Sivasspor vs Bursaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 30 September 2018
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul SStadyumu (Sivas).
Both Sivasspor and Bursaspor have been struggling at the start of the new Super Lig season, coming into their head to head clash on Sunday at Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadyumu. The hosts fell to 16th in the league ladder after a 2-1 loss away at Antalyaspor last weekend.
They head into this winless in five games, avoiding a defeat just twice in the process. It’s a bitterly poor return if we know the opposition included the likes of Akhisarspor, Eruzurumspor and Antalyaspor in last three rounds.
Bursa have not been playing poorly by any means, but they somehow found wins hard to come by so far in the season. They lost just one of six games so far, the narrow 2-1 defeat to Fenerbahce away at Sukru Saracoglu on the opening day. Nonetheless, the team led by Samet Aybaba is yet to clinch a three-pointer as each of last five games they played ended without a winner.
Sivasspor vs Bursaspor: Head-to-head
The two teams met each other in a pre-season friendly this summer. It ended in a 1-1 draw.
Bursa took four points from two head to head games in the previous tern of Super Lig without conceding a single goal along the way.
Just one of past five head to head matches saw three or more goals scored.
Overall, the Green Crocodiles lead the head to head tie by five wins ahead of 36th meeting with Sivasspor.
Sivasspor vs Bursaspor: Prediction
Bursa are playing very tight under Aybaba and we can hardly imagine a different approach here when they take on fellow strugglers Yigidos. Nevertheless, we don’t see the visitors as underdogs here based on both the current form and the most recent H2H record.
Bursa are undefeated in last five meetings with Yigidos who will come into this winless in last five league outings. The away win or draw thus has a massive value at the odds of 1.83.
The draw does seem to be the most likeable of three outcomes and it can be backed at the odds of 3.40. Obviously, the Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be a safe pick as well and it is paid at the sky-high 1.95 odds. It’s a must-take bet value-wise knowing that just one of last five head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored. Additionally, none of last five matches Bursa played in Super Lig offered three or more goals.
Sivasspor vs Bursaspor: Bet Tips
Bursaspor or Draw @ 1.83 (5/6)
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.95 (19/20).
