Groningen dominated from start to finish but were held to a 1-1 draw by Willem II.

The home side went into the game looking for their first win since the 14th of January and they had the better of the first half. Juninho Bacuna and Jesper Drost both forced Kostas Lamprou into good saves, while Sorloth sent a header wide.

Four minutes into the second half the hosts finally made the breakthrough as Mimoun Mahi’s shot deflected into the path of Ruben Jenssen who slotted into the net from just inside the box.

Willem II barely threatened but nine minutes after the opener they equalised when Jordy Croux’s excellent cross found Obbi Oulare who sent his header into the net.

Groningen piled forward in search of a winner but Sorloth missed with another header while Mahi somehow didn’t score with the goal gaping. In injury time Yoell van Nieff had a good chance to grab all three points but he was denied by Lamprou.

The hosts wait for a win goes on and they remain 11th while Willem II are ninth.
