Kayserispor vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 6 October 2018
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK
Venue: Kadir Has Sehir Stadi (Kayseri).
Kayserispor host fellow bottom-of-the-table rivals Rizespor for their Matchday 8 clash on Saturday looking for a return to the winning ways after three consecutive losses, desperate for points to bounce back climb the table again.
They’ve seen a very solid start of the campaign and earned two wins and two draws in first four outings but struggled to keep it up, failing to find the net in any of their last three. Goztepe beat them midway through September and they haven’t been able to recuperate against Konyaspor and Besiktas, who all snatched all three wins in rather comfortable wins.
Rizespor have seen similar troubles early in the season and sit two points behind the rivals but we have seen them earn some recent pick-me-ups, where they beat Tarsus İdman Yurdu in Cup and shocked Fenerbahce in a 3-0 thriller at home ground – which was their first win this term. Okan Buruk surely hopes his men can build on such performances at Kadir Has Sehir Stadi too and we expect a great contest!
Kayserispor vs Rizespor: Head-to-head
- Kayserispor have bagged two wins in the sides’ last two head-to-head clashes, securing the points on both occasions in 2016/17.
- We have seen Rizespor snatch just one win in eight trips to this ground so far.
- The sides netted a total of nine goals in the last two occasions.
Kayserispor vs Rizespor: Prediction
We now hope for another exciting occasion but we do believe Kayserispor have what it takes to outgun the rivals once again and climb the table with a win priced at 2.35. This would be their only second home win this term but we have seen a tough side and believe they can finally end the unwanted streak.
However, we do see the visitors getting on the scoresheet in another high-scoring head-to-head matchup and we’ll also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.00, which does feel generous for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner here, seeing both sides scoring and conceding goals recently.
