Another game, another goal for Aron Johannsson.
Johannsson extended his scoring streak for AZ Alkmaar on Thursday, netting the winner in the club’s 3-1 victory over Atromitos in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League play-offs series. Johannsson has now scored in five straight matches across all competitions for AZ, a stretch that dates back to July 27 and includes Eredivisie and Super Cup games.
Johannsson netted in the 74th minute of AZ’s road fixture, punctuating a quick counter-attack with a finish to the near post after neatly cutting to the inside of a defender.
Up by two goals on aggregate, AZ host the second leg of the play-offs series next Thursday.

What do you think of Johannsson’s latest goal? How long do you see this scoring streak being? Is he all but assured a spot on next month’s U.S. Men’s National Team roster now?
