They come into this match on the back of a 1-0 round four loss to leaders Lazio. Thy will fancy themselves as favorites in this one, and manager Lucien Favre will want his side to be on the attack from the very start. The fiery Mario Balotelli will lead their attack, with experienced hand Wesley Sneidjer pulling their strings in midfield.

Zulte-Waregem are third on the log with four points, just two behind Nice. A win would put them in the second qualification spot as they await Lazio in the final qualification round. They come from a 2-0 round four win over Vitesse. Marvin Baudry and Onur Kaya were on the scoresheet in that win, and will start together in this one too.
