Rizespor vs Yeni Malatyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Çaykur Didi Stadyumu (Rize)
This is a match for survival for both these teams. The home side is in the relegation zone after losing more than half of their league games so far. They have the most defeats than any team in this edition of Super Lig. From the recent five matches, they have lost three and have only one win to boast about.
Yeni is also on 32 points just like their upcoming opponents. But a slight goal difference has kept them just safe of the relegation zone. But all the remaining games are important for them. They are coming into this match on the back of a home defeat to giants Besiktas.
Rizespor vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Black sea Sparrow hawks are on a two-match winning streak against this opposition.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals came in two of their three meetings across all venues.
- The hosts won the only head to head match at this ground by a score of 3-0.
- They are unbeaten in the last four home matches on the trot.
Rizespor vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Prediction
Yeni must not be taken lightly as they can surprise us. After losing six away games consecutively no one expected them to win especially to a team like Sivasspor. Their previous away win came against another heavyweight- Besiktas, in December.
But the home team is on a four-match unbeaten run at home. This spell includes the draw against Alanyaspor and the win over reigning champs Galatasaray. Also, with a winning run going on against this opposition, I am backing them to win this one too.
We can all agree that these two have been giving away goals too easily. The hosts are consecutively conceding goals in all five previous games. They have given away two or more goals in four of those matches.
Yeni has also conceded plenty this season, 47 to be exact while scoring only 44 in return. Thus I think we can see both teams scoring on Sunday.
