No one expected this. The draw for the quarter-finals of the Dutch Women's Football Cup, today, Monday, resulted in an unusual confrontation between two teams from the same club. Here we're talking about the main team, Ajax, the current women's football champions in the Netherlands, and about the Ajax U19 team, which entered the competition after winning the Dutch U23 title last year.

“It's a shame to play against our own team. But on the other hand, it's a great experience for our young girls to face players who have reached the quarter-finals of a competition like the Women's Champions League. It's a bit divisive. Anouk Bruel, coach of the Ajax Women's Under-19 team, revealed. About how she felt.

Ajax's U19s are truly the 'underdogs' in this round, which also includes some of the country's biggest teams, such as Feyenoord, Twente, Fortuna Sittard, Ultrecht, Excelsior and Heerenveen, having been eliminated in the previous round by Telstar currently. Last place in the first division with a score of 3-0.

After the draw, the club continued to joke about the situation on social media: “We will play against Ajax in the quarter-finals!”, can be read in one of the posts related to the draw held on Monday.
