Fenerbahce vs Rizespor Prediction & Match Preview

Fenerbahce vs Rizespor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 2 March 2019
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Ulker Stadyumu Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu Spor Kompleksi (Istanbul).

Fenerbahce earned a massive point on Monday when they came back from three goals behind to hold bitter city rivals Besiktas to a 3-3 draw in the previous round. A point from Vodafone Stadyumu won’t change the highly underwhelming campaign for the Yellow Canaries, but it will certainly boost up their confidence coming into the final quarter of the season.

Ersun Yanal’s men generally got off to a fine start to the year claiming seven points from opening three games in 2019. Such form moved them away from the danger area. However, they still need to work hard to fully escape the relegation scrap being just one point above the red zone after a thread of three subsequent league affairs without a win.

Fenerbahce vs Rizespor: Head-to-head

Fenerbahce were the dominant force in the history of head to head matches with Rizespor.

The Yellow Canaries were on a streak of six wins and a draw in seven games with Karadeniz Atmacasi before this term’s meeting at Cayukr Didi Stadyumu.

It saw a demolishing 3-0 victory for Rizespor back in late-September last year.

Fener won 13, drew 3 and lost just 2 of 18 home outings with Karadeniz Atmacasi.

Fenerbahce vs Rizespor: Prediction

The hosts would move lock on points with Rize in case of a win here. Nevertheless, getting one won’t be that easy of a task if we know the visitors are flying high at the start of the year.

The head coach Okan Buruk obviously did an amazing job during the winter break as Rizespor won five and drew one of six league matches in 2019. Such incredible run saw them move away from the danger zone. Rize currently sit 12th in the league ladder and are four points above the relegation area.

The visitors conceded just two goals in six league outings this year. They bagged as many as five in last two ties against Bursaspor and Yeni Malatyaspor. Backing goals at both ends is our primary betting suggestion, while you can also try with the draw at the half time at the odds of 2.40.
