Sports Mole previews Thursday's Europa League clash between Wolfsberger and Feyenoord, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

Wolfsberger will take on Feyenoord on matchday six of the Europa League on Thursday evening, with both sides still able to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

The hosts are currently in second place in Group K, while Feyenoord are just two points behind them in third, with the final group game proving pivotal for both teams.


Match preview

Wolfsberger only need a draw to confirm their place in the round of 32, having picked up seven points in their opening five matches.

Their latest European result saw a 1-0 triumph against CSKA Moscow, and the Russian side have already faced elimination from the competition.

During the game, Dario Vizinger was the only player able to get on the scoresheet, with the striker netting his fourth goal in all competitions this term.

Although the Austrian side only need one point to make it through to the next stage of the Europa League, they will undoubtedly be concerned about their home form in the competition, with the hosts still winless in all five home Europa League matches - drawing twice and losing three times.

Feyenoord, meanwhile, have to win their upcoming game against Wolfsberger in order to qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League.

However, the Dutch outfit have only managed one victory in the competition thus far - a 3-1 win against CSKA in matchday three.

Their previous European game ended in a 2-0 loss against group winners Dinamo Zagreb, with Dick Advocaat's men on just five points as they head into Thursday's clash.

Feyenoord's away form in Europe has been particularly worrying, with the team now winless in their last 12 away matches across both the Europa League and Champions League. During their away matches in the competition this season, the side have only managed to record two goalless draws.

The last and only time these two sides have met was back on matchday two of this season's Europa League, where Wolfsberger secured a comfortable 4-1 win over Feyenoord.

Team News

The home supporters will be pleased to know that they have no injury concerns heading into this game, with Ferdinand Feldhofer able to choose from a fully fit squad.

Therefore, the Austrian manager is likely to field a similar starting XI that managed a win against CSKA last week, keeping Vizinger up front.

However, Feyenoord are currently experiencing an injury crisis, with eight players currently out of the team, including the likes of Brian Linssen, Christian Conteh and Ridgeciano Haps.

Both Robert Bozenik and Sven van Beek are also sidelined with an ankle injury, while Leroy Fer is nursing a hamstring problem.

Wolfsberger possible starting lineup:
Kofler; Novak, Baumgartner, Lochoshvili, Scherzer; Taferner, Wernitznig, Liendl, Sprangler; Peretz, Vizinger

Feyenoord possible starting lineup:
Marsman; Geertruida, Spajic, Senesi, Malacia; Diemers, Toornstra, Kokcu; Berghuis, Jorgensen, Narsingh


We say: Wolfsberger 1-1 Feyenoord

Currently, as there is not much to separate the two sides, we expect the final score to be a draw on Thursday. Although Feyenoord will be determined to get the win in midweek, in order for them to qualify for the next stage of the competition, we reckon their injury troubles will hinder their chances.
