Fenerbahce v Anderlecht: Match Preview

Fenerbahce are five points behind top spot in second in Group D and will need a win against Anderlecht this evening to make it into the knockout stages.

The hosts drew against Anderlecht in the reverse fixture and are looking to snatch the three points this evening.

Anderlecht are bottom of group D after they got off to a rocky start against the current leaders, Dinamo Zagreb. However, Vanhaezebrouck’s men managed to turn their next game into a 1-0 victory against Spartak Trnava.

Domestically, Anderlecht sit fourth in the Belgian Pro League, seven points behind league leaders Genk.

Meanwhile Fenerbahce have conceded six goals in this year’s competition, the most in their group, and seem to be struggling at the back.

They have also been struggling in the Turkish League, only winning two games all season.

A win is an absolute necessity for Fenerbahce in order to give them any chance at progression in the competition.
