VVV Venlo came away from the Euroborg with a shock 1-0 victory over Groningen.

Both sides went into the game feeling confident after good starts to 2020. Groningen had only lost one game all year, while VVV had moved away from the drop zone with two wins and three draws.

Groningen dominated the game from the start but Joel Asoro and Ramon Pascal Lundqivst missed good chances, while goalkeeper Thorsten Kirschbaum saved a great effort from Daishwan Redan.

The visitors offered little but Groningen could not find the net in the second half despite a lot of pressure.

With two minutes to go, VVV stunned the hosts when Sergio Padt made a big mistake which allowed Oussama Darfalou to head into an empty net.

VVV are now 14th and five points above the drop zone while Groningen are 8th.
