Sivasspor are missing Hakan Arslan and Fernando due to injury. Goiano meanwhile, is suspended.

The home side do have in-form striker Mustapha Yatabare available.

Denizlispor are 11th in the league but not technically out of relegation trouble just yet.

They do not however, travel well and have not won any of their last five away games.

Prediction: Sivasspor Win
