Nemanja Gudelj: Found the net for AZ

AZ Alkmaar will take a comfortable lead into the second leg of their Europa League play-off semi-final after a convincing 3-0 win over Heerenveen.

Celso Ortiz opened the scoring after 26 minutes before a Nemanja Gudelj penalty 11 minutes later made it 2-0.

Steven Berghuis then grabbed a third just a minute after that to give the home side a significant cushion.

In the other semi-final, Lorenzo Burnet scored two minutes from time to give FC Groningen a narrow 1-0 lead over Vitesse going into the away leg.
