Louis van Gaal announced at the post-match press conference that too many AZ players had not been in great shape on Saturday night. Guus Hiddink was very content with what he called “a fine result and an excellent win". "All credit to PSV""When AZ travel to PSV, one might expect to see a clash between two top teams. But it was not to be a quality game and AZ are more to be blamed for that than PSV”, was the first reaction of Louis van Gaal, when asked to analyze the game. "I thought we had a nervous start. We controlled the game pretty well tactically and we did not concede many chances. But we suffered a blow when De Zeeuw had to be substituted, as he has more attacking ideas as a defender than Vlaar or Opdam. PSV were the stronger side and created chances. We dominated in the second half, but we created hardly any chances for which PSV deserves all credit. When Vlaar was red-carded it was all over. PSV even made it three and I think that’s a shame.”"Tactically well responded"Guus Hiddink had seen two tactically well-disciplined sides. "We took advantage of some sloppy moment and we opened the scoring on the verge of half time. AZ started the second half brightly, but we responded tactically well. 1-0. All in all this is a fine result and bearing in mind the circumstances we are in it is even an excellent win.”
