Amsterdamsche 1-2 Heerenveen

Heerenveen were given a big scare on Wednesday and needed two late goals to overcome amateur side Amsterdamsche.

Dalian Maatsen put the hosts in front and they frustrated Heerenveen until the 76th minute when Henk Veerman equalised. Filip Stevanovic then quickly put Heerenveen ahead to seal their place in the next round.

OSS’20 0-2 Twente

Twente are safely through to the next round after a win over amateur side OSS’20.

GVVV 0-2 Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta Rotterdam are struggling in the Eredivisie but they are safely into the next round at the expense of GVVV.

Groningen 4-0 Helmond Sport

Youngsters Romano Postema and Daleho Irandust had starring roles as Groningen easily defeated Helmond Sport.

In the 19th minute, Irandust set up Postema, who cut inside before firing in the opening goal for the hosts. Two minutes later, Irandust made it 2-0 after being set up by Postema.

Postema netted his second of the game before the break with a convincing finish before Jorgen Strand Larsen wrapped up the victory with a header nine minutes into the second half.

VV Capelle 0-3 NEC Nijmegen

Elayis Tavzan continued his fine form with a brace as NEC Nijmegen reached the second round of the cup.

The winger opened the scoring after only four minutes before he added a second goal just before the break. In the second half, Ole Romeny sealed the simple victory.

Fortuna Sittard 3-0 Oss

George Cox netted twice as Fortuna Sittard eased into the second round.
