Shakhtar – Fenerbahce: Probable Line-ups

Turkey League

Fenerbahçe take on Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League play-off second-leg tie at the Arena Lviv stadium today needed a score draw or a win to progress to the final play-off stages.

Vitor Pereira is expected to start with the same line-up as the previous game with the only exception being Şener Özbayraklı replacing Hasan Ali Kaldırım as right-back and Portuguese international Raul Meireles starting ahead of Mehmet Topal.

Topal’s situation will become clear closer towards kick-off. The Turkish international picked up a slight knock during training a few days ago but could recover in time for the Shakhtar match.

Former Manchester United star Robin van Persie is expected to come off the bench as he did in the first-leg. The 31-year-old is not 100 percent match fit yet but Pereira. The Yellow Canaries other ex United player Luis Nani is almost certain to start.
