Rizespor vs Sivasspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:15 UK/ 18:15 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu (Rize).
Both had ended up in the bottom tier of the table last campaign and was just four points away from the relegation line. Moreover, both had conceded 50 or more goals through their run, which even two of the three relegated sides had avoided.
This time around though, either has started on the right note, and it’s particularly true for Sivasspor, considering their comprehensive win over Besiktas just the last match-day. Consider that the latter is one of the giants of Turkey, and in fact had finished third in the table.
Coming to the hosts for the day, Rizespor too won their opener, but since it was against a newly-promoted side, the victory does not hold much comparative merit.
Rizespor vs Sivasspor Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the last eight matches had goals from both teams.
- Four of the previous six wins went to Sivasspor.
- Four of the former six clashes at this stadium had the BTTS clause satisfied.
- The last time these two met, which was three months back, the result was a goalless draw.
Rizespor vs Sivasspor Prediction
After their win against Besiktas, of all teams, there’s a negligible chance that Sivasspor will let go of that enormous start go to waste. They are flying high with confidence, and will definitely want more. Moreover, they have performed well against this opponent in recent h2h clashes too, with them registering four of the former six such wins.
As such, count on them avoiding a loss this weekend. But taking into account their away handicap, and Rizespor starting with a win too, the hosts will put on a great performance for sure as well. Also, both teams have regularly found the back of the net against each other in face-to-face fixtures. In fact, four of the previous six encounters at this stadium, and six of the former eight overall match-ups had the BTTS stat checked.
Consequentially, count on either to fail to keep a clean sheet.
