Arjen Robben made his Groningen comeback as they drew 0-0 with Groningen.

For the first time since the opening game of the season, Arjen Robben appeared in the Groningen squad, but was named on the bench. Eljero Elia was also on the bench for Utrecht despite Mimoun Mahi missing the game.

Utrecht had the better of the first half and Sergio Padt prevented Simon Gustafson from giving them the lead. Early in the second half, Sander van de Streek was also denied by the Groningen stopper.

Moussa Sylla thought he had given Utrecht the lead, but the goal was ruled out for a marginal offside in the build-up.

Groningen then introduced Arjen Robben with fifteen minutes left, while Elia came on for Utrecht. The two veterans couldn’t prevent the game ending in a 0-0 draw.

Groningen are seventh while Utrecht sits one place below them.
