Trabzonspor to host Getafe for first win in group stage


Turkish football club Trabzonspor will take on Spanish opponents Getafe to get their first win in this season’s UEFA Europa League group stage on Thursday.

In Group C, Basel from Switzerland are on top with 10 points.

Krasnodar and Getafe have six points each as these two are competing to be in the next stage.

Top two clubs in each group will qualify for the Round of 32 in Europa League.
