Willem II headed to Groningen in sixth spot and in good form but the home side were the better team from the start and deservedly took the lead in the 40th minute.
After good work by Django Warmerdam, Kaj Sierhuis worked the ball past Timo Wellenreuther.
Two minutes into the second half, Sierhuis doubled Groningen’s lead after racing onto Joel Osoro’s header before hammering a shot into the net.
Sierhuis was then substituted to a standing ovation on 63 minutes as Groningen comfortably saw out the remaining half-an-hour.
