Lions boss Hamza Hamzaoğlu is expected to start with Çolak alongside team captain Selçuk Inan.

Turkish international Hamit Altıntop could however, get the nod ahead of Çolak.

Galatasaray will welcome back in form playmaker Wesley Sneijder who missed the 1-0 win over Gaziantepspor due to suspension.

Lions defender Semih Kaya has recovered from injury and returned to training but remains an injury doubt against Akhisar.

Kaya could be rushed back into the first team sooner than expected following the suspension of centre-back Aurelian Chedjou.

Galatasaray are currently second on goal difference, Beşiktaş are first and Fenerbahçe are just one point behind in third place.

Akhisar are currently 11th and have won their last two consecutive home games in the league.
