Rizespor vs Genclerbirligi Prediction

Rizespor are yet to ensure consistency in their campaign this season. The hosts were at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard to Fenerbahce in their last clash at home. While on the road, they pulled off a comfortable 2-0 win over Yeni Malatyaspor.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team managed to hold reigning champions Galatasaray to a 1-1 draw in their most recent clash in the Turkish Cup.

On the other hand, Genclerbirligi will be squaring up against Rizespor this week on the back of a dismal 4-1 defeat at the hands of Besiktas. The visitors were at their worst in that matchup, to say the least.

Miserably, they had both Nadir Cifcti and Yasin Pehlivan sent off in the opening forty-five minutes of the game, and subsequently managed no more than a consolation goal by the end of the ninety.

It is also worth mentioning that the newly-promoted side have been struggling to get things going for them on the road. They have tasted success just twice so far, and have been recording back to back defeats in their last two outings on the trot.

Taking into account that they were also at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard in their last trip here, Rizespor are sizing up to be the favorites in this one.

However, the hosts have been dropping points in their past two games at home. Considering that Genclerbirligi have shared the spoils twice on the road this term, back a double chance just to be on the safe side.

Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the guests have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in each of their outings. As of now, they have found the back of the net sixteen times away from home, which is also the joint highest tally by any side in the cluster.

Considering that neither side have kept a clean sheet in their last three h2h meetings here either, expect both teams to have their scoring boots on this week.
