Holman's late goal helps AZ claim fifth straight win

Brett Holman's goal in the 84th minute 1 win over Feyenoord on Sunday, sending the club to the top of the Eredivisie table.

The win is AZ's fifth in succession while Feyenoord's unbeaten start to the season comes to an end.

It took 36 minutes for the opening goal to arrive and it came courtesy of a nice run by Ruben Schaken, who got to the end line down the right wing and pulled the ball back for Otman Bakkal to fire home from inside the area, giving Feyenoord a 1-0 lead at halftime.

AZ equalized on the hour mark with a 25-yard free kick from Rasmus Elm that found the corner of the net, while Feyenoord's Kelvin Leerdam picked up a red card eight minutes later for a poor challenge on Dirk Marcellis.

And it was Marcellis that set up the winning goal as his cross from the right found Holman at the back post for a header into the far corner of the net.
