Ankaragucu vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 22 February 2021
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Eryaman Stadium.
AG are placed second to last in the table, and have won just five times all through this campaign.
They have been conceding goals in plenty right from the start of the season, and they have really established themselves as a leading contender to get relegated at the end of 2020-21.
Meanwhile, the Black Sea Sparrowhawks are going through one of the worst phases of any team in the competition this whole season, and they are on the road as well – where they have been a total failure all through this campaign.
Moreover, most h2h clashes over the years have had goals in plenty too, and considering all these factors, expect a high-scoring thriller, between these two faltering defenses.

Ankaragucu vs Rizespor Prediction
Hikmet Karaman’s men had lost six of the preceding eight overall matches, and they had conceded two or more goals in five of these fixtures. Note that they were also winless in ten of their past fourteen overall appearances at home.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in 11 of their preceding 12 overall fixtures, and they are on a ten-game winless run on the road.
In fact, Marius Sumudica’s men have won just once away from home since January of 2020, and they had lost 16 of their past 21 road trips in the process.
On top of all that, majority of h2h encounters over the years had goals in huge numbers too.
By the looks of things, expect a goal-fest this Monday at the Eryaman Stadium.
