After saying good bye  to Champions League, Fenerbahce will play their first match in the Europa Cup..

Fener's Senegal striker Moussa Sow knows what to expect from Marseille, having played in France - the country of his birth and which he represented at under-21 level - for six years with Rennes, Sedan and Lille.
"First of all, this match will not be easy," he told reporters . I think it will be difficult. Marseille have started well in the league this year and won five games in a row."
The 10million euro signing has faced criticism this season after scoring only twice in five games and acknowledged: "I came to Fenerbahce to score goals and that is what they signed me for.
"But a striker is not only there to score goals, but also to play deeper, make key passes and help the team as a whole."
Dirk Kuyt and Mehmet Topal have joined Milos Krasic on Fener's injury list, and there are also doubts over Serdar Kesimal and Egemen Korkmaz.
