Another 12 UEFA Europa League matches take place on the evening of Thursday 2nd December 2010, which will see the penultimate fixtures of groups D, E, F, J, K and L.
In Group K Liverpool travel to Bucharest knowing that a win will see them certain of qualification, while Napoli travel to Utrecht with the loser certain not to progress.
The tight Group D sees first placed Dinamo Zagreb travel to third placed Villareal with the sides separated by just one point. PAOK Salonika host club Bruges looking for a win to maintain the pressure on those two.
Group E might decided with one game remaining, tonight, as the top two teams face each other – BATE Borisov host Dynamo Kiev. A win for Kiev will claim joint top spot, and also ensure both teams qualify. The loser in FC Sheriff Tiraspol v AZ Alkmaar will be out.
Palermo v Sparta Prague is the important fixture in Group F, as anything but a win for Palermo will see Sparta qualify alongside CSKA Moscow, who host bottom club Lausanne Sports.
There’s a top of the table clash in the close Group J, as Paris Saint Germain host Sevilla knowing that their rivals for qualification, Borussia Dortmund, have a home fixture against pointless Karpaty Lviv – three points for Dortmund would see them level with Saint Germain and one point behind Sevilla – a win would provide vital breathing room for someone heading into the final round of group fixtures.
If Besiktas can pick up a victory away at CSKA Sofia, they are certain to qualify, along with Porto, who are already through Group L. Porto travel to Rapid Vienna. Both CSKA and Rapid Vienna need a win to keep alive their qualification hopes, so expect these games to produce exciting football, given goals.
