Rizespor vs Galatasaray Prediction & Match Preview

Rizespor vs Galatasaray
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 14 June 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu (Rize)

This one has all the elements of turning out into a one-sided game. The hosts have lost more than half of their league games. This had put them in the relegation zone early in the season. Currently, they are winless in 8 matches on the trot.

The reigning champions are three points short of the top spot. Since the table is so closely contested they still have the chance to pick up another title depending on other results as well. Currently, they are on a 2 game drawing streak, which has affected their chances in the title race. With the hosts in a tight spot, this will be a normal day at the office for Galatasaray.

  • Both sides scored in 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two.
  • The last time Rizespor won this fixture was back in November 2015.
  • The visitors have two wins and a loss in their 5 previous trips to this ground.
  • Both sides scored in all those five games in both cup and league.
  • Three of those matches had more than 2.5 goals also.

Rizespor vs Galatasaray: Prediction

In the current scenario, no one in their right mind would support the hosts to beat Galatasaray. The Lions are the best teams at home and they have done great in matches on the road too. The home team has lost more games than they won at this ground.

Rizespor has scored 22 goals so far in all the matches, of which 16 came at this ground. But at the same time, they have conceded more than twice those goals too.  They are on a 3 match winless run here and have lost three of the last 5 games at this ground. Even though they have lost they have found the back of the net in the majority of those games. Those goals came against teams like Basaksehir and Besiktas. They have scored against Galatasaray in the recent cup game also. So I am backing both teams to score and the visitors to win.
