Fenerbahce hosts Antwerp in round 3 of the Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, October 21st at Ulker Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Fenerbahce became the leader of the Turkish championship. After eight rounds, the team has 19 points. In view of this, I can conclude that the Europa League is not very interesting for the Yellow Canaries. Firstly, the coach actively rotates the roster in matches of this tournament. Secondly, the results in the group leave much to be desired: an away draw against Eintracht Frankfurt (1-1) and a home defeat to Olympiacos (0-3). Be that as it may, Fener has positive home statistics in the Europa League. In the last 17 matches, the Canaries suffered only two defeats, gaining 11 victories and four draws. The team from Istanbul did not score more than one goal in seven out of nine last home games in the UEL.
After two rounds of the Europa League group stage, Antwerp has not a single point scored. The Great Old lost to Olympiacos (2-1) and Eintracht Frankfurt (0-1). They continue a streak of defeats in the away UEL matches. It has already amounted to four games. Interestingly, Brian Priske's charges managed to keep a clean sheet in only one of the previous eight games in the Europa League. It happened in the playoffs against the Cypriot Omonia this season (2-0). Antwerp is doing very well in the Belgian championship. After ten rounds, the team has 20 points. This is enough to be on the 2nd line in the standings. The gap to the leader is only two points. In the last five matches, only victories were recorded.
Judging by the domestic championships, Fenerbahce and Antwerp are in decent shape. But as I noted earlier, the teams do not perform very well in the Europa League. So far, they have not gained a single victory in the group stage. Perhaps now someone will be able to earn three points, right? Like bookmakers, I tend to think that the Canaries have more chances. First, the factor of the home pitch is on their side. Secondly, even using rotation, Vitor Pereira has the opportunity to field such masters as Ozil and Sosa.
