ANELE Ngcongca and his Belgian side, Genk, have already won through to the knockout stages of the Europa League, but there is still plenty to play for in their final group game against Basel tonight.

Genk need only a draw to confirm top spot in their pool and advance to the knockout stages as one of the seeded teams. Italian giants Inter Milan and Napoli, as well as English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur look likely to finish as runners-up in their pools and could be potential opponents in the next round.

Ngcongca is in his fourth successive season of European club football, which includes the Champions League group stages last year, but they have yet to reach the knockout stages.

It is already "game over" for May Mahlangu's Helsingborgs, who need to win away at Dutch side FC Twente to avoid the wooden spoon in Group L.

It could be a last game for the Swedes for Mahlangu if he gets his wish of a January move from the club. He will have a while to recover before he is likely to join the Bafana Bafana squad for a pre-Christmas training camp in Durban ahead of Afcon.
