On Thursday evening, Zorya Luhansk go for the second game in the group stage of UEFA Europa League. Yuriy Vernydub’s men will face Basques from Athletic Bilbao in an attempt to gain the vital points.
It does not look like a walk in the park for both teams; Zorya could be still the same team that valiantly held out there at Old Trafford last year, and it still has zero points before this game. Athletic, on the other hand, is nothing but eager to defeat the less experienced opponent.
Both teams have recently played draws in their respective national leagues, so they should be hungry for victory, especially at the European arena.
The current ranking in Group J is as follows:
- Östersunds – 3 pts
- Athletic – 1
- Hertha BSC - 1
- Zorya – 0
