The KNVB Cup second round got underway on Tuesday evening with six ties taking place alongside PSV’s 3-2 defeat to RKC Waalwijk. Here is a round-up of the action. 

De Graafschap 2-5 PEC Zwolle

In the only all Eredivisie clash of the evening, PEC Zwolle eased into the next round thanks to four goals by Zian Flemming.

The former Ajax youngster started up front for the visitors and after 13 minutes he opened the scoring after being set up by Denis Genreau. Ten minutes later, Flemming got his second after a mix-up in the host’s defence and just before the break, his hat-trick was complete with another fine finish.

Eight minutes into the second half, Javier Veti headed in a free-kick to pull one back for De Graafschap but moments later Mike van Duinen netted PEC Zwolle’s fourth.

Erik Bakker made it 2-4 from a corner before the excellent Flemming had the final word with his fourth and PEC Zwolle’s fifth.

AFC 1-0 Oss

Amateur side AFC knocked out Keueken Kampioen Divisie side Oss 1-0 in Amsterdam. Yordi Teijsse was the hero for the home side in the 63rd minute. The visitors were reduced to ten men when Lorenzo Pique saw red in the 87th minute.

Cambuur 2-1 Koninklijke

Cambuur edged past Koninklijke to make it into the third round in Leeuwarden.

Justin Mathieu fired the hosts ahead in the 19th minute before Tyrone Conraad made it 2-0 early in the second half. Jacob Noordmans pulled one back for the visitors with 18 minutes left but Cambuur held on.

Twente 4-2 Noordwijk

FC Twente are safely into the third round after an entertaining 4-2 win over Noordwijk in Enschede.

The hosts appeared to be on their way to a simple victory when goals from Javier Espinosa and Aitor Cantalapiedra gave them a 2-0 lead by the 30th minute. However, a minute after the second, Emiel Wendt pulled one back.

Espinosa’s second restored the two goal lead before the break but Wendt netted again in the 86th minute to set up an interesting finish. Noordwijk looked for an equaliser but in the 90th minute, Rafik Zekhnini sealed the victory for Twente.

Kozakken Boys 2-1 Almere City

A last-minute winner by Ahmed El Azzouti saw Kozakken Boys pull off an upset and knock out Keuken Kampioen Divisie side Almere City.

El Azzouti had given the hosts the lead in the 11th minute, but Almere City appeared to force extra-time when Stijn Meijer equalised. With the last kick of the game, though, El Azzouti sealed Kozakken Boys progress.

Urk 0-1 Roda JC

Mohamed El Makrini scored the only goal of the game in the 53rd minute as Roda JC scraped into the third round at the expense of Urk.
