Rizespor vs Alanyaspor Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The reverse fixture had ended in a 5-2 win for Bulut’s men.
  • Disregarding one single game, 100% of encounters this last decade had goals from both teams.
  • Not once have Ismail Kartal’s men failed to score goals in a fixture.
  • At this venue, the hosts hold a 100% unbeaten record in the past ten years.
  • The last time these two met at this venue, spoils were shared with a 1-1 scoreline.

Rizespor vs Alanyaspor Prediction

The Sparrowhawks were defeated 5-2 on the road the last game week, by Trabzonspor. The fact that the former’s defense has been under-performing, was on fine display, as they were breached five times through the ninety minutes. 

In the meantime, Bulut’s men lost 1-2 at home against Besiktas. Despite the loss, the match showed that the team was willing to fight for a European entry, no matter who the opposition is. Keep note that Besiktas have been one of the best in the competition for a very long time.

In regards to result this Sunday, consider that the team from the Antalya Province are placed in the top tier, and are chasing a Europa ticket. On top of that, they had won the reverse fixture 5-2, and this season in the league, only three teams have scored more goals than them.

Moreover, their opposite number are placed in the bottom tier, and are battling relegation. Kartal’s men have also not kept a clean sheet in nine of their past ten games, conceded twice or more in the prior four matches in a row, and conceded five alone in their latest fixture. As such, expect Alanyaspor to perform well, and secure a win this Sunday.

However, do note that the encounter is at the Sparrowhawks’ home, and that they have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes here. Importantly, not once have they failed to score goals against this opponent as well. As such, expect the BTTS bet to bring good returns this match-day.
