Feyenoord will host Olympique Marseille on Thursday - UEFA Europa Conference League

European football returns this week and will see Feyenoord host Olympique Marseille at De Kuip on Thursday night in the semifinals of the Europa Conference League.

Feyenoord have had an impressive European campaign this season. They topped their group after going unbeaten throughout the six games before beating FK Partizan 8-3 on aggregate in the last 16 of the competition. They then faced Slavia Praha in the quarterfinals, winning 3-1 on away turf after playing out a 3-3 draw in the first leg.

The hosts' last European triumph came back in the 2001-02 season when they won the Europa League. They have Olympique Marseille between them and a place in the Conference League final.

After their group stage exit from the UEFA Europa League, the Olympians have found better luck in the newly formed competition, seeing off Qarabag, Basel and most recently Greek side PAOK to clinch a semifinal spot.

Olympique Marseille are out of the running for any domestic silverware this season and will now turn their attention to the European stage.
