Gent are looking to finish on a high

Gent host Flora at the Ghelamco Arena on Thursday in their final group fixture of the Europa Conference League.

The Buffalos have already secured a place in the last-16 by winning Group B, as they sit at the top of the pile with 10 points from five games.

However, Hein Vanhaezebrouck's side went down 1-0 in a shock loss to Anorthosis Famagusta on the last matchday and are looking to recover from the same.

Flora, meanwhile, are third in the group with five points, trailing Partizan by two points as the race for a spot in the preliminary knockout round has become intense.

Flora, Partizan and Anorthosis are all still in the race to finish second and it will be interesting to see who joins Gent in the next round.

The September reverse between the sides was their first-ever clash in Europe.

Gent secured a 1-0 victory thanks to Darko Lemajic's strike in the 54th minute.

Full TimeFlora 0-1 GentAn unfortunate result for Flora in their 1st ever European game. A good performance nonetheless with plenty of opportunities to score. Man of the match for me is Matvei Igonen, he kept the score low and kept Flora in the game. 🇪🇪⚽️🇪🇪⚽️🟢⚪️🟢⚪️

Top-scorer Rauno Sappinen was rested for their cup game on Sunday, and did not feature in their matchday squad at all.

He'll definitely be reinstated back into the starting XI, while key players like Henrik Purg and Markus Poom, who came off the bench in the weekend's match, are likely to start on Thursday.
