Rizespor vs Fenerbahce Prediction & Match Preview

Rizespor vs Fenerbahce
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 11 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu.

The Turkish Super Lig did not have relegations for their last season, and had there been, the Sparrowhawks would have been the last safe team in the table. They have been usual contenders to finish in the bottom tier for the past several years, in fact.

Meanwhile, the Yellow Canaries are also in better form, had finished in the top tier the last campaign (missed out a Europa ticket by a whisker), and most importantly, have a great h2h record against this opponent.

For the reasons, expect Fenerbahce to emerge victorious this weekend.

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

  • Erol Bulut’s men are on a three-game winning run against this rival.
  • They had also won six of the former seven overall meetings.
  • Going on, they had also registered 19 of the previous 22 wins.
  • At this stadium, the guests had scored two or more goals in 11 of the past 15 clashes.

Rizespor vs Fenerbahce: Prediction

The Sparrowhawks were winless in 16 of their preceding 19 overall matches. They are also on a three-game losing run, and had conceded two or more goals in 13 of their former 17 fixtures.

Going on, they were also one of the worst teams in the league in 2019-20, and had finished just above the relegation cut-off (if relegation had been implemented). On the other hand, their counterparts were one of the top performers, and were just unlucky to miss the European cut.

As such, they will be determined to make amends for that miss, and will target a great opening to their campaign this time around.

Moreover, they have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent. In fact, Bulut’s men are on a three-match winning run against this foe, and had also won six of the past seven such meetings. Also do note that they had recorded 19 of the preceding 22 such wins.

Taking into account these observations, expect a winning performance from Fenerbahce this weekend.
