Aron Johannsson’s goal-scoring ways continued on Saturday and so too did AZ Alkmaar’s slide in the Eredivisie.
Three days after defeating SC Heerenveen on penalties in a KNVB Cup match in which Johannsson scored twice, AZ Alkmaar saw their winless run in league play extend to six games with a 5-1 defeat to the Super Frisians. Johannsson scored a goal late in the first half to make the scoreline 2-1 and give AZ some hope of a comeback, but Heerenveen responded by netting three consecutive goals to pick up an impressive road victory.
Johannsson’s goal – which came when he chested an aerial ball down and hit a potent half-volley with his right foot after being allowed space – raises his season total in league play to 11. He has 18 across all competitions.
Here is the goal:
