Istanbul Basaksehir welcome Galatasaray for what should be a hotly contested derby in the Turkish Super Lig on Sunday evening.
Okan Buruk’s team are seeking a first league title and currently lead the championship with six matches remaining this season albeit their lead over second place Trabzonspor is just a single point.
Galatasaray, the defending champions who denied Başakşehir that inaugural success, have an outside chance to secure back-to-back crowns but need all three points to catapult them back into contention.
