FC Groningen moved up to third place in the Eredivisie after two late goals gave Ron Jans´ side a 2-1 win at Willem II.

Frank van der Struijk gave the struggling hosts the lead with a 37th-minute penalty but an own goal from Thomas Baelum with just eight minutes remaining brought the Champions League hopefuls level.

Sepp de Roover grabbed the winner two minutes later to move Groningen to within three points of second-placed Ajax.
