Excelsior has reached the Quarter-finals of the KNVB Cup after a penalty shootout victory over MVV Maastricht. The match finished 2-2.

Excelsior took the lead after fifteen minutes through Elías Már Ómarsson, but before the break, goals from Koen Kostons and Joeri Schroijen had turned the game in MVV’s favour.

Siebe Horemans levelled the score halfway through the second-half and the game eventually went to extra-time and then penalties.

MVV captain Luc Mares missed the crucial spot-kick and Excelsior now have a place in the last eight of the cup.
