The goal was his fourth in four games in all competitions.
After the ball deflected to Johannsson in the box, the striker clipped the ball over RKC goalkeeper Jan Seda to open the scoring. The home side found an equalizer in the 83rd minute through Jean-David Beauguel, but AZ struck back one minute later, as Maarten Martens grabbed the winner.
