Match background Only this chapter

Without a point and out of contention, Gent will want their last European home game of the season to be a victorious one as they take on a Slovan Liberec side who have lost their last three Group L fixtures and must win in Belgium to keep alive their faint hopes of further progress.

• While Gent were losing twice to Crvena zvezda on Matchdays 3 and 4 (1-2 a, 0-2 h), Liberec also found Hoffenheim too hot to handle, succumbing to their heaviest European defeat in the first encounter (0-5 a) before going down 0-2 at home. They are therefore nine points behind their German conquerors – who have now qualified – and six adrift of the Serbian champions, who beat them 5-1 in Belgrade on Matchday 2, with two games to play.

Previous meetings
• Liberec's first UEFA match against Belgian opposition brought a 1-0 victory over Gent on Matchday 1, striker Abdulla Yusuf Helal scoring the decisive goal on 29 minutes.

• Gent's only other encounters with a Czech side came against Zlín in the 2005 UEFA Intertoto Cup second round, where a 1-0 aggregate win (1-0 h, 0-0 a) took them through.

Form guide
• Runners-up in the abbreviated 2019/20 Belgian First Division A behind Club Brugge, Gent also reached the UEFA Europa League round of 32, where they went out to Roma (0-1 a, 1-1 h) having come through three qualifying rounds before finishing top of a section including Wolfsburg, St-Étienne and Olexandriya.

• Gent are competing in Europe for the sixth successive season, extending the longest sequence in the club's history. They entered the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League under new coach Wim De Decker in the third qualifying round, where they overcame Rapid Wien 2-1 at home, but were then beaten home and away by Dynamo Kyiv in the play-offs (1-2 h, 0-3 a), which confirmed a fourth participation in the UEFA Europa League group stage. They have reached the knockout phase twice, in 2016/17 and last season, having missed the cut on their first appearance in 2010/11 as well as this one.

• Gent were unbeaten in 13 European home games against foreign opposition (W8 D5), winning five out of seven in 2019/20, before this season's three successive losses against Dynamo, Hoffenheim and Crvena zvezda, the latter defeat only their third in 11 UEFA Europa League group stage home matches (W5 D3).

• Liberec finished fifth in last season's Czech Liga and also reached the cup final, which they lost 2-1 to Sparta Praha. The league placing earned the club a return to UEFA competition after a three-season absence.

• Having kicked off their 2020/21 UEFA Europa League campaign with away wins at Riteriai (5-1) and FCSB (2-0), Pavel Hoftych's side secured the club's fourth appearance in the competition's group stage by overcoming APOEL 1-0 at home in the play-offs. Liberec came through their group at the first attempt in 2013/14, finishing second behind eventual winners Sevilla before losing in the round of 32 to AZ Alkmaar, but failed to make further progress in both 2015/16 (third place) and 2016/17 (fourth).

• Although Liberec have lost only five of their 12 away fixtures in the UEFA Europa League proper, winning three, all the defeats have come in the last six matches (D1), with 19 goals conceded over that stretch and just four scored. They have shipped ten goals already on their Group L travels.

Links and trivia
• Gent's Cameroon international defender Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui was a Slavia Praha player from 2016 to 2019, winning two league titles and two Czech Cups.

• Liberec coach Hoftych was on the Zlín coaching staff when they lost to Gent in the 2005 UEFA Intertoto Cup.

• Liberec's Taras Kacharaba and Gent's Roman Yaremchuk played together for various Ukrainian national youth teams.
