Sivasspor vs Genclerbirligi
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Yeni 4 Eylül Stadyumu.
The Yigidos have finally come back to winning ways after a string of disappointing games. Their attack has been great so far but their real power is their backline.
But in recent weeks they have conceded plenty of goals which have resulted in the winless run. This has kept them n third spot with a 5 point difference with second place Trabzonspor.
The visitors are on a three match unbeaten run, with the latest game being a win against Goztepe. Like most teams in mid-table they have conceded way more than they scored this year. Also, from 16 matches on the road they have lost 9 and have only 4 wins in return.
Sivasspor vs Genclerbirligi: Head-to-head (h2h)
Sivasspor has three wins and a defeat in five previous meetings with this opposition.
More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five matches across all venues.
The reverse fixture ended as a 2-2 draw back in December 2019.
The hosts are on a four game winning streak at home against these visitors.
The last win for the visitors at this ground came ten years ago.
Sivasspor vs Genclerbirligi: Prediction
The host have the upper hand in head to head stats at this ground. They are way above Genclerbirligi in the table with more than 20 points between them. But defeats against Yeni Malatyaspor and Kayserispor have made them rethink their strategy in recent weeks.
I hope they have learned from their mistakes in those matches and will see this one out easily.
The visitors failed to trouble the scores in five of their recent matches on the road. They always had problems scoring against the Yigidos especially at this ground.
Apart from the win over Goztepe they have no goals in four of their last five matches. Sivasspor has kept two clean sheets in recent home fixtures as well. Thus I am backing the hosts to win and only one team to score on Sunday.
