West Ham vs AZ Alkmaar 11.05.2023
West Ham had a successful entrance into their 2nd semifinals after managing to bounce back from Gent’s opening goal in the 2nd leg of the quarter-finals while Declan Rice scored the remarkable goal of the season. It was a 5-2 win in aggregate that scheduled their encounter with AZ Alkmaar in this week’s semis. The Hammers has managed to maintain a consistent form in the conference league contrary to EPL fixtures and perhaps this depicts a clear objective of David Moyes for this season in European competitions.
The Dutchmen did not have a clear passage to the semis as they were taken out of their comfort zone that ended with a dramatic penalty kick shootout after winding up their 2nd leg with a 2-2 tie in aggregate. Since then, they have maintained a very disciplined backline as they extended their 4th undefeated game in the recent match with 4 clean sheets. They never met West Ham before hence we anticipate them to be more focused on extending their clean fortress form as they build their attacks to skip unnecessary fallout on the road.
It is expected to be a very tight first half but eventually, West Ham could be the likely winner of this game in London. We are predicting a first-half draw while West Ham keeps the first-leg win.
