Rizespor vs Fenerbahce Prediction
Rizespor were on the road the previous game day, and had to take on Yeni Malatyaspor. Still, the former recorded a hard-fought 0-2 win to post three valuable points on the board.
In the meantime, Fenerbahce recorded an inspiring 3-1 victory over Besiktas with the aid of home advantage the last match-day. The victory against one of the best teams in the country will certainly be confidence-boosting for the team.
This Sunday, in regards to result, first of all take into account the respective positions of the teams in the league table. While Fener are in possession of a playoff spot, and just two points away from the second position in the table, their opposite number Rizespor are placed in the lower tier of the standings.
Moreover, Rizespor were winless in three of their last four overall games, while Fener had won four of their last five fixtures.
Most importantly, over the years, Fener were the dominant team in h2h clashes. To quote a stat, Fenerbahce had won four of the previous five such meetings, and even recorded 17 of the last 20 h2h wins.
Considering all these observations, it’s adjudged that the visitors Fenerbahce should make it out with the three points this Sunday.
However, the home advantage of Rizespor will surely play a role throughout the ninety minutes. Do keep note that Rizespor had won four of their last five home appearances, and had in fact scored three or more goals in two of their prior three matches here.
Also, Fenerbahce were winless in four of their preceding five match-ups on the road, and were so in 12 of their prior 16 such matches.
Finally, consider that Fenerbahce have kept a total of four clean sheets away from home since early February of 2019, and just two in this campaign of the Super Lig on the road.
Taking into account these findings, expect the BTTS bet to have great potential this Sunday.
