Bafetimbi Gomis is the lead goal scorer with 9 goals in 8 matches. He scored both the goals in the 2-0 win over Konyaspur last Friday. Eren Derdiyok substituted Gomis later in the match due to a muscle strain but Gomis is now alright for Sunday’s clash.
In the game against Konyaspur, Garry Rodrigues was pulled out with an injury and replaced by Inan, who is expected to be in the playing IX on Sunday.
Placed 5th on the table with 14 points, Fenerbahce has won four games, lost two, and drawn two thus far. They are coming off a 3-1 win over Yeni Malatyaspor with goals from Hasan Ali Kaldirim, Ozan Tufan, and Giuliano.
French Mathieu Valbuena leads the team in scoring with 3 goals of 8 matches along with Giuliano. Other big names in the team include Carlos Kameni, Mauricio Isla, Martin Skrtl, Mathieu Valbuena, Robin van Persie, and Roberto Soldado.
Soldado ineffectiveness in the season thus far was met with a replacement in last week’s win by Brazilian Fernandão. Fernandão may get some more on Sunday.
Fenerbahce eight points behind Galatasaray in the season need to win this match at all cost if want to have any chance of challenging the title.
