Az Alkmaar is going through some highs and lows in the current season of the Eridivisie but more recently it is becoming evident the lack of consistency which the team of Martin Haar and Dick Advocaat are going through. The latest 7 matches has seen them claiming 3 triumphs as they are starting to fall behind in the league due to the number of points being dropped.
In one week, Alkmaar managed to overcome a club located at the top of the league (Vitesse) but the next match saw them suffering a 2-1 defeat against a team which is struggling on the bottom section of the league (Go Ahead Eagles)
The surprising victory against Vitesse has now put in danger the chances of them securing the league title of this season and allowed Ajax on clearing the way at the top of the league with 54 points with their nearest rivals, FX Twente having only 48 points.
Even with the recent number of negative results, Alkmaar still are enjoying a fairly better season than the previous one which saw them ending the last campaign at the 10th spot while now they are located at the 7th position.
Ajax got their way to the top of the Eridivisie league after scoring 4 goals past Alkmaar in a match that saw both teams going head to head at the Amsterdam Arena and Ajax got ahead in the scoreboard since the 4th minute of the game when Siem de Jong gave his team the early lead.
Goals from Lerin Duarte and Ricardo Kishna extended the lead of Ajax to 4 goals on an encounter that the home home side had dominated since the opening few matches of the encounter and Alkmaar Zaanstreek could do little to deny them the victory.
