AZ starts on Tuesday evening with Albert Gudmundsson in the away match against Dynamo Kiev in the third heat of the Champions League. The Icelander takes the place of Oussama Idrissi.
In the home game with Viktoria Plzen three weeks ago in the second heat, trainer Arne Slot still chose Idrissi, but the 24-year-old attacker now starts on the bench. Furthermore, the coach made no changes to his starting team.
Fran Sol starts on the bench at Dynamo Kiev. The 28-year-old Spaniard played for Willem II for three years and made the switch to the Ukrainian top club in January 2019. Former Telstar attacker Gerson Rodrigues is at the kick-off.
AZ had a quiet preparation for the encounter with Dynamo Kiev, because the Alkmaarders did not have to take action in the Eredivisie last weekend. The KNVB decided to postpone the match against FC Utrecht at the request of AZ.
Tuesday-evening’s game with Dynamo Kiev is crucial, as all matches in the third heat of the Champions League are decided on one game. Dynamo Kiev-AZ starts at 7 p.m. and is led by referee Orel Grinfeeld.
The match can be followed via a livestream on Press.
