Our match prediction:
Ajax Amsterdam and Fenerbahce from Istanbul will face each other on Thursday evening at 20:05 for the Europa League. Both teams didn't win any games in the group stage yet; Ajax collected 2 points and Fenerbahce only 1 point so far which means this could be the last chance for Fenerbahce in order to get through the next round of the Europa League. Both teams managed to win their last game in the national league and seem ready for this crucial game. We expect both teams to be very equal to each other. The home advantage gives Fenerbahce a slightly better perspective. Form of the day will be decisive in this interesting Europa League game.
