AZ Within A Sniff Of The Champions League

Ex-Rangers man Shota Arveladze scored in the last minute of the game to give AZ Alkmaar a slender 2-1 advantage in the first-leg of the Dutch Eredivisie playoff for the Champions League. The win gave Louis van Gaal's team a small measure of revenge after losing on penalties to the Amsterdam side two weeks ago in the final of the Dutch Cup.

The return leg is next Sunday in Amsterdam.
