Gaziantep FK vs Rizespor Prediction
With the 3-0 loss on the road against Besiktas in their previous match, Gaziantep marked their fourth loss within their last ten fixtures. Significantly, the GFK has lost three of those away from home. Besides a poor run on the road, the host has kept a better record at home in the campaign.
Having lost only four of their 11 home matches so far, Gaziantep is one of the teams that can use their home ground advantage well. Also, their prior home win was with Sivasspor in a massive 5-1 scoreline against the current table-toppers.
Along with that, Rizespor has not shown much progress in the league. The visitor has lost five of their last ten matches in all major contests following a 1-2 loss to Besiktas at home with a 1-2 scoresheet.
Besides, Rizespor has won their previous two visits to Gaziantep in 2013 and 2017. Even though it has been a long time, Ismail Kartal will be hoping to get something from the match.
However, with just two wins in their nine away fixtures in the campaign, the odds are stacked against Rizespor at Gaziantep Stadyumu. To top it off, Gaziantep had the better of the visitors in the reverse fixture this season with a 1-2 score on the board.
Hence, the punters can go with the home team to create more opportunities in the game. To be safer, it is better to go with a double chance in the clash.
Furthermore, both teams have found the back of the net in their last five h2h fixtures since 2012. So, the chances of that trend to be continued is also alive in the match.
