His international teammate, Etebo will however battle Arda Turan and Emre Kilinc for a place in a three-man midfield.

He started the team’s last game – a 3-0 home win over Istanbul Basaksehir – but was replaced in the second half.

The midfielder, who is on loan from English Championship side Stoke City, has made 12 appearances in the league thus far.

Bright Osayi-Samuel is also expected to feature for Fenerbahce in the game.
