Feyenoord starts on Thursday in the home game in the Europa League against FC Porto with Renato Tapia in the base.

The Peruvian is the replacement for Orhun Kökçü in midfield, who fell ill on Sunday in the league match 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.
