Besiktas vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 29th October 2018
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Vodafone Park, Istanbul.
The in-form Besiktas hosts Rizespor who have their own relegation battles to worry already. With 15 points from nine matches, Besiktas stay just below the Europa League qualification spots, which will be playing in the back of the minds of players as well as home fans.
The curious thing about the stats of these teams is, both have scored and conceded almost same number of goals. But Besiktas is fighting for Europe, while the visitors are fighting to stay in the league.
Besiktas will be careful not to drop points in this match-up as competition is strong in the league table, especially just below the top two spots. Eight teams have registered points on the table in the range of 12-16.

Besiktas vs Rizespor Prediction
Besiktas has had a really good year in 2018, especially at home. They have had to endure just three losses at the Vodafone Park from January 2018. Two of the losses were in European competitions. Only one has been in the Super Lig.
At home they have had two separate five-match winning streaks, another five-match unbeaten streak and a 12-match unbeaten streak. It would be extremely hard for the visiting Rizespor to put up an impressive performance against Besiktas.
The match will be dominated by the home team the entire way. Goals will be scored with considerable ease, and there’s nothing the helpless visiting defence could do about that.
