The battle for qualification continues in group A of the UEFA Europa League as Feyenoord host Fenerbahce on Thursday night at Stadion Feijnoord Rotterdam.
Feyenoord needs a two goal win to be able to qualify, lest they will be at the mercy of the outcome of Zorya and United game.

Also they have not conceded in their last 4 group stage home games.
Meanwhile, the group leaders Fenerbahce needs just a point to scale through to the round of 32. Also they can loose and qualify depending on the outcome of Zorya vs United game. Fenerbahce’s away record in their recent UEFA games have been a mixed bag. They have won 2, drawn 2 games and lost 3 games in their last 7 away games in the UEFA away games.
