AZ Alkmaar 2, Utrecht 0 (Eredivisie, Dec. 19, 2008)

AZ moved six points clear at the top of the table, Mounir El Hamdaoui collected the ball just outside the box, shifted the ball to the right, and scored with a bullet into the top corner. Demy de Zeeuw sealed the win with a last minute solo effort, bursting down the left and firing the ball through the keeper.

A horrendous error from the home keeper gifted Fener the lead, a tame punch from the number one rebounded off the chest of Onder Turaci for the opener. A minute later it was two as Guiza teed up Deivid de Souza for a simple second. The hosts pulled a goal back in the second half through Cihan’s strike.
