Fenerbahce know they face a tough task, and they will have to be at their best if they are to progress from this Champions League 3rd qualifying stage 2nd leg clash in Romania against Vaslui on Wednesday evening.
Boss Aykut Kocaman watched the Turkish League runners up struggle to convert chances in the first leg last week, and will be hoping for much better, although the job in hand will be considerably harder in Romania.

Fenerbahce never really got going in Istanbul last week. Despite starting new signings Dirk Kuyt and Egemen Korkmaz, chances were few and far between; just 3 attempts on target in the whole match.
Vaslui’s counter attacking style proved very effective, and they reaped the rewards on 75 minutes- Liviu Antal’s precise bottom corner shot giving them the lead.
Fortunately for Fenerbahce, after a sustained period of pressure, Bekir Irtigun equalised with a header from Alex’s cross on 90 minutes.
Fenerbahce must now go for the victory, or at the very least a high scoring draw that will also see them through. The tie hangs in the balance and will be a very interesting watch, considering that Vaslui are normally very tight defensively at home.
Bet365 make the tie a very close call; Fenerbahce are very narrow favourites at odds of 11/8, with Vaslui a 19/10 chance and the draw priced at 23/10.
It goes without saying that Fenerbahce will want to return to European competition with a bang after last years ban due to match fixing charges, and a victory over Vaslui will be of the utmost importance to the visitors and their fans.
Vaslui will be encouraged by the way they dealt with Fenerbahce in Turkey, so this literally is an almost impossible tie to call. Vaslui are experiencing their first taste of Champions League action while Fenerbahce are a seasoned team at this level. Will the added experience be what turns this tie on it’s head?
