Late AZ rally earns point

Goals by Peter Hlinka and Pontus Wernbloom in the last 10 minutes rescued a point for AZ Alkmaar in their Europa League Group G clash with Austria Vienna.

The visitors had taken a 2-0 first-half lead through a Dirk Marcellis own goal and a Gorgon strike.

Vienna appeared to have the points wrapped up but Hlinka sent the ball past his own goalkeeper with 10 minutes left with Wernbloom curling home the equaliser four minutes later.

The Eredivisie leaders were reduced to 10 men in injury time when Niklas Moisander was sent off for two yellow cards but there was insufficient time for this to be of any significance.

The visitors started well and they went ahead in the 19th minute from Marcellis' own goal.

Zlatko Junuzovic played in a corner from the left which Marcellis headed from close range with Moisander unable to divert the ball away from the line.

The hosts looked to respond immediately, Rasmus Elm putting a free-kick wide.

Wernbloom put a header close for the Dutch side but it was the Austrians who were next to score, Gorgon's goal giving them a 2-0 lead after half an hour.

Mader's shot was parried by Alvarado with Gorgon pouncing to slot home from close range.

AZ desperately needed to get back into the game before half-time and Adam Maher almost reduced the deficit with a fierce shot that was tipped round the post by Pascal Grunwald.

Despite plenty of possession AZ were creating few clear-cut chances after the break.

Wernbloom fired over from close range and, with AZ committing numbers in search of a breakthrough, they were always in danger of being vulnerable at the back and Vienna almost took advantage when Alvarado was forced to tip Barazite's shot around the post.

However, AZ were thrown a lifeline when they halved the deficit 10 minutes from time from the second own goal of the game.

This time it was by Peter Hlinka, the midfielder sliding in to put the ball past his own goalkeeper from Fernando Lewis' cross.

Just four minutes later and AZ were level. Elm sent in an inswinging corner from the left which found Wernbloom who curled the ball home.

There was further action when Moisander was sent off in injury time after receiving his second yellow card for a foul on Junuzovic.
