Ahmed El Messaoudi scored again as Groningen defeated RKC Waalwijk 2-0.

Both sides went into the game in decent form with RKC having a much-improved campaign. Groningen have settled in the top eight and were looking to move into the top five.

Groningen opened the scoring in on the half-hour mark with El Messaoudi finding the net after the ball fell at his feet. The midfielder makes it three goals in two games.

RKC struggled to find a way through an organised home side but Vurnon Anita went close in the second half with a strike that had to be well saved by Sergio Padt.

Groningen settled the victory in the 76th minute as Daniel van Kaam netted his first Eredivisie goal.

The win moves Groningen to fifth, while RKC are down in 12th.
