AZ Alkmaar reached the Dutch Cup quarter-finals with a 3-2 win over Ajax on Thursday in a match watched exclusively by 20,000 children.
The original game between the two sides was abandoned on December 21 when a fan ran onto the pitch and attacked AZ's Costa Rican goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado.
The Dutch football association ordered the match to be replayed but with only children allowed in to watch.
AZ Alkmaar will face amateur side GVVV Veenendaal in the next round.
