Galatasaray take on Benfica in the Europa League Round of 32 second-leg clash at the Luz Stadium hoping to pull off a shock upset and overturn the 2-1 aggregate scoreline.

The Lions lost the first game 2-1 at the Turk Telekom Arena giving themselves an uphill struggle to try and book a place in the next round.

Galatasaray will be without five players tonight including Fernando who is suspended and Martin Linnes who is injured.

Meanwhile, Kostas Mitroglou, Semih Kaya and Emre Tasdemir will not feature as they were not included in the UEFA squad list.

Everton loanee Henry Onyekuru is almost certain to start on the wing with the in-form Sofiane Feghouli on the other flank and Younes Belhanda playing behind Mbaye Diagne upfront.

Stoke City loanee Badou Ndiaye is likely to play in midfield alongside Ryan Donk who will fill in for Fernando.
