in terms of expertise. Anderlecht can rely on Islam Slimani, a 34-year-old striker who once played for Leicester in the Champions League, and is currently in excellent form. Since joining Anderlecht at the beginning of this year, Slimani has scored 8 goals in 14 official matches.
Expected lineups for AZ Alkmaar vs Anderlecht:
AZ Alkmaar: Ryan; Sugawara, Beukema, Chatzidiakos, Kerkez; Clasie, Mijnans, Reijnders; Odgaard, Pavlidis, Van Brederode.
