In a rematch of their previous encounter on October 26, where Aston Villa thumped AZ Alkmaar 4-1, the stage was set for another thrilling showdown between the two sides. Leon Bailey, Youri Tielemans, Ollie Watkins, and John McGinn had been on the scoresheet for Unai Emery’s Villa, while Ibrahim Sadiq managed a solitary consolation goal for the Dutch team in the 65th minute.
Aston Villa was soaring high in the early stages of the new campaign, boasting an impressive series of victories. However, they were brought back down to earth by Nottingham Forest this Sunday. Before their clash with Forest, Villa had secured three successive wins, with a remarkable combined scoreline of 11-3 against West Ham, AZ Alkmaar, and Luton Town.
The match against Forest didn’t go as planned for Villa, as Ola Aina gave Forest an early lead in the fifth minute. Orel Mangala extended Forest’s advantage just two minutes into the second half, resulting in a frustrating loss for Villa.
Currently sitting second in Group E, Aston Villa is still well on track to progress to the knockout stages if they can manage a double victory against AZ Alkmaar in their upcoming fixture.
On the other hand, AZ Alkmaar had its share of ups and downs in Group E. They initially squandered a three-goal advantage in their group opener against Zrinjski, ultimately losing the game 4-3 in a thrilling contest. However, they quickly rebounded with a win over Legia Warsaw in their subsequent Conference League outing. Nonetheless, their recent 4-1 loss to Aston Villa left them three points short of the second-place spot in Group E.
AZ Alkmaar’s domestic form hasn’t been too shabby, with eight wins in their first ten Eredivisie matches this season and an average of over 2.5 goals per game. They were held to a 1-1 draw by Excelsior in their most recent league match, as Cisse Sandra spoiled their party with a late equalizer in stoppage time.
As Aston Villa prepares to host AZ Alkmaar for the first time in their history, the clash promises to be an exciting encounter, with both teams seeking to assert their dominance in Group E. Villa’s remarkable goal-scoring form in recent matches, coupled with their 12-game winning streak at home in the Premier League, sets the stage for an intriguing showdown. AZ’s strong domestic performance in Eredivisie this season showcases their potential as they aim to recover from their earlier loss to Villa and secure a better standing in the group.
