AZ Alkmaar and Groningen played out a goalless draw in the AFAS Stadion on Saturday night.

The home side dominated the first half but could not find a way past Sergio Padt, who saved well from Stijn Wuytens and Mats Seuntjens, while Dabney Dos Santos saw an effort blocked. At the other end Tim Krul was called into action to deny Mimoun Mahi.

In the second half, Krul was the busier goalkeeper as he kept out a shot by Juninho Bacuna before frustrating Mahi and Ruben Janssen. Joris van Overeem missed a good chance for AZ, who couldn’t raise their game to snatch three points towards the end.

With the point, AZ remain fifth, while Groningen are 12th.
