Team News

  • Vasiliy Pryima and Vladyslav Kalitvintsev are still sidelined for the home side, who can otherwise name their normal XI.
  • Ruslan Babenko was sent off at the weekend but is available if called upon here.
  • Unai Núñez returns for Athletic Club's final group match after serving a suspension in their last Europa League outing.
  • Ander Iturraspe is unlikely to feature on Thursday after coming off in the first half of their 0-0 draw with Real Madrid on Saturday.
  • Oscar de Marcos could make his first Europa League appearance in the group stages after returning from injury.
  • Beñat Etxebarria and Iker Muniain remain long-term absentees.

Prediction

  • Zorya have to beat Athletic Club on Thursday to qualify from Group J in second, while a point would be good enough for Athletic Club to book their name in the next round. The Spanish side can also top Group J if they win and Oestersunds FK lose to Hertha Berlin, who have already been eliminated.
  • Neither side are in good form heading into this match. Zorya have only won one of their last eight in all competitions, while Athletic Club only have three wins from their last 18 competitive outings. However, two of those have come in the Europa League.
  • It's difficult to see Athletic Club coming away from this tough conditions with three points seeing as they have failed to win their last nine on the road. But can they return to Spain with an important point?
