Goztepe vs Rizespor Prediction
Goz Goz lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Kasimpasa. It was their third defeat in a row, and this has made the squad desperate for a victory this Tuesday. They are a respectable mid-table team, and such a worrying streak cannot be allowed to continue.
Meanwhile, the Sparrowhawks lost 2-1 on the road against Ankaragucu. It was the eighth winless game on the trot for the former, and has increased pressure upon the players to deliver in the coming game weeks. They are already stuck in the relegation zone, and they have nine games remaining.
As things stand, consider that Goz Goz were unbeaten in nine of their past ten home fixtures, and the sole loss in the period had come against Basaksehir. They are also placed relatively higher in league standings, while their counterparts are in the relegation zone.
In addition, the Sparrowhawks were winless in 14 of their previous 16 overall games, and were so in 15 of their preceding 18 away fixtures. They had also lost nine of their prior thirteen matches away from home.
Most importantly, Goz Goz hold a 100% unbeaten record at this venue against this opponent since 2002, have not conceded against them since 2012, and have never failed to score here. Considering all these observations, it’s expected that Goztepe will record a dominating win at the Gürsel Aksel Stadyumu.
