Fenerbahçe welcome Rizespor to the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium hoping to keep their spot at the top of the Turkish Super League table with another home victory.

Fenerbahçe moved into first place last week, but do have a game in hand over second placed Beşiktaş.

The Yellow Canaries are, however, starting to gel and move through the gears after a slow start to the season.


Rizespor have made things awkward for the traditional big four this season beating Trabzonspor, Galatasaray and drawing with Fenerbahçe, but the Yellow Canaries do have the best home record in the league.

Fenerbahçe boss Vitor Pereira has decided to give Fernandao the nod ahead of former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.

On-loan Liverpool striker Lazar Markovic will start again after scoring the winning goal in the Turkish Cup midweek.
