Galatasaray take on Mersin Idman Yurdu on the road as they attempt to get their season back on track after a rocky few weeks.

The reigning Super League champions sold star striker Burak Yilmaz to Beijing Goaon last week and to make matters worse fellow striker Sinan Gumus picked up an injury last week.

Lukas Podolski was expected to miss the game with injury but passed a late fitness test and has been included in the squad.

Umut Bulut is the Lions only other available forward going into the Mersin clash.

Galatasaray are currently in joint third place along with Basaksehir but are 15 points behind league leaders Fenerbahce.

Full Galatasaray squad:
Fernando Muslera, Bilal Kısa, Yasin Öztekin, Selçuk İnan, Umut Bulut, Wesley Sneijder, Lukas Podolski, Jose Rodriguez, Ryan Donk, Aurelien Chedjou, Hakan Balta, Lionel Carole, Semih Kaya, Martin Linnes, Koray Günter, Olcan Adın, Sabri Sarıoğlu, Jason Denayer, Eray İşcan, Cenk Gönen.
