Partizan host Anorthosis Famagusta at the Partizan Stadium in Belgrade in the final group fixture of the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

The Steamrollers are currently second in Group B with seven points from five games and are looking to book their place in the preliminary knockout round as Gent have already secured a last-16 place.

A draw would be enough for Aleksandar Stanojević's side to advance although Anorthosis are soaring in confidence following a victory against Gent in the last matchday.

The side, rock bottom in the group, were headed towards an early exit but now see a silver lining after causing a huge upset last month. The Blues and Whites now face another do-or-die clash and have everything to play for on Thursday.
