Maurice Edu and Bursaspor face an important road test with major implications on Europa League qualification when they visit Kasimpasa on Sunday.

Edu and Bursaspor are currently tied with Kasımpaşa in fourth place but trail by goal differential and a road win would put them into good position when they host third place Beşiktaş next week.

Edu figures to start in the center of midfield following his return from international duty with the USMNT this week ahead of Sunday's match. He'll look to support Bursaspor's talented attacking midfielder's Pablo Batalla and Fernando Belluschi.

Kasımpaşa are paced by Nigerian striker Kalu Uche, who leads the team with 15 goals this season, by far the highest total of his career and good enough for second in the league.

The Green Crocodiles may be without defender Serder Aziz, who was injured in training when he collided with Belluschi and was sent for an MRI on Wednesday.

Kasımpaşa will be without Angolan striker Djalma Campos, who is recovering from a long-term injury.
