Ankaragucu vs Rizespor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Eryaman Stadyumu, Ankara
Both Ankaragucu and Rizespor are still in the Super Lig danger zone as we go into the final few games of the campaign, as the rivals meet at Eryaman Stadyumu on Saturday looking for all-important points in an attempt to create a sizeable gap behind them.
Ankaragucu surely have more on their mind with Fenerbahce, Goztepe, and Bursaspor (who sit in the relegation zone) all breathing down their necks. They’re six points clear of the red zone and seeing a thrashing 4-1 loss at Besiktas last week will have Mustafa Kaplan’s men desperate to bounce back – having seen a three-game unbeaten streak beforehand.
Rizespor have, on the other hand, bagged five points in their last three outings and sit three points clear of the rivals with four games left to play.
They’ve beaten Goztepe and held off both table-toppers Istanbul Basaksehir and Sivasspor since, showing they’re capable of upsets on the road and now looking to show off such a character once again despite great struggles for consistency we’ve seen through most part of the campaign.
Ankaragucu vs Rizespor: Head-to-head
Rizespor snatched a thriller 2-4 win on their last trip to Eryaman Stadyumu.
Ankaragucu beat Rizespor just once in the last four head-to-head clashes.
We have seen a 1-1 draw between the sides earlier this term, as Moestafa El Kabir and Aminu Umar netted a goal each.
Ankaragucu vs Rizespor: Prediction
We will now back Rizespor to show off as a very tough nut to crack once again and going for a Double Chance – Draw or Away win feels like buying money for old rope at 1.55.
We’ve seen them suffer just two losses in eight trips and we don’t feel Ankaragucu have what it takes to outclass them now.
Still, we expect goals and the visitors will surely have to cope if they’re to snatch points, as we now go for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.61.
We’ve seen both sides scoring and conceding on the regular and this feels like a solid approach to the fixture by itself too.
