The midfield duo are both injured for a match Turkey must win if they are to hold any hope of reaching the second round.
However, the absence of the pair is unlikely to pose a selection headache for coach Senol Gunes, as neither player has featured in Turkey's previous two games.
Meanwhile, Gunes is suffering from a lack of popularity back in his homeland with the majority of fans unhappy with his management.
Gunes's failure to construct a team capable of picking up more than one point from their opening two games has seen his popularity wane.
Goalkeeper Rustu Recber is once more being tipped for a summer exit from Fenerbahce.
Italian side Brescia are keen to land the smart shot-stopper and are prepared to offer giant striker Igli Tare in part-exchange.
However, Recber has repeatedly stated his desire to remain in Turkey, saying: "I will stay with Fenerbahce."
