Maurice Edu looks to return from his one match suspension as Bursaspor take on Fenerbahçe on Sunday.
Bursaspor are coming off a 1-0 win over Sivasspor, a match in which Edu missed due to picking up two yellow cards the week before in 2-1 loss at Gaziantepspor. They'll travel to the always hostile Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium this weekend.
Fenerbahçe lost to Beşiktaş 3-2 last week thanks to a 90th minute goal by Olcay Şahan last week, which ended a three match winning streak.
The Sarı Kanaryalar currently sit three points ahead of Edu and Bursaspor in third place and a win would see them move up into a tie for third place.
Bursaspor are lead by red hot Argentine Pablo Batalla, who has scored in four straight matches and has 10 total goals this season. Fenerbahçe are lead by Moussa Sow, who has 12 goals this season and former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt, who painfully scored an own goal last week in their loss.
Bursaspor will be without Chilean striker Sebastian Pinto, who suffered a training injury last week and will miss this weekend's match. Fenerbahçe will be without 17 year old defender Recep Niyaz, who trained with the Turkish U18 team this week.
