Ankaragucu vs Rizespor Prediction & Match Preview

Ankaragucu vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 13 March 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Eryaman Stadium (Ankara)

Ankaragucu is waiting for the imminent relegation to 1. Lig. With just 20 points of their 25 matches, they are second to last in the table. Currently, they have 3 matches losing run going on in the competition. The deficiency in home wins is the major reason for their downfall.

Since both sides are desperate for a win we can be sure to witness a closely contested game at Ankara.

Ankaragucu vs Rizespor: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Both teams scored in 4 of their last 5 meetings in all competitions.
  • Rizespor has scored at least a goal in 7 previous clashes.
  • The hosts previously won this fixture back in 2017 away from home.

  • The visitors are unbeaten in their last 2 trips to this ground.

Ankaragucu vs Rizespor: Prediction

The team from Ankara is having a hard time scoring this season. They are among the two clubs which have scored the least amount of goals this year. Their shabby defense and the pointless attack has lead them to a deserving relegation spot. Also, they are poor at home with just 2 wins of the 12 games played here.

Both of these teams netted goals in 5 of their recent clashes. Despite losing matches they have scored well in recent games. Ankaragucu have scored past good teams of the likes of Besiktas and Fenerbahce. The visitors have found goals-against  Trabzonspor as well.

Rizespor has no wins in their last 7 league games and do not have a strong performance in away games so far. From 11 matches on the road, they have 2 wins and 7 defeats. But they have never lost to this opposition in their 4 recent meetings. Since both teams can be considered equals in terms of their recent form, I am expecting a draw with both sides scoring.
