Go Ahead Eagles started the away game against RKC brilliantly and a Marnix Kolder brace helped them to a 2-0 lead. Nevertheless, the hosts fought back after red cards for Kolder and Ricky ten Voorde (RKC) and Geoffrey Castillion, Mitchell Schet and Ard van Peppen eventually helped the Eredivisie side to the quarter-finals.

Amateur side GVVV grabbed an early lead against Sparta courtesy of a Simon Brouwer strike, but Sidney Schmeltz restored parity after the interval. The minnows then proved to be the stronger side of the two after penalties.

Heracles dominated proceedings right from the start and needed only two minutes to go 1-0 up against De Graafschap after Willie Overtoom's goal. The Almelo side then doubled their lead when Purrel Frankel beat his own goalkeeper, before Sam Armenteros and Marko Vejinovic put the match to bed.


Heerenveen were never really troubled by Oss and decided the match in the opening 45 minutes. Luciano Narsingh (2x), Bas Dost and Filipe Djuricic all found the net before the winter break, before Sven Kums, Rajiv van La Parra and again Djuricic made it seven. Christopher Bieber then pegged one back for Oss, but Van La Parra, Darryl Janmaat, Dost and Jeffrey Gouweleeuw made it 11-1 for the Friezen.

Krisztian Vadocz gifted NEC an early lead against Achilles and John Goossens doubled the Eredivisie outfit's lead before the interval. Substitute Melvin Platje then decided the clash in the closing staged of the game.

The match between Ajax and AZ at the Amsterdam ArenA was abandoned after 38 minutes of play after a fan invaded the pitch and attacked the guests' goalkeeper.


Things were not looking good for Vitesse when they were reduced to 10 man against Eindhoven as Guram Kashia was dismissed. However, they still managed to go 1-0 up when Marco van Ginkel found the net with a calm finish. Sjors Paridaans then restored parity minutes after, before Stanley Aborah helped the Arnhem side to the next round well into stoppage time.

PSV caused the Twente defence all kinds of trouble in Enschede, but Nikolay Mihaylov proved to be too much of an obstacle in regular time. The Bulgaria international couldn't do anything about Tim Matavz's 101st minute header though as the striker finally broke the deadlock. Marc Janko levelled the scoring again shortly after when he converted a spot kick, but again Matavz made it 2-1 in the 114th minute to end Twente's KNVB Beker ambitions.
