sport“>First the schlemiel of the last competition and now AZ itself failed. It was not possible to get through to the group stage of the Champions League on their own. AZ has no business there either. Everything in the preparation was dominated by the CL. That makes the elimination by Dinamo Kiev sour, but not unjustified. It begs the question of what they have been up to in Alkmaar in recent weeks. After the breakaway against Viktoria Plzen, the team with all its talents made a poor impression again.
