The Brazilian play-maker is yet to impress for Fenerbahce having contributed no goals or assists in five Super League appearances.
The availability of Emanuel Emenike has been put under question after the Nigerian international had to endure a 1,500km coach journey before taking an eight hour flight to Istanbul from Nigeria.
Having missed training this week and arriving tired, Emienike is expected to start on the bench for Fenerbahce.
Fenerbahce’s probable starting XI:
Volkan Demirel, Gökhan Gönül, Alves, Kadlec, Caner Erkin, Mehmet Topal, Emre Belözoğlu, Kuyt, Diego, Alper Potuk, Webo
