The Green Crocodiles started off with a narrow 2-1 defeat away at Fenerbahce before playing three consecutive draws in low-scoring contests against Kayseri, Konya and Besiktas.

Samet Aybaba’s men showed great mental strength to come back from a deficit and save a point against heavyweights Besiktas in the previous round.

It was the former West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho who came on from the bench to make his first ever appearance for Bursa and score the equalizer five minutes from time.

We can definitely expect him on the pitch from the very first minute of the tie against Rize on Sunday.

Rizespor vs Bursaspor: Head-to-head

Bursa lead the H2H tie by two wins coming into 31st meeting with Karadeniz Atmacasi.

However, the visitors can still remember the painful 6-0 defeat they suffered on the previous visit to Caykur Didi Stadyumu.

Rize generally have a brutal home record in matches with the Green Crocodiles (11 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses).

Three or more goals were seen in three of last four H2H affairs.

Rizespor vs Bursaspor: Prediction

Rize had a much easier schedule than Bursa, but they only won two points in the process. They don’t look to be a side competitive for big things at this level having just secured the promotion to the top flight last year.

In spite of the poor H2H record in Rize, Bursa will have a great chance to pick up their inaugural win of the campaign her.

We see a huge value in backing the away victory at the odds of 3.75 on the occasion. More conservative punters will fancy the 1.83 odds offered for the visitors not to lose.

Rizespor vs Bursaspor: Bet Tips

  • Bursaspor to win @ 3.75 (11/4)
  • Bursa or Draw @ 1.83 (5/6).
