FC Groningen´s postponed match with Ajax will now take place on Wednesday, it has been confirmed.

The clash was originally scheduled to take place on Sunday but was called off by match officials after a small group of fans set fire to toilet rolls before kick-off, causing blazes in the stands and on the pitch.

One stand in the Euroborg had to be evacuated while the fires where put out, but lingering smoke meant the fixture was called off.
