Ado and Groningen's Europa showdown

ADO Den Haag will take on FC Groningen for a place in the Europa League next season after both sides emerged victorious from their semi-finals.

ADO won 2-1 at Roda JC to go through 6-3 on aggregate, while Groningen scraped through on away goals after their 2-1 win at home to Heracles Almelo meant the tie ended 4-4.

The two sides will now meet in a two-legged final to be played this Thursday and Sunday.

Roda went into their second leg 4-2 behind against ADO, but they reduced the deficit after 15 minutes thanks to Morten Skoubo.

Mitchell Pique restored ADO's two-goal cushion overall in the 31st minute, though, and Wesley Verhoek's 79th-minute effort sealed their progress.

Groningen started their semi 3-2 down, but turned the tie around thanks to a goal either side of half-time from Petter Andersson (29) and Oluwafemi Ajilore (47).

They were reduced to 10 men in the 76th minute when Tim Sparv was sent off and Heracles grabbed a lifeline with Glynor Plet's 87th-minute goal, but Groningen held out to go through on away goals.
