Ajax sneak through in Dutch Cup

December 24, 2010

Ajax reached the quarter-finals of the KNVB Beker with a narrow 1-0 home win over AZ Alkmaar.

The Amsterdammers, who are currently under the stewardship of caretaker boss Frank De Boer following Martin Jol's recent exit, took the lead three minutes before the break through the resurgent Miralem Sulejmani.

AZ tried to respond after half-time but it was in vain as Ajax held on for their spot in the last eight.
