Arda Kilic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Sergio, Shapi Suleymanov and Alexis Pérez.

With a completely injury-free group to choose from, the İstanbul Başakşehir boss Emre Belözoğlu has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash.
We believe that Giresunspor will have to play well to hit the back of the net against this İstanbul Başakşehir side who we reckon will just have the edge.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning score for İstanbul Başakşehir after 90 minutes.
