Fenerbahce take on Lokomotiv Moscow in the Europa League Round of 32 second-leg clash need just a draw to progress to the next stage.

The Yellow Canaries will be without on-loan Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic and Portuguese international Raul Meireles as well as on-loan Porto defender Ba.

Former Manchester United duo Luis Nani and Robin van Persie will make the trip and both are expected to start.

Fenerbahce beat Lokomotiv 2-0 in the first-leg at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium to gain a key advantage in the tie.

The first-leg went ahead relatively event free considering the political context going into the clash. Relations between Russia and Turkey are at an all time low after Turkish forces shot down a Russian war plane near the Turkish-Syrian border.

There were however, a few incidents involving stones being thrown at the Lokomotiv team bus. Then there was of course an act of provocation from midfielder Dmitri Tarasov who took off his playing shirt to reveal a vest depicting Putin in a navy cap with the words “most polite president” printed below.

Full Fenerbahce squad:

Volkan Demirel, Fabiano Ribeiro, Ertuğrul Taşkıran, Bruno Alves, Simon Kjaer, Michal Kadlec, Caner Erkin, Hasan Ali Kaldırım, Gökhan Gönül, Şener Özbayraklı, Mehmet Topal, Josef de Souza, Ozan Tufan, Uygar Mert Zeybek, Ramazan Civelek, Volkan Şen, Alper Potuk, Luis Nani, Jose Fernandao ve Robin van Persie.
