The UEFA Europa Conference League returns to action in midweek and will see Fenerbahce square off against Slavia Prague at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium on Thursday.

Both sides head into the game fresh off the back of impressive victories over the weekend and will be looking to keep the ball rolling.

Fenerbahce returned to winning ways in the Turkish Super Lig as they saw off Giresunspor 1-0 away from home last Saturday.

Prior to that, Ismail Kartal’s men were on a three-game winless run, picking up one draw and losing two, including a 1-0 defeat against Kayserispor in the Turkish Cup.

With six points from six games, Fenerbahce finished third in Group D of the Europa League and will be seeking to end their two-game winless run in Europe.

Meanwhile, Slavia Prague finished second in Group E of the Conference League after picking up eight points from six outings.

They head into Thursday’s game fresh off the back of ending their two-game losing streak courtesy of a 1-0 win over Slovako in the Czech Republic top flight.

Manager Jindřich Trpišovský will hope the win can serve as a catalyst for a fine run of form as they look to go all the way in the Conference League.
