FC Vorskla Poltava will need to find some attacking bite if they are to rescue their UEFA Europa League campaign as R. Standard de Liège visit Group B's bottom side.
• The teams drew 0-0 as they met for the first time in UEFA competition on 20 October, in what was Standard's debut contest against a Ukrainian side.
• Standard dominated the matchday three encounter at Maurice Dufrasne, but Serhiy Dolganskiy in the Vorskla goal made several saves to earn his side their first group stage point.
• Vorskla met Standard's Belgian rivals RSC Anderlecht in the second qualifying round of the 1997/98 UEFA Cup, losing both legs by the same 2-0 scoreline.
• A 2-1 defeat by Hannover 96 on matchday two ended Vorskla's four-game unbeaten run at home in Europe, which included three wins.
• Standard's record in their last 11 European away games is W2 D3 L6. Both of those wins were 3-1 scorelines: at Panathinaikos FC in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League round of 16, and at Helsingborgs IF in this season's UEFA Europa League play-offs.
• Standard are the only side who have yet to concede in this season's group stage.
• Vorskla, AEK Larnaca FC, ŠK Slovan Bratislava and FC Steaua Bucureşti are the lowest scoring teams in the group stage, with one goal each going into matchday four.
• Vorskla midfielder Roman Bezus was fouled 16 times during the first three matchdays – more than any other player in the competition. However, he will miss this game through suspension.
• Standard's only playing connection with Ukraine is former midfielder Serhiy Kovalenko, who played for the club from 2004 to 2007, scoring five goals in 44 appearances.
• Standard coach José Riga is competing in Europe for the first time. Born in Liege, he previously served as the club's joint-coach, alongside his predecessor Dominique D'Onofrio (from 2003 to 2005). Since then, he has undertaken roles in sole command of RAEC Mons (2005-08) and RCS Visé (2008-11), before returning to Standard in July 2011.
• Vorskla boss Mykola Pavlov won a Ukrainian title as FC Dynamo Kyiv coach in 1995/96, and guided both FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and FC Illychivets Mariupil in European games.
