Konyaspor vs Rizespor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Monday, 28 December 2020
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium (Konya).
The teams are locked on the same 18 points in the bottom half of the league table, but Konyaspor are slight favourites on Monday since Rizespor are one of the worst away sides in the Turkish Super Lig.
Very late strikes helped the team from Konya to bag an inspiring comeback win at Kayserispor on Thursday and end a streak of two match losing streak. They had to deal with injury problems in recent weeks, yet 4 wins from last 7 is a decent stat.
Meantime, Rizespor held their nerves to see-off Antalyaspor 2-1 last week, but this is only their 5th win of the season.
The team picks the majority of the points at home and are extremely poor in their travels, 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses from 6 away games.
Not only that, they have been traditionally poor on the road and managed only 1 win from the last 14 away games, though that win came against Sivasspor 0-2 this season.
Konyaspor do look decent at home and have already picked up 3 wins and a draw from 6.
Konyaspor vs Rizespor head-to-head
The teams share 2 wins and 2 draws each from their last 6 Super Lig clashes.
Both teams have scored in 4 of those 6 duels, however only 2 of them saw over 2.5 goals.
At home, Konya have an excellent h2h record having won 4 of the recent 6, lost and drew 1.
The corresponding fixture at this stadium last season saw a narrow 1-0 home win.
Konyaspor vs Rizespor Prediction
All in all, a home win looks good in this match since the visitors often let their guard down in travels and concede goals in pairs. Evidently, Rizespor have conceded 2 goals in 4 of their away games this season, whilst Konyaspor are on an excellent scoring form in both home and away matches.
So, we back the over 2.5 goals along with that on the basis of their recent goal scoring trend.
