Rizespor vs Besiktas Prediction

Rizespor were held to a 1-1 draw by Sivasppor the last match-day. But considering that the former were on the road against the toppers of the table, with the equalizer from the home team coming in the 90+3rd minute, the result was not such a bad one.

In the meantime, the struggles of Besiktas continued the prior game week as they lost on the road against Goztepe, with a 2-1 scoreline. It was the fourth loss in a row for Besiktas.

Besiktas had also lost eight of their former nine matches, and the last five on the road. On the other hand, Rizespor were unbeaten in six of their previous eight games, and remained so in seven of their previous nine fixtures at home.

As such, expect the comparatively in-form Rizespor to avoid a loss, with help of their home advantage. However, do consider the facts that Besiktas are one of the best teams in the world, and had scored twelve goals against this rival in the last three matches. 

They have also won seven of the previous eight h2h meetings, and the last four at this venue. Suffice it to say, the chances for Rizespor to keep a clean sheet are very low, and as such, the BTTS bet looks promising.
