Rizespor vs Sivasspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu (Rize).
Sivasspor has been going through a rough patch and is one of the very few teams to stay winless in their last four games. They do have a buffer of seven points to fall should the relegation dogfight come knocking, but with Erzurum picking up their form, it’d do well for the team to convert some of their next set of fixtures into points.
Rizespor has been going strong in recent ties and has the home advantage this weekend. They lost just once in the last five match-days, and it was against the all-conquering Besiktas. Their form at home has been exemplary, that the team lost just twice in the last eight months – against Basaksehir once, and against Besiktas.
