Wednesday night saw Ajax reach the last sixteen of the Dutch Cup after a strange and electrifying clash. FC Utrecht were beaten 5-4 at the Johan Cruijff ArenA. Dusan Tadic's stunning long-distance shot in the 89th minute, his second score of the game, helped seal the win for Ajax. The other goals came from Zakaria Labyad (who scored twice) and Antony.
