According to Voetbal International, AZ Alkmaar are still hoping to claim the main ticket for the Champions League group stages.

AZ and Ajax were on the same number of points when the season was ended, with Ajax in first place due to goal difference, which is the main divider in the Eredivisie.

However, AZ still hopes to claim the automatic Champions League that comes with finishing first. They believe that goal difference is not a good enough measure to decide, especially since they defeated Ajax home and away.

According to VI, AZ have contacted UEFA and the KNVB to discuss this. Although, UEFA have already stated before that each nation can decide how to end their competition ends themselves.
