Galatasaray vs Rizespor Prediction & Match Preview

Galatasaray vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 1 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Türk Telekom Stadium (Istanbul).

Gala is struggling to show the form they had displayed the last season. As of now, they are placed seventh in the table, with a single win to show for from their previous five attempts in the league. They do have the home advantage this Friday, and will definitely try their best to post three points on the board.

However, the guests Rizespor have just put an end to their losing streak with a victory over Ankaragucu and could put in the effort to make it a double-feature.

Galatasaray vs Rizespor Head-to-head (h2h)

  • 11 of the former 13 wins went to the reigning champions of the Super Lig.
  • The last time these two met, Aslanlar recorded a 2-3 victory on the road.
  • It’s been four years since Ismail Kartal’s men have won against this rival.
  • The guests last won at this venue 15 years back.
  • Eight of the previous ten wins at this ground sided with the home team.

Galatasaray vs Rizespor Prediction

Kartal’s men lost four of their former five games and conceded five or more goals in two of their last four fixtures. They also remained winless in 16 of their preceding 20 overall ties. Meanwhile, their opposite number was unbeaten in eight of their last eleven games, and two of these losses had come in the Champions League, and the remaining one was inflicted by Besiktas.

At home, they have lost just twice during this period, and importantly, won 14 of these 21 ties.

Moreover, Gala has been the dominant side in h2h encounters for a very long time, and especially so at this venue.

Bringing all these factors under the microscope, it is assumed that the hosts are the favorites to come out on top this Friday.
