Feyenoord v Porto Preview
The Feyenoord can not at all satisfied with the result obtained in his debut of the fas of groups to fall to Glasgow Rangers 1-0. The team led by Stam carried the weight of the match in Scotland but the lack of punch condemned him to go empty. In the Eredivisie has not had a regular start having only added eight points in the three days played so far. Now he receives one of the big shot fish in the competition and will need a good result if he still wants to keep hoping to sneak into the final stages. Orkun Kökcü, Nicolai Jorgensen and Sven van Beek seem to miss the match due to injury.
For its part, Porto could not seal its presence in the Champions League in the qualifying rounds and has had to settle for a tournament that keeps very good memories. The set of Sergio Conceicao fell to Krasnodar on your chance to qualify for the top competition at club level and in their first clash of the Europa League managed to beat Young Boys 2-1 in a match where Tiquinho was on hand to score both. With eight consecutive victories, Porto arrives at the game with fairly high morale and we will see if they can extend this good dynamic by beating a somewhat irregular Feyenoord. Sérgio Oliveira, Iker Casillas, Fabiano and Marius Mouandilmadji will miss the trip to Rotterdam due to injury.
