AZ reached the last 16 of the Europa Conference League last season. They host Dundee United in the second leg of this third qualifying round tie and trail 1-0. A second half goal gave the Scottish side that slender advantage. The winners of this tie will be one of the seeded teams in Group 4 of the play-off round. AZ played five home games in the inaugural Europa Conference League winning four of them and drawing with Bodo/Glimt. This season has already seen them host Tuzla City and a first half penalty saw them win that tie. They have made a good start to the new Dutch Eredvisie season with a 2-0 home win over Go Ahead Eagles. Only one of their last nine competitive home games has been lost.
Dundee United had a lot of success in European football in the 1980s. They reached a European Cup semi-fnal and a UEFA Cup final. However, those are the golden days and this season sees them in European football for the first time since the 2012./13 season. They finished fourth in the Scottish Premiership last season to qualify for the Europa Conference League. Dundee United did well to win the first leg but are ninth in the Scottish Premiership with just one point from their two games. Only one of their last seven competitive away games has been won. Back AZ to get the home victory.
