Fenerbahce vs Zimbru Lineups and Team News


This will be the first official match of the new season for Fenerbahce. They salvaged last season with the Turkish Cup triumph but the general form was pretty poor all campaign. Kept scoring lots of goals but defensively had serious problems.

Have an abundance of talent in their ranks and in attack look even more dangerous than last term. Veteran striker Dzeko joined this summer but he might miss the coming match as he’s behind with his fitness. Batshuayi hopes to continue his great form from last season.


Zimbru from Moldova ranked 132nd in the latest UEFA club rankings, were lucky to eliminate amateurs La Florita from San Marino in the last qualifying round. Zimbru drew 1-1 away before narrowly edging the second leg at home 1-0. Zimbru’s domestic season is yet to start.

Zimbru lost some key players in the summer. The main goalie Giannokopoulos, star playmaker Castro and 3 more regulars are no longer in the club. Yet to sign any adequate replacements so the team looks much weaker right now.
