Markovic unlikely to play again this season
Liverpool forward Lazar Markovic's nightmare season is showing no sign of easing after the Serbia international suffered his third hamstring injury of the season. The 22-year-old is currently on a season-long loan at Fenerbahce and is expected to return to Liverpool at the end of the season. The Turkish newspaper Milliyet stated that Markovic has traveled to Portugal in order to be treated by Porto's medical team. Markovic has missed 96 days due to injuries and been forced to miss 20 games for Fenerbahce as a result.

The Super League is the main national football competition in Turkey. The league consists of 18 teams. During the season, each team plays twice against each opponent on a home and away basis. So, the total number of games per team is 34. The points allocation system follows the international standard with three points for a victory and one for a tie. The club with the most points at the conclusion of the season becomes the Turkish champion.
The top two teams in the Super League also qualify for the UEFA Champions League, with the Turkish champion proceeding directly to the group stage. The second-place team enters in the second qualifying round of Europe's top football competition. At the end of each season, the bottom three teams of the Turkish Super League are directly relegated to the Second Division (Second League A). The top three finishers of the Turkish Second Division move into the Super League where they will compete in the next campaign.
