Goztepe vs Sivasspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Gürsel Aksel Stadyumu (Izmir).
Goz Goz is currently 11th in the table with just a match to go. They are currently losing matches consecutively and have no wins in five previous league fixtures. So this will probably add to one of their worst matches to the season.
The away side still has their eyes set on a Champions League qualification spot. They are just two points behind Trabzonspor who are currently occupying it. So the outcome of this match will decide which tier of Europe they will play next season.

- Both sides have two wins each in their five previous meetings.

- In five recent clashes at this ground, both sides have two wins each.
- Three of those games also had fewer than 2.5 goals.
Goztepe vs Sivasspor: Prediction
Sivasspor deserves to be where they are right now. When some of the best teams in the competition failed to flourish this time, they have hit the jackpot. But nobody expected a team that finished 12th last time to get into the top four in this one. They also had tough spells this season but currently, they are on a two game-winning run.
They are also unbeaten in four previous away games on the trot. At the same time, Goztepe is without a win in 7 consecutive games both home and away. They have drawn most of their recent home fixtures. So I am backing the visitors to win this one on Saturday.
The home side has never failed to score goals even though the final result did not go their way. They have broken defenses of the likes of Besiktas and Trabzonspor in home matches. More than half of the goals that Sivasspor concede also came away from home. So we can expect goals at both ends of the field in this game.
