AZ also beats OFI Crete after Panathinaikos
6.05 pm: AZ also won the second match against a Greek opponent in preparation for the new football season. Three days after the victory over Panathinaikos (3-0), the team of trainer Pascal Jansen sidelined Crete 2-0 in Dirkshorn OFI in North Holland on Wednesday.
Albert Gudmunsson opened the scoring in the 8th minute. In the 58th minute, substitute Jorn Berkhout scored the second goal against last season’s number 13 in Greece.
At AZ, internationals Teun Koopmeiners, Owen Wijndal and Marco Bizot did not participate. The trio was not in the competition selection, but they were present in Dirkshorn as a spectator. Koopmeiners, Wijndal and Bizot hope to make a transfer this summer, following Calvin Stengs, who recently made the switch to OGC Nice.
The Dutch Jonathan de Guzman, Mike van Duinen and Luc Castaignos had a base place at OFI Crete. Goalkeeper Boy Waterman did not participate.
AZ previously won in the preparation of NEC (4-1) and TOP Oss (3-0), drew against Anderlecht (1-1) and Racing Genk (1-1) and lost to RB Leipzig (1-0). The Alkmaarders will play at home against Real Sociedad on Saturday and against Torino on Sunday 8 August. AZ will start the competition on Saturday 14 August with an away match against RKC Waalwijk. Thursday, August 19 and Thursday, August 26, the play-offs of the Europa League for the North Hollanders are on the program.
De Plus disabled due to viral infection
3:01 pm: The Belgian cyclist Laurens De Plus has been eliminated for the time being. The 25-year-old Ineos-Grenadiers driver has been hit by a viral infection. He therefore has to take a break.
De Plus hardly played in 2020 due to injuries. At the end of last year he exchanged Jumbo-Visma for his current team. This cycling season did not go much better for him. He only competed in the Tour de Provence, Paris-Nice, the GP Miguel Indurain and the Tour of the Basque Country. After that, De Plus turned out to be overtrained and he was not selected for the Tour de France.
“The team has worked hard together with Laurens to make a diagnosis,” says Ineos-Grenadiers. “Now a period of mandatory rest is necessary. Laurens gets all the support from the team. We look forward to seeing him back on the bike soon.”
