Heerenveen booked their place in the quarter-finals but they needed an 88th minute goal to see off IJsselmeervogels.

Volendam 4-1 VVSB

There was no shock in Tuesday’s early kick off with Volendam seeing off second division side VVSB.

The hosts took the lead through a Erik Schouten header on five minutes, but VVSB equalised soon after with Giovialli Serbony taking advantage of a defensive error to score.

On fifteen minutes a massive goalkeeping error by VVSB’s Ruben Valk gifted Volendam the lead again. He dropped a seemingly harmless free kick into the path of Kees Kwakman, who slid the ball into the net.

Gyliano van Velzen then netted a double either side of half time to ensure Volendam’s place in the Quarter finals.
