Meanwhile, the visitors sit top of the pile in the Turkish Super Lig and they will be aiming to keep their unbeaten record intact.
Fatih Karagumruk head into the weekend in a fine run of form after suffering just one defeat in their last six games.
Although, before last weekend's meeting they had embarked on a three-game winless run, but that came to an end in style thanks to a 3-1 victory away to Kasimpasa.
It was an electric start for the visitors with all three goals coming in the opening 27 minutes, and they opened the scoring in the first minute of the game, much to Tomas Brecka's misfortune with the defender putting the ball into his own net.
Yann Karamoh also struck for Karagumruk before Aleksandar Pesic dispatched his spot kick, and despite pulling a goal back before the break, Kasimpasa could not prevent Francesco Farioli's side from claiming all three points.
Like their opponents, Fatih Karagumruk will put their own unbeaten record on the line on Sunday with the hosts yet to lose on home soil this term.
The side attempting to become the first team to win at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium this season are Trabzonspor, and their impressive start to the campaign has got their fans dreaming of a first Turkish Super Lig title since 1984.
They are yet to taste defeat this season, and have racked up 10 victories in their 13 league games, which has given Abdullah Avci's side a seven-point cushion at the top ahead of the weekend's fixtures.
Sunday's visitors have swept aside all challengers in recent weeks, winning their last six matches, which included a 3-0 thrashing of Gaziantep last time out.
Avci's men have found the net with ease this season, scoring 27 goals in their 13 league encounters - the highest tally in the Turkish Super Lig.
Ugurcan Cakir served his one-match suspension last weekend, and the goalkeeper will come back into the starting lineup for the visitors.
Fatih Karagumruk possible starting lineup:
Viviano; Ahmetoglu, Luckassen, Baniya, Erkin; Durmaz, Tatli, Bertolacci; Mor, Karamoh, Pesic
Trabzonspor possible starting lineup:
Cakir; Tokoz, Edgar le, Hugo, Trondsen; Siopis, Ozdemir, Omur; Djaniny, Nwakaeme, Cornelius
We say: Fatih Karagumruk 1-3 Trabzonspor
Despite their excellent home record, we think that Karagumruk will struggle on Sunday, when they face a side that are in imperious form, and we believe Trabzonspor have enough quality to claim their seventh consecutive victory.
