Rizespor vs Besiktas Predictions & Match Preview

Rizespor vs Besiktas
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 8th April 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu (Rize).

Apart from the top-tier teams, Rizespor is surely one of the most in-form sides in the Super Lig. They may have quite a lot to catch up to see their European dreams come to fulfillment, but the spirited squad will give all they can till the end. Their form and dedication in the recent games alone are testaments to this fact.

Besiktas has Europa League qualification safely in their kitty, but with just five points separating them from a Champions League appearance, the team would consider it a travesty if they give up with eight match-days remaining. They will have to deal with Galatasaray in pursuit of this spot, but the players will be up for the challenge.

Rizespor vs Besiktas Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Besiktas won the last six games in a row.
  • In the last ten years, Rizespor has won just a single tie.
  • The last Rizespor recorded a league win was back in 2006.
  • Besiktas won the last three matches at this venue.
  • Rizespor has been winless at their home for the last 11 years.

Rizespor vs Besiktas Prediction

Besiktas is unbeaten in their 11 matches in a row and was unbeaten in 17 of their last 19. The team also managed to win eight of their last eleven attempts. Also, the squad recorded two or more goals in eight of their last ten ties. Importantly, they won the last six h2h fixtures in succession and lost just once against Rizespor in the last ten years. Moreover, the last Rizespor won a league meeting was in 2006, and they have been winless against this opponent, at home, for the last eleven years.

Besiktas, who are currently chasing Galatasaray, for a Champions League entry, will definitely add three points to their tally this Monday.

But the match won’t be an open-and-shut case. Rizespor does have the home advantage, and they have a scoring streak going on for the last 15 match-ups on the trot. At home, they managed to do so in 23 of their last 25 games. Expect the BTTS option to be satisfied this week.
