Fenerbahçe take on Bursaspor at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium hoping to make up for their disappointing 3-1 home defeat against Molde in the Europa League.

Bursaspor meanwhile won their first game of the season last week against Gençlerbirliği but will need more time to settle considering they sold most key players over the summer including four transfers to Fenerbahçe.

Former Bursaspor players Şener Özbayraklı, Ozan Tufan and Fernandao are expected to start while Volkan Şen has been included in the team but will be on the bench.

On-loan Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic will get his first start of the season while former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has been dropped after a poor performance midweek.

Portuguese international Bruno Alves returns to the Fenerbahçe team after recovering from injury but the Yellow Canaries will be without Josef de Souza, Ba and Diego Ribas.
