Ajax saved a poor Cup performance at the last minute with beautiful finish. The team from Amsterdam needed overtime against FC Dordrecht to ensure themselves of a spot in the fourth round of the KNVB Cup. Urby Emanuelson’s two goals at the Krommendijk were worth their weight in gold. After their Cup match win against AGOVV Apeldoorn (2-1), Ajax once again faced an opponent from the Jupiler League in the fourth round of the KNVB Cup. To stay in the running for an 18th KNVB Cup, Ajax needed to win. They had a tough time in Dordrecht, just as they had had in Apeldoorn. But Ajax ended a difficult evening with a cautious smile as they left the field.
