In yet another edition of the fierce Kıtalararası Derbi, Fenerbahce welcome Galatasaray to the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium in Turkish Super Lig action on Sunday.

The meeting between the two Istanbul-based outfits has always produced memorable games and despite a noticeable gap between the two in the league standings, this should be a highly entertaining affair.

The hosts secured a 4-0 win against 15th-placed Kayserispor in their previous outing to extend their unbeaten run in the league to seven games. Galatasaray returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Faith Karagumruk.
