AZ wins first match against FortunaPublished on 05 augustus 19, 15:39
On Sunday AZ easily won over Fortuna Sittard. In the AFAS Stadium the final score was 4-0 for the team of Arne Slot. The win over Fortuna Sittard strengthens the first position of AZ in the Eredivisie.
AZ was the dominant team in Alkmaar, but that did not result in a goal before the break.
In the 12th minute, the supporters of both teams made a tribute to Fernando Ricksen. Ricksen played in the past for AZ and Fortuna Sittard and has motor neurone disease.
After a first half without goals, Vlaar opened the score. A few minutes later, Idrissi made the second goal for AZ. Again 4 minutes later, Boadu scored the next goal. Sugawara, who made his Eredivisie-debut, scored the final goal in the 83th minute: 4-0.
