Khalid Boutaib will be eager to re-ignite his scoring boots following a memorable 2017, that ended with goals in three successive league fixtures.

The 30-year-old found the back of the net against Göztepe, Galatasaray and Kayserispor towards the end of last year - a year that his goals helped Morocco qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Boutaib failed to hit the back of the net in a goalless draw against Osmanlispor in Yeni Malatyaspor's opening game of 2018, but he has a chance to change all that against Sivasspor this Sunday.

The Atlas Lions forward has scored nine goals in 17 league appearances this season - one more that fellow African Emmanuel Adebayor.
