Galatasaray manager Cesare Prandelli is expected to drop Burak Yılmaz from the starting lineup in the up-and-coming game against Trabzonspor according to Eurosport Turkey.

In form striker Umut Bulut is expected to start ahead of Yılmaz.

Bulut has two goals and an assist in Galatasaray’s last three games, Yılmaz meanwhile has a goal and an assist in his last three appearances.

Yılmaz has 56 goals and 19 assists in 97 appearances for Galatasaray since joining on a €5 million move from Trabzonspor in 2012.

Sabri Sarıoğlu who was promoted to the first-team following the recent presidential election of Duygun Yavusuvat is expected to start again for the Lions.

Prandelli will also have Olcan Adın available after serving his suspension.

The former Italian national team manager has made a name for himself as an unpredictable coach.

Prandelli has used a different starting lineup 15 times already this season and used countless other formations including 3-5-2, 4-3-1-2 and 4-4-1-1 to name but a few.
