Ajax have eased into the KNVB Cup quarter-finals after a comfortable 7-0 win over amateur side Spakenburg. Naci Unuvar made his debut and scored.

Erik ten Hag made some changes for the cup clash with Siem de Jong, Lassina Traore, Bruno Valera, Carel Eiting, Ravzan Marin and Edson Alvarez all starting.

Spakeburg held their own until the 18th minute when De Jong finished off on the rebound after Eiting was denied.

Nicolas Tagliafico and Marin missed good chances before De Jong doubled the lead in the 42nd minute. The midfielder then sealed his hat-trick before the break from A Sergino Dest cross.

Four minutes into the second half, Traore made it 4-0 with a simple finish before the striker made it 5-0 shortly afterwards. Dusan Tadic quickly added the sixth with a fine finish.

Ten Hag then gave 16-year-old Naci Unuvar his official first team debut, which made him the 3rd youngest ever Ajax debutante after Ryan Gravenberch and Clarence Seedorf. The attacking midfielder marked his debut with a goal, scoring from the penalty spot after he was brought down.

Ajax ease into the final eight where they will meet Vitesse Arnhem.
