Fenerbahçe manager Ismail Kartal believes the home fans will create a great atmosphere against Galatasaray in the Intercontinental derby.
“We will try to get the best out of the 12th man, they will provide us extra energy, extra motivation and help us win,” Kartal told NTV Spor.
“We are not the ones who will get intimidated, the pressure will make Galatasaray players legs shake.”
Fenerbahçe have not lost against Galatasaray at the Şürkrü Saracoğlu stadium since 1999.
Galatasaray are currently first in the Süper Lig, four points ahead of third placed Fenerbahçe.
The Yellow Canaries have dropped five points in their last two games and cannot afford another loss.
The Lions would move seven points clear of Fenerbahçe with a win.
Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray have both won the Süper Lig 19 times. Both sides are in a race to make history and win the league for the 20th time however, second placed Beşiktaş are only three points behind the Lions and very much in the title race.
