Tip Basaksehir FK - Alanyaspor
Fedor Kudryashov is expected to deputise for the injured Alexandru Epureanu. Demba Ba and Arda Turan, neither of whom were expected to start, are unavailable due to injury. Gokhan Inler is expected to deputise for the injured Emre. Mbilla Etame, who wasn't expected to start, is sidelined with injury. Ozan Tufan will continue to deputise for the injured Isaac Sackey. Istanbul Basaksehir are undefeated in 35 of their last 38 home matches (Super Lig). Alanyaspor have failed to win their last 5 away matches (Super Lig). Istanbul Basaksehir were top of the league with an eight-point advantage only a few weeks ago, but last weekend they watched Galatasaray crowned champions after a 2-1 defeat to Fatih Terim's side. Morale at the club is at an all-time low and they are unlikely to have a better chance to win the league in the short-term given the average age of their squad. Alanyaspor have been one of the form teams in the second half of the season. Under Yalcin, who has always been very successful at short-term appointments, they press all over the pitch and rely on gifted midfielders such as Karaca and Villafanez to create chances for Cisse to convert. Against a demoralised Basaksehir side that have guaranteed a second-place finish, an Alanyaspor win wouldn't come as a shock.
