AZ Alkmaar and Roda JC secured safe passage into the semi-finals of the Gatorade Cup.

Eredivisie title challengers AZ cruised past MVV, while Roda proved too good for Helmond Sport.

AZ fielded a strong side despite having other priorities and Louis van Gaal was rewarded with a 4-0 win over the team from Maastricht.

Denny Landzaat set the ball rolling with a goal on 19 minutes and a brace from Martijn Meerdink put the game beyond the Eerste Divisie side.

Danny Koevermans added some gloss to the scoreline with a fourth 20 minutes from time.

Roda were made to work harder to overcome Helmond Sport, but a brace from Andres Oper took them into the last four.
