AZ moved level on points with Ajax at the top of the Eredivisie table after winning 2-0 at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

It was a true captain's performance from Teun Koopmeiners as he led his side to the win with a dominating performance at the back and a contribution to the second goal.

At the back, he won the majority of his duels (3/5), 100% of his tackles (2/2), as well as making three ball recoveries, three interceptions, and a huge 14 clearances which was nearly double that of the player with the second highest amount in the Eredivisie this weekend.

Throughout the course of the game he sent 23 long balls forward and it was through one of these - a superb, flighted diagonal which nearly went the full length of the pitch - which led to the second goal as it went up and over the Ajax defence for Oussama Idrissi to score.
