Kasimpasa vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 12th May 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu.
Rizespor demolished Bursaspor 6-0 on the home patch last weekend to keep theoretical chances for saving the top flight status alive.
The visitors are now six points away from safe zone with four games lft to play in Super Lig. The victory over Kasimpasa in the first match of the round on Friday evening would thus mean the world for them.
However, getting points from Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu will be one hell of a task for the team led by Hsan Ozer.
Kasimpasa have nothing to play for in the final four games of the season, but they will come in the game in high spirits after beating Galatasaray 1-3 on the road last Saturday.
Kemal Ozde’s men have generally been very tough to beat on the home court where they picked up ten wins in last 13 matches.
Rize have been in a goof attacking shape lately thanks to their top scorer Leonard Kweuke.
The striker from Cameroon scored a brace in the mentioned drubbing of Bursa last weekend to take his league tally to 12 goals so far in the season.
However, the main problems for Rize pop out at the back because they are very easy to break down and this is why four of their last five Super Lig outings offered the option of both teams netting.
Kasimpasa vs Rizespor: Head to head
The teams are all levelled at six wins each ahead of their 18th meeting in history.
Each of their last four H2H meetings ended in goal fests including the clash from the first part of the season when the two sides shared a point by playing a 2-2 draw at Yeni Rize Sehir Stadi.
Kasimpasa vs Rizespor: Prediction
We are definitely in for a yet another high-scoring affair between two attackingly oriented teams.
The visitors have a much greater imperative what could prove out to be the deciding factor. We’ll thus avoid any home win bets at the 23/20 odds.
