AZ Alkmaar sends Ajax defeat
Ajax is already running up against the first defeat on the second day of the season.
The champion was beaten 3-2 by AZ Alkmaar, which thus took revenge for the defeat last month in the match for the Johan Cruijff Shield.
When Ajax drew 3-2 after extra time to win.
Breakpoint in the game was a minor infringement of Ricardo van Rhijn in the penalty area Nick Viergever.
Referee Bas Nijhuis rebuked Van Rhijn with red, then Aron Johannsson scored from the penalty awarded 2-2. With a man made lake Viktor Elm, a fifteen minutes still 3-2.
AZ was a good start to the game and got a header from Elm the first chance of a goal. However, it was Ajax that opened the scoring.
Christian Eriksen surprised goalkeeper Esteban with a free kick from distance.
AZ was just beaten out of the field, but made just before half time was right.
Kenneth Vermeer punched the ball from a corner at the feet of Roy Beerens, who gratefully benefited.
Vermeer remained in the rest sick back in the locker room and was replaced by Jasper Cillessen.
In the second half AZ was initially unrecognizable and could combine Ajax to your heart. 1-2 of Siem de Jong after a cross from Bojan Krkic was a logical consequence.
However, the violation of Van Rhijn, who just pulled the shirt Viergever, turned the match on its head.
The winning goal was one of AZ for framing.
Maarten Martens gave a measured cross on Elm, who accomplished the ball into the far corner. In the final phase AZ had opportunities to treat. Ajax on a larger defeat
For Ajax is the first defeat in the Premier League in more than six months time. In January, the team of coach Frank de Boer also went 3-2 against Vitesse slicing.
