Utrecht defeated Groningen 2-1 in the early kick-off on Sunday.

Utrecht went into the game on the back of two straight victories and they had the best chances early on without taking the lead.

Just before the break, Groningen broke the deadlock with Florian Krรผger sliding the ball into the roof of the net after a Ricardo Pepi shot landed at his feet.

Utrecht pushed for an equaliser in the second half and they found it just after the hour. Taylor Booth played a lovely one-two with Sander van de Streek before netting.

Bas Dost appeared from the bench as Utrecht looked for the winner and it fell in the 84th minute as a Younes cross was slid in by Van de Streek.

Utrecht makes it three wins on the bounce and they are 7th, while Groningen is in 14th.
