Willem II took advantage of this marginally simpler cup draw to match the final word’s victory and hit the semi-final. They’ll confront undoubtedly the most serious barrier yet at this point and moving all of the way into the closing will probably be a really large challenge for the group headed by Adrie Koster.
The resistance stems from the likes of past year runners-up AZ Alkmaar. The hosts will attempt to build their victory on the shocking 2-1 success on the Cheeseheads when teams met each other at the last match of their prior Eredivisie Matchday on Sunday. Willem II thus ended AZ’s splendid six-win series in all competitions.
Interestingly, this triumph came literally from nowhere since it followed three consecutive league defeats. Tricolores were super simple to break down permitting a few targets in each of match throughout the previous three-loss run.

AZ Alkmaar vs Willem II Prediction
Willem’s form was so inconsistent during the season. They sit 10th from the Eredivisie ladder and they won three of eleven house excursions in the league this period. But, among those wins came only four days past against AZ Alkmaar that is the reason why you need to be cautious with the bets backing the off win in 1.66 here.
We all do believe AZ can make it into the closing as cup is the sole way for a possible trophy this year. They sit 4th in the league ladder and can not challenge the top-two finish and a spot in the Champions league second semester.
Additionally, we must admire AZ’s incredible charm of type using six successive clean sheet wins in all competitions before last weekend’s collapse in Tilburg. The people have the standard and motivation that ought to be sufficient for the success here.
