Defending champions Galatasaray get their campaign underway at home to Kasimpasa. The Lions have bolstered their squad in the summer and one signing which caught the headlines was the capture of Burak Yilmaz from Trabzonspor for five million euros.

The prolific striker scored a phenomenal 55 goals in just 74 league appearances after joining Trabzonspor in 2010 and is a great addition to their squad. 

Fellow Istanbul based club Besiktas begin their assault on the title away to Istanbul BB. The Black Eagles will have been disappointed to finish fourth last term, but will no doubt be there or there abouts come the business end of the season.

Another side who'll fancy their chances in Turkey's top flight this season are Fenerbahçe, who signalled their intent with the capture of Juventus winger Milos Krasic for €7 million this month.

Fenerbahçe are away to Elazigspor on the opening day of the season.

Turkish Super Lig fixtures on Saturday, August 18:

Galatasaray v Kasimpasa
Gençlerbirligi v Antalyaspor
Gaziantepspor v Sivasspor
Eskisehirspor v Akhisar
Istanbul BB v Besiktas
