Vangelis Pavlidis scores ninth goal of the campaign during AZ Alkmaar’s 4-0 victory over Fortuna Sittard

AZ Alkmaar striker Vangelis Pavlidis continued his incredible goal scoring streak on Sunday afternoon by scoring in his side’s 4-0 victory over Fortuna Sittard. The Greece international has scored in every Eredivisie game so far this season (seven matches) and he’s taken his tally up to nine goals this campaign. He’s the first AZ player to ever score in each of their first seven games of a league season.

The hosts kicked off their game against Fortuna with 16 points from their opening six league games. After a fairly slow first half, AZ opened the scoring through the former Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie. Four minutes into the second half, it was Vangelis Pavlidis’ time to shine. The 24-year-old striker did a fantastic job of rounding the Fortuna goalkeeper before converting from close range.

An own goal and a strike from Tiago Dantas topped off the 4-0 win for AZ Alkmaar. The three points means they sit second in the Eredivisie table with PSV Eindhoven ahead of them. Next up, they face Legia Warsaw in the Europa Conference League before facing Ajax in the league. A tough schedule, but with an inform Vangelis Pavlidis, they’re capable of anything at the moment.
