Feyenoord starts on Thursday in the home game in the Europa League against FC Porto with Renato Tapia in the base. At AZ, which receives Manchester United, Yukinari Sugawara is the replacement for the suspended Jonas Svensson.

In midfield, Tapia is the replacement for Orhun Kökçü, who fell ill on Sunday in the league game against FC Twente (5-1 win). Trainer Jaap Stam leaves his team unchanged.

That means that Tapia, who entered the field just before half-time against Twente, is joined by Leroy Fer and Jens Toornstra. Steven Berghuis, Luis Sinisterra and Sam Larsson are at the front.

Goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer faces the defenders Rick Karsdorp, Eric Botteghin, Edgar Ié and Ridgeciano Haps.

Feyenoord started the group stage of the Europa League two weeks ago with a 1-0 defeat at Rangers FC. Porto won 2-1 against Young Boys.

The match between Feyenoord and FC Porto starts on Thursday at 6.55 p.m. The Russian Sergey Karasev is the referee in De Kuip.

Setup Feyenoord: Vermeer; Karsdorp, Botteghin, Ié, Haps; Tapia, Fer, Toornstra; Mountain house, Sinisterra, Larsson.

FC Porto line-up: Marchesín; Manafa, Pepe, Marcano, Telles; Otávio, Danilo, Uribe, Nakajima; Marega, Zé Luís.

Sugawara replaces Svensson at AZ

AZ starts, also at 6.55 p.m., in the Hague at the Europa League meeting with Manchester United. The Alkmaarders will compete against the English superpower in the expected line-up.

Yukinari Sugawara is the only new name in the basic formation of trainer Arne Slot compared to the first group duel. The Japanese right back replaces Jonas Svensson, who received a red card against Partizan Belgrade (2-2) two weeks ago and is therefore suspended.

At Manchester United, trainer Ole Gunnar keeps Solskaer Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard on the bench. The forefront is formed by Mason Greenwood and Daniel James.

Setup AZ: Bizot; Sugawara, Vlaar, Wuytens, Wijndal; Midtsjø, De Wit, Koopmeiners; Idrissi, Boadu, Stengs.
