Fenerbahce Injuries & Team News
The big question mark is whether Mesut Ozil will start for Fenerbahce. He made his debut as a substitute in the last match and is pushing to be selected.
Luis Gustavo went off injured in the last match and is a doubt in midfield with a knee problem. Marcel Tisserand is out at centre-back for Fenerbahce.
Jose Sosa should return from illness is midfield but January signing Irfan Can Kahveci is still out.
Galatasaray sit just three points off Fenerbahce in the Super Lig table with a superior goal difference. They have the league’s best defence with just 18 goals conceded.
After losing to title rivals Besiktas in mid-January, Gala have responded strongly. They thrashed Denizlispor 6-1 at home before a hard fought 1-0 win at Yeni Malatyaspor thanks to Ryan Babel’s 88th minute goal.
They then won 2-1 at Gaziantep with debutant Henry Onyekuru scoring twice.
In their last match, Galatasaray beat Istanbul Basaksehir 3-0. Onyekuru found himself on the scoresheet yet again just before the break. Ryan Donk scored the second while Mostafa Mohamed landed a late penalty, which Onyekuru won, to seal the match in style.
Galatasaray Injuries & Team News
Galatasaray made two deadline day signings as DeAndre Yedlin joined from Newcastle and Gedson Fernandes arrived on loan from Benfica. Yedlin is pushing for a debut at right-back but Gedson has COVID-19 and misses out.
Radamel Falcao was expected to depart in January but remained with the club. He is still injured in attack.
Sofiane Feghouli is doubtful in midfield while coach Fatih Terim is also without defenders Sener Ozbayrakli, Omar Elabdellaoui and Emre Tasdemir.
