      Can Fenerbahce end their struggles with a result in Belgium this week? The visitors aren’t fulfilling their potential in the Super Lig, but they’re aiming for three points in this Europa League trip. Meanwhile, the hosts face a make or break clash in this one, after making a slow start to life in group D. Their league campaign so far has been solid, but can they transfer that form across to Europe? The hosts will see a vulnerable Fenerbahce side as the perfect opportunity to get off and running in this competition, but the visitors can’t be written off that easily.

      Anderlecht have claimed back to back league wins since their last European outing, but so far they are struggling to keep the pace in Europe, sitting bottom with zero points after losses to Dinamo Zagreb and Spartak Trnava. Those losses have piled pressure onto the Belgians, who could well be out of the running for a top two finish if they lose here. Will this clash be a turning point for Anderlecht, or could their European struggles be about to get even worse?

      Many are writing Fenerbahce off here, and the Turkish side do make this visit with the odds against them. Anderlecht are the favourites, but the visitors are sitting higher in the standings. They got their European campaign up and running with a win over Spartak Trnava last time out, and their league form has been boosted in the aftermath of that win. While they still sit third from bottom in the Super Lig, things have been improving for Fener of late, and that puts them in contention for a result here.

      Since their last European game, Fener are now unbeaten in four matches. They followed that win up with a draw against title challengers Istanbul Basaksehir – one of their toughest domestic clashes of the season. They’re showing signs of recovery, so pricing them so high for this visit to Brussels does feel like a bit much. After all, the visitors have bags of experience and they’ll still harbour hopes of getting out of this group, so they need to get something against the bottom side.

      The hosts may be coming off the back of league wins, but their form in Europe is dreadful. After losing their opening two games in this group, they’re now four games without a win in Europe. The hosts have one win in their last four home matches, and even that clash with Cercle Brugge saw them concede twice. We see an opportunity for Fenerbahce here, so we’re backing them on the Double Chance market.
