Fenerbahce will be looking to win Group B of the Europa league when they travel to Marshal Jozef Pilsudski Stadium to take on Dynamo Kiev in their group finale on Thursday night.
Fenerbahce have done well in the Europa League this season, claiming 11 point from their five matches so far, although they are level on points with second-placed Rennes.
The Turks will need to match or better Rennes’ result on Thursday to ensure their first-place finish in the group, but both sides have already booked their places in the knockout stages if the competition.
Mircea Lucescu’s men are coming off a 5-2 away win over Istanbulspor, extending their unbeaten run to 12 games across all competitions and they claimed a 2-1 over Kiev in the reverse fixture. Therefore they should be confident of claiming all three points on Thursday.
Dynamo Kiev, meanwhile, have had a difficult time in the Europa League this season, with the side failing to win any of their five games in Group B so far.
A 3-3 draw against Larnaca last week saw them pick up their first point in the group, and now they sit at the bottom of the group three points behind Larnaca. They will need to on Thursday and hope that Larnaca lose to claim a third-placed finish.
The Ukrainians claimed a confidence-boosting 3-1 home win over Kryvbas Kriviy in their domestic league fixture, ending their four-match winless run in all competitions. They will look to draw confidence from that as they hope for their first win in the Europa League.
