Basaksehir head into their final Europa League Group J game needing a victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany to progress to the Round of 32.

The Istanbul based side are currently third in the group on seven points just one point behind leaders Roma who are ahead of Monchengladbach on goal difference.

Basaksehir need a victory to guarantee passage in the next round, a draw or defeat would see them crash out of the tournament.

Okan Buruk’s side will be without Mahmut Tekdemir, Fredrik Gulbrandsen, Martin Skrtel, Arda Turan, Robinho, Uğur Uçar, Gökhan İnler and Kerim Frei.
