Toulouse left no doubt about the outcome of the match. They were 5-0 up at halftime in a 6-1 win over Rodez.

Spakenburg, Feyenoord, PSV Eindhoven, and Ajax are off to the semifinals of the KNVB CUP.

Tweede Divisie (third-tier) Sapeknburg traveled to Utrecht to knock out Eredivisie side FC Utrecht in the opening match of the quarterfinals by 4 goals to 1.
