Galatasaray defender Aurelian Chedjou has been ruled out of the Istanbul derby against Beşiktaş according to Fanatik.
The Cameroon international has missed the Lions last three games with injury.
Ironically Galatasaray have enjoyed their best defensive performances over the last five games.
The Istanbul giants have kept a clean sheet in their last five consecutive league games and are first in the Süper Lig, three points clear of second placed Fenerbahçe with two games left to play.
Chedjou did expect to recover in time for the Beşiktaş derby next week.
“I feel good, I will train and see what happens, I do expect to play in the derby next week,” Chedjou told the Milliyet.
Galatasaray will however, welcome back the return of Selçuk Inan who returns from injury and have no other missing players other than long term absentee Aydın Yılmaz.
The Lions have kept a clean sheet in their last five league games despite having the worst defensive record in the top four.
