Fenerbahce v Basaksehir: Confirmed Starting Line Ups – Robin van Pesie fails to make team

Fenerbahçe take on Başakşehir in the mini Istanbul derby hoping to make up lost ground against first place Beşiktaş who take on Galatasaray in the big Istanbul derby tomorrow.

The Yellow Canaries are currently two points behind Beşiktaş but despite having one of the best home records in the league they did play in Europe on Thursday and will be taking on one of the best defensive sides in the league.

Fenerbahçe boss Vitor Pereira has decided to leave Robin van Persie out of the team after failing a late fitness test but former Manchester United winger Luis Nani will start.


On-loan Liverpool winger will not start despite scoring the goal that saw Fenerbahçe book a place in the Europa League Round of 32 against Celtic on Thursday.
