Man City ace benched again ahead of Super Lig clash for Galatasaray

Man City star hoping for first start of the season for Super Lig giants

League leaders Galatasaray take on Karabukspor at the Turk Telekom Arena on Saturday 30 September.

Belgium international Jason Denayer joined the Lions on a one-year loan from Manchester City over the summer.

The 22-year-old has however, yet to make a single start for the league leaders.

Denayer will not get his first start against Karabukspor, he has instead been included on the bench.

With Serdar Aziz one booking away from a suspension, Denayer was expected to start however, Igor Tudor has decided not to disrupt with his winning formula.

Galatasaray will start with a full strength squad other than Tolga Cigerci who has been rested.

Seven goal striker Bafetimbi Gomis will start upfront and Feghouli has also got the nod after an impressive display in the 2-1 win over Bursaspor.

The Lions have faced Karabukspor 18 times and have won 10 of those games but last season the visitors won both games – coincidently with current Galatasaray boss Igor Tudor in charge.
