Ten-man Vitesse Arnhem earned a point against Groningen in a drab affair at the Euroborg.

The hosts came out of the blocks quickly and took the lead after only six minutes with Frederik Jenssen’s strike taking a wicked deflection off Kelvin Leerdam before ending in the back of the net.

Hans Hateboer missed a good chance to make it 2-0 soon after, while at the other end Adnane Tighadouini was unlucky to see his strike come back off the inside of the post.

Four minutes into the second half Vitess equalised through Navarone Foor, who guided Milot Rashica’s excellent cross into the bottom corner. Neither side could find the winner and Vitesse finished the game with ten men as Foor saw a straight red for a wild challenge on Juninho Bacuna.

The point means Groningen remain ninth while Vitesse are 7th.
