PEC Zwolle moved into the Eredivisie’s top six after a 2-1 win over AZ Alkmaar.

menig ajapecAfter their Europa League campaign ended on Thursday AZ Alkmaar traveled to PEC Zwolle hoping to get their league campaign back on track and after 16 minutes they nearly took the lead with Jeffrey Gouweleeuw striking the post.

However a strong ten minute phase at the end of the first half turned the game completely in the home side’s favour. Firstly on 36 minutes Ouasim Bouy sent Queensy Menig through on goal and the winger calmly slotted past Coutinho. Then in injury time it was 2-0 with Kingsley¬†Ehizibue outwitting the goalkeeper with a shot into the corner.

Stef Nijland missed a glorious opportunity to make it 3-0 shortly after the break but the home side comfortably held on for the victory, despite Maumer Tankovic pulling one back in the dying seconds.

The win moves PEC Zwolle from 9th to temporarily sixth, while AZ Alkmaar remain 11th.
