AZ Alkmaar won 3-0 against Waalwijk, and after five draws in a row, got their first win of the season in the Eredivisie, which completed its sixth matchday this weekend.
A win that comes at the ideal time: it will give them strength against Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
AZ Alkmaar finally smile. The club has finally managed to win again in the league.
The Dutch side, who face Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Sunday, got the game on track after five minutes against an opponent threatened by the relegation zone. It was Calvin Stengs who made the most of, first touch, a far pass from Teun Koopmeiners, who in the 67th minute missed a penalty.
The second goal came with a quarter of an hour to go when the Icelandic Albert Gudmundsson scored, while he also scored in added time.
Arne Slot’s men are mid-table in the Eredivisie, which Ajax dominate.
