On-loan Man City defender Jason Denayer starts in the Intercontinental derby

Galatasaray take on arch rivals Fenerbahce in the Intercontinental derby at the Turk Telekom Arena hoping to turn around a nightmarish season.

The Istanbul giants are still in search of their first win under the stewardship of Jan Olde Riekerink who recently replaced Mustafa Denizli as head coach.

Riekerink has decided to start with on-loan Manchester City defender Jason Denayer as right-back alongside Turkish international Semih Kaya, Hakan Balta and Olcan Adin in the defensive back-four.

The 20-year-old defender has been one of the few players to have had a decent season for the Lions this season.

Denayer is expected to return to City following his loan spell at Galatasaray but the Premier League giants have sent him out on temporary moves for the last two seasons.

Former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola will be taking charge of City next season and it is yet to be seen whether he has plans for the young Belgium international.

Denayer has two assists in 14 appearances for the Istanbul giants in all competitions this season.
