AZ Alkmaar Form


AZ Alkmaar have been playing plenty of games this season after a tough UEFA Europa League campaign. They finished third behind Napoli and Real Sociedad in Group E but narrowly missed out on the knockout stages.

Manager Arne Slot was sensationally sacked after a 1-1 draw in Naples. It emerged he had confirmed to take over at Feyenoord next season, the club didn’t hesitate and hired assistant manager Pascal Jansen until the end of the season.

Jansen’s first match in charge was a tough 2-1 home defeat to Groningen. Fredrik Midtsjø was sent off in the 57th minute and Bruno Martins Indi followed in the 85th minute. 

AZ lost 2-1 at Croatian club Rijeka that ended their Europa League campaign. A win would have sent them through, but Jesper Karlsson’s 80th minute red card hindered their chances and they conceded in the 92nd minute.

AZ Alkmaar bounced back in the Eredivisie with a 3-1 win at Twente. Teun Koopmeiners scored two goals either side of Yukinari Sugawara.

Alkmaar’s last match was a 5-3 home win against Willem II. They were 2-0 down but Koopmeiners score two more with Calvin Stengs, Fredrik Midtsjø and Jesper Karlsson completing the turnaround.

Thomas Letsch’s side drew 1-1 at home against Heerenveen after Oussama Darfalou opened the scoring. Vitesse then advanced in the KNVB Cup after a 2-0 win at Willem II.

Vitesse’s last match was a 1-0 home win against Feyenoord. They allowed the visitors 24 shots, one of which hit the woodwork and were fortunate to keep a clean sheet.
