THE TEAM NEWS
- Istanbul Basaksehir overturned a two-goal deficit to beat Sporting CP in dramatic fashion in extra time in the last round.

- Top scorer Crivelli - who was suspended for the second leg against Sporting - will resume his successful partnership with Ba up front.
Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Gunok; Junior Caicara, Skrtel, Ponck, Clichy; Visca, Tekdemir, Kahveci, Elia; Crivelli, Ba

- Winger Fischer made his comeback from injury in Sunday's defeat at home to Horsens and could be considered for a starting place.
- Long-term absentees Wind, Boilesen, Mudrazija and Andersen are unavailable while centre-back Sigurdsson is a doubt after missing Sunday's match.
