Akigo have had an underwhelming Super Lig campaign last term but it couldn’t overshadow the Cup success, as they beat Fenerbahce 3-2 in early May. They now hope for a stronger start and beating Rizespor will be a crucial task for Safet Susic and his men.

Rizespor, on the other hand, struggled to pick it up through their pre-season and we’ve seen them suffer three losses in their last three outings – which proved costly as they failed to bounce back and suffered a thriller 2-3 loss to Kasimpasa on Matchday 1, where they conceded three goals in the final 15 minutes.

Akhisar vs Rizespor Head-to-head

The sides have last met in February 2017, where Akhisarspor bagged a narrow 1-0 win at this ground.

The sides are almost even-steven in overall records, with Rizespor earning five wins, three draws and suffering four losses in 12 encounters.

We’ve seen just six goals in the sides’ last four head-to-head matchups.

Akhisar vs Rizespor Prediction

We do believe Akhisarspor have what it takes to turn this one their way but we should be in for another very narrow occasion, which has us going for a one-goal Winning Margin at 3.50.

We have seen both sides scoring and conceding goals but we’ve come to get used to narrow occasions and we do see this as another such game looming.

The home side could have to outgun the rivals to secure such a win, though, and we’ll thus also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.10.

This does feel generous after seeing both sides enjoy such contests early in the new season and many have rated this a very solid approach to the fixture by itself.
