Fenerbahce v Celtic: confrimed Line Ups – Van Persie ruled out

Turkey League

Fenerbahçe take on the Scottish Premier League champions Celtic tonight, needing a win to book a place in the Europa League Round of 32.

A draw could be enough for the Istanbul Giants to book their play in the next round should Ajax drop points against Molde in the other Group A game.

The Yellow Canaries do have a number of key absentees including Luis Nani, Robin van Persie and Simon Kjaer who are both out suspended.


Manager Vitor Pereira has given on-loan Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic the nod ahead of the suspended Nani.

Celtic are already out of the competition after picking up just two points from their first five games.
