Fenerbahce have enjoyed a strong start to the 2022-23 campaign in all competitions, and currently find themselves third in the Turkish Super Lig after the opening five games.

The team have won three of their encounters so far, with the last win coming against Kayserispor with goals from Joe Pedro and king joshua.

Jorge Jesus hopes to see that form continue at Europa Leauge on Thursday, especially as the club failed to qualify from the group stage last season.

In the 2021-22 campaign, Fenerbahce have only been able to win one of their six matches, and although they have moved to the Europa Conference League, this season they will want more.

The Turkish club looked confident in qualifying matches for this competition, having won three and drawn one in those games, showing the team’s confidence.

Last season, Dynamo kyiv did not participate in this competition because they were part of the Champions League, but they ended up finishing bottom of their group, which ended their European adventures.

Mircea Lucescu will want to see more of his team this time around, but they don’t head into this game in good shape based on recent performances.

His side were beaten 3-2 at the weekend by Zorya Luhansk in the Ukrainian Premier League, despite the fact that Vitaliy Buyalskyi and Vladyslav Vanat signed up on the score sheet.

In Europe, Dynamo Kyiv were lucky enough to advance to the Champions League again this season, but they were comfortably beaten 5-0 on aggregate by Benfica in their playoff game.

The club are currently in the relegation zone in terms of their league form, showing how difficult their start has been, which is why this game could be a welcome distraction.

After a 2-0 league win, there is a chance that Jesus will opt to make no changes to his Fenerbahce side who have looked impressive in the opening moments of this season.

Nazim Sangare is a player the Turkish team will miss, as he is currently sidelined with a cruciate ligament injury.

The visitors also have to deal with injury problems, with Denis Popov currently out of action with a shoulder problem that he had to deal with this summer.

At the other end of the field Vladyslav Supryaga is another player Dynamo Kyiv need to do without as he currently has a hip problem.

Possible starting line-up of Fenerbahçe:
Bayindir; Henrique, Szalai, Petroni; Alioski, Crespo, Arao, Kahveci, Kadioglu; Peter, king

Possible starting line-up of Dynamo Kyiv:
Bushchan; Kedziora, Zabarnyi, Syrota, Dubinchak; Kabayev, Andriyevskyi, Buyalskyi, Shepelev, Karavayev; Vanat

We say: Fenerbahçe 2-0 Dynamo Kyiv

This is the group opener, so the focus will be on just collecting points as quickly as possible.

However, Fenerbahce have been the stronger of the two teams when it comes to training in their respective leagues, and that could be the difference in this one.
