Rizespor vs Antalyaspor Prediction & Match Preview

Rizespor vs Antalyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Thursday, 24 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu.

The Scorpions are one of the most consistent teams in the competition at the moment. They are on a long unbeaten run, and on top of that their only losses since January, had come against just four teams – Basaksehir, Alanyaspor, Fenerbahce, and Yeni Malatyaspor.

Note that these are some of the absolute best teams in Turkey.

Going on, they also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and have scored in plenty in the process.

Likely, expect Antalyaspor to have the upper hand this Thursday.

However, note that Ersun Yanal’s men are on a dismal run on the road, while the Black Sea Sparrowhawk are on an impressive streak at home. On top of that, majority of h2h encounters over the years have also had goals from both teams.

For the reasons, expect a high-scoring fixture this Thursday at the Çaykur Didi Stadyumu.

Rizespor vs Antalyaspor: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Scorpions recorded four of the previous five overall wins.
  • Since 2015, they have lost just once against this rival.
  • Ten of the former eleven clashes had goals from both teams.
  • Since 2001, barring two meetings, every single game at this stadium had goals from both teams.

Rizespor vs Antalyaspor: Prediction

Yanal’s men are unbeaten in their last six match-ups (four of which were wins), and barring some of the absolute best teams in the country, they have remained invincible since January of 2020.

On top of that, they also have a good h2h record against this rival since 2015, and have consistently scored goals in high numbers against them.

Finally, Stjepan Thomas’s men have also lost three of their past five fixtures.

For the reasons, expect Antalyaspor to secure at least one point this Thursday.

However, note that the Black Sea Sparrowhawk had won five of their preceding six home appearances, and had scored a total of 18 goals in the process.

Moreover, ten of the last eleven overall h2h match-ups, and seven of the previous nine at this venue also had goals from both teams.

As such, expect the BTTS wager to make good returns this Thursday.
