Genclerbirligi vs Sivasspor Prediction
Genclerbirligi had taken on Goztepe in their latest league encounter. The former had the home advantage, and put it to good use in delivering a 3-1 win.
Meanwhile, the toppers had locked horns against Fenerbahce the previous game week. Sivasspor too had the home advantage, and even had a two-man numerical advantage on the pitch, as Fener were reduced to nine due to a double red card.
Likely, Sivasspor raced to a 3-1 win, and extended their stay at the top in style.
This Sunday, right away take into account the fact that the toppers are arriving to play. Sivasspor are not only at the top of the table, but they have displayed clear superiority over the other teams as well.
They have a six-point lead at the zenith, and have scored the most number of goals. They have also conceded the second-least, and are the only team in the whole competition to post ten victories. The next best is just eight.
In addition, Sivasspor are also on a seven-game winning run in the league, and have won nine of their last ten matches in all competitions. Furthermore, they have scored twice or more in ten of the last twelve fixtures, and are on a winning streak of five games on the road.
Moreover, they are yet to fail to find the back of the net in an away game this season, and amassed 17 goals from their last five match-ups alone on the road.
On the other hand, Genclerbirligi have recorded a total of just five wins this whole season, and just two in the league in front of the home crowd.
Most importantly, they are a new addition to this top flight, and will find it hard to go against the current topper of the competition.
Finally, Genclerbirligi have lost three of the last four h2h clashes, while they themselves could record just two such wins in total since 2010.
Taking into account all these observations, rightfully expect Sivasspor to keep their winning streak going on. However, to further improve our chances of returns, we will opt for the Double Chance.
