Fenerbahce – Anderlecht: Predicted Lineups – Islam Slimani & Andre Ayew Both Set To Start

Jeremain Lens

Fenerbahce take on Anderlecht in the Europa League Group D at the Sukru Saracoglu in their Match Day 4 clash.

The Yellow Canaries head into the clash in second position on four points knowing that a win would open up a six-point gap with last placed Anderlecht.

The Istanbul giants will be without Mehmet Topal, Roberto Soldado and Mehmet Ekici.

Leicester City loanee Islam Slimani is match fit and could get the nod upfront with Soldado out.

Additionally, Swansea City loanee Andre Ayew is also likely to start alongside Valbuena who was the star of the show in the derby.

The midfield is likely to be comprised of eighteen-year-old Eljif Elmas and Jailson.

Fenerbahce have been in poor form domestically culminating with Phillip Cocu getting sacked as manager.

Cocu’s assistant manager Erwin Koeman has taken charge as temporary head coach getting off to a decent start holding Galatasaray to a 2-2 draw in the Intercontinental Derby at the Turk Telekom Arena last Friday.
