Rizespor vs Kayserispor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 10 March 2019
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: Caykur Didi Stadyumu (Rize).
There are just four points separating these two likes in the bottom half of the standings coming into an important 25th round fixture at Caykur Didi Stadyumu. Rizespor got off to a dream start to the year with a streak of five wins and a draw in six league matches after the winter break. They saw the thread coming to an end last weekend when they still offered a strong resistance in a narrow 3-2 loss away at Fenerbahce.
Karadeniz Atmacasi thus made a massive step towards securing another top flight campaign. They sat at the very bottom of the standings in the first half of the season and they are still just two points above the red zone line in spite of the aforementioned winning thread at the start of 2019.
Can Okan Buruk’s men return to winning ways right after the loss to Fenerbahce? They are about to face a stern test in the likes of in-form Kayseri on Sunday afternoon and we are definitely in for a very interesting affair at Caykur Didi Stadyumu.
Rizespor vs Kayserispor: Head-to-head

Each of past three head to head meetings saw the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option coming in.
Outfits shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they met each other in the first part of the season at Kadir Has Sehir Stadi.
Overall, Rize won just 3 and lost 9 of 17 ties against Anatolian Star.
Rizespor vs Kayserispor: Prediction
Much like their opponents, Kayseri began the year in a splendid fashion. They are still unbeaten in 2019 and they will head into this on the back of three wins and a draw in last four league affairs.
Anatolian Star drew 2-2 to 3rd-placed Besiktas eight days ago. The head coach Hikmet Karaman has a deadly line-up of attackers led by Artem Kravets and it is no wonder Kayseri are able to produce loads in the final third.
Both teams are flying high attackingly coming into this tie and we have to expect a super entertaining clash packed with goals on Sunday afternoon.
