Bart Ramselaar opened the scoring for Utrecht in the 32nd minute

FC Utrecht caused an upset in the quarter-finals of the Dutch Cup football tournament beating PSV Eindhoven 3-1. Bart Ramselaar opened the scoring for Utrecht in the 32nd minute. Sebastien Haller produced the second Utrecht goal four minutes from half-time.

PSV's new signing Marco van Ginkel, who arrived on loan from Chelsea and started as a replacement for injured Andres Guardado, had the first chance of the match, but the visitors took control afterwards on Thursday, reports Xinhua.

AZ Alkmaar were the first team to book a semi-final berth

In the second half, Utrecht continued to outclass PSV and went 3-0 up with Ramselaar scoring again.

The home team pulled one back through Hector Moreno but did not come closer.

Last Tuesday AZ Alkmaar were the first to book a semi-final berth by beating amateur side HHC Hardenberg 1-0 while on Wednesday another amateur side VVSB from Noordwijkerhout shocked first division side FC Den Bosch by coming back from 0-2 behind to win 3-2 in the final minutes.

Feyenoord, which lost their last five league matches in a row, solved their crisis by beating Roda JC 1-0 in Kerkrade after extra time on Wednesday. Defender Eric Botteghin headed in the winning goal.
