Rizespor lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Fenerbahce. They had also lost 17 of their past 21 matches, and had conceded two or more goals in 18 of the past 23 fixtures.

On the other hand, Goztepe have a single clean sheet in their last 18 games, and their only league win since October had come against the 16th placed Gaziantep.

Taking into account these observations, expect a goal-fest between these two weak defenses this Saturday.
