In the 35th minute, NAC Breda stunned the home crowd when Mounir El Allouchi found the net via AZ right-back Jonas Svensson.

AZ pushed forward looking for the equaliser in the second half but on the hour-mark, NAC made it 2-0. Robin Schouten found the net after a swift counter.

Oussama Idrissi quickly pulled one back for AZ Alkmaar five minutes later, but despite pressure an equaliser did not come. Five minutes from time, NAC sealed their place in the last four through Javi Noblejas.

NAC Breda will now meet the winner of the tie between Heerenveen and Feyenoord.
