psv-spartSparta Rotterdam 3-1 PSV

PSV Eindhoven are out of the KNVB Cup after going down to Sparta Rotterdam.

The two sides met in the league at the weekend with PSV struggling to a 1-0 victory and Phillip Cocu decided to pick his strongest possible side as he looked to progress in a competition the club haven’t won in four years.

However, Sparta started brightly and took the lead on fifteen minutes with Bart Vriends tapping in from close range after a corner went through the legs of Luuk de Jong. PSV’s problems in the first half were added to on the half hour mark when Luciano Narsingh, who had missed a good chance early on, limped off with a hamstring injury. Just before the break Davy Propper nearly drew PSV level but his shot hit the bar.

Bart Ramselaar scored the winner against Sparta on Saturday and he found the equaliser early in the second half, finishing a pass from Santiago Arias. PSV then seemed to have a grip on the game, but Sparta then retook the lead through Zakaria El Azzouzi who scored on the rebound after a great shot from Stijn Spierings.

PSV then gifted Sparta a third goal with Remko Pasveer misjudging his pass to Isimat-Mirin which allowed Loris Brogno to sneak in and finish easily.

Go Ahead Eagles 1-2 Jodan Boys

Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles are out of the KNVB Cup after being stunned by amateur side Jodan Boys in Deventer.

Go Ahead Eagles started the game brightly with Sam Hendriks opening the scoring after only 28 minutes. However, the amateur side from Gouda then came back into the game and early in the second half Levi Marengo curled a beautiful free kick into the top corner to level the score.

Jodan Boys then stunned the home crowd five minutes from time with Roald Heerkens netting a winner.

ADO Den Haag 2-1 Telstar

The number ten of the Eredivisie came from behind to knock-out the number ten in the Eerste Divisie thanks to a late goal by youngster Dennis van der Heijden.

Former PEC Zwolle attacker Denis Mahmudov put Telstar ahead in the first half but the home side then equalised with fifteen minutes to go through Mike Havenaar. Van der Heijden then came off the bench to head in the winner to ensure ADO Den Haag’s place in the next round.
