Sports Mole previews Thursday night's Europa League Group K clash between Feyenoord and CSKA Moscow, including predictions, team news and form guide.

Feyenoord and CSKA Moscow will resume their search for a first Europa League win of the group stages when they face off in Rotterdam on Thursday evening.

Group K is proving to be one of the most open of the pools so far, with only three points still separating top from bottom.

Match preview

As previous European Cup winners and two-time UEFA Cup champions, Feyenoord are the highest-profile team in Group K but nonetheless find themselves propping up the rest after two games.

A chastening 4-1 home defeat to Austrian side Wolfsberger AC on matchday two sent them tumbling to the bottom of the group as the only defeat any of the four teams have suffered in the four matches in that pool to date.

It came as a significant surprise too, with Feyenoord going into that match unbeaten in any competition since December 2019 - an impressive run even accounting for the fact that six months of that was spent out of action due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dick Advocaat's side made a swift return to winning ways at the weekend, though, hitting a 94th-minute winner to beat Emmen 3-2 and climb up to fifth in the Eredivisie following a string of draws before that.

European victories have been harder to come by; including the matchday one draw with Dinamo Zagreb and that loss to Wolfsberger, Feyenoord have now won only two of their last 17 matches in the Champions League or Europa League proper, losing 11 of those.

CSKA Moscow, by contrast, have seemingly improved their glaring weakness in European football by tightening things up at the back.

Having conceded 14 goals in their previous five Europa League games, the Russian outfit have since only shipped two from their last five outings - including draws against Zagreb and Wolfsberger so far this season.

That defensive improvement shines through in their away form too, with just one goal conceded in their last three such Europa League games, compared to 11 in their previous two before that.

Viktor Goncharenko's side have not exactly been entertainers so far this season with one goal scored and one conceded in their two outings to date, but victory on Thursday would send the Russian Premier League leaders a big step closer to the knockout rounds.

CSKA Moscow

Doubtful: Georgi Schennikov (muscle)

We say: Feyenoord 1-1 CSKA Moscow

Feyenoord will demand a response from the matchday two result, which fortunately for them did not prove too costly given results elsewhere. CSKA have made themselves a lot tougher to beat in Europe recently, though, so we can see yet another draw in Group K.
