Groningen got their first win of the season after a Shaquille Pinas own goal was enough to earn a 1-0 win over ADO Den Haag.

Both sides went into the game looking to bounce back after defeats last weekend, with Groningen without the injured Arjen Robben.

From the start, Groningen were the better side and they took the lead in the 23rd minute when Pinas scuffed a cross into his own net.

Azor Matusiwa and Jørgen Strand Larsen both went close to doubling the lead before the break as ADO Den Haag struggled to keep out the visitors.

ADO Den Haag didn’t improve after the break and only good saves from Koopmans on Ramon Pascal Lundqvist and Tomas Suslov prevented the scoreline being higher.

Groningen get their first points of the campaign, while its worrying times for ADO Den Haag.
