Willem II have closed the gap on PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord after a 3-1 win over Groningen in Tilburg.

Willem II have had a wobble in form recently but against Groningen they got back to winning ways with ease.

In the 27th minute, Damil Dankerlui capitalised on poor defending to set up Che Nunnely for a simple finish. In the 40th minute it was 2-0 as Vangelis Pavlidis placed a good strike past Sergio Padt.

Heavy rain made the pitch difficult but the home side didn’t care and on the hour mark it was 3-0. Pavlidis turned provider and set up Mats Köhlert for a simple finish.

Groningen pulled one back through Ahmed El Messaoudi but that was nothing more than a consolation.

Willem II remains fifth but close the gap on PSV and Feyenoord, who clash this weekend. Groningen are eighth.
