Kenneth Omeruo

Kasımpaşa welcome Gençlerbirliği to the Recep Tayyıp Erdoğan stadium knowing that a victory would be enough to take them into joint third place – alongside Galatasaray and Başakşehir on 34 points.

On-loan Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo will start for the Istanbul minnows. The Nigerian international has established himself as a key member of the Kasımpaşa midfield and has made 14 appearances already this season.

The Istanbul based side have the best defensive record in the league having conceded just 17 goals this season.


Gençlerbirliği are also in decent form with recently appointed manager Ibrahim Üzülmez – fifth manager this season – having guided his side to two consecutive victories.
