Zorya vs Feyenoord
UEFA Europa League – Group A
Date: Thursday, 3rd November 2016,
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Stadion Chornomorets, Odessa.
Feyenoord will have a great opportunity to bounce back after playing a 2 – 2 draw with Heerenveen over the weekend as they will be travelling to Chornomorets stadium to play Zorya, the rock bottomed team in the group A.
Zorya have a very young squad which is capable of achieving great results, since they are currently sitting in the second position in Ukrainian Premier League being two points ahead of Dynamo Kyiv. The Ukrainian oufit suffered a catastrophe conceding as many as five goals just to Dynamo Kyiv seven days ago in the cup, but they quickly managed to get back on winning ways by taking the third in a row win in the league competition.
Feyenoord were impeccable at the start of the season, but they played two consecutive draws against the main threats to their crown, Ajax and Heerenveen, which cannot be considered as bad results for Giovanni van Bronckhorst. Feyenoord are holding the very top of the table in the group A with six points from the opening three rounds.
