AZ are held to a goalless draw by Slovan Liberec in the first leg of their Europa League knockout tie.

A late Nick Viergever goal has earned AZ a 1-0 win at Slovan Liberec in the Europa League this evening.

The Dutch side controlled large periods of the game without threatening the home goal too often, but take the advantage in the two-legged tie.

Having just about edged a tight opening 20 minutes, Slovan conceded the game's first real chance when Celso Ortiz found space just outside the box. However, his effort was straight at the goalkeeper.

Premsyl Kovar continued to be kept busy with long-range efforts from Roy Beerens and Aron Johannsson but the hosts were comfortable until the break.

Slovan came out firing after the break, forcing Esteban Alvarado into action from set pieces but AZ eventually took control again.

The pressure eventually told just a minute from time, when a long free kick fell to the feet of Viergever who fired beyond the goalkeeper..
