Sivasspor vs Goztepe Prediction
Sivasspor were on the road the last match-day, and had to slot in a goal in the 90+6th minute against Genclerbirligi to avoid a loss. The match thus ended in a 2-2 draw.
In the meantime, Goztepe had hosted tough customers Galatasaray the previous game week, and registered a 2-1 win over them.
This Sunday though, the favorites are Sivasppor, and the reasons are pretty obvious. They are the toppers of the table, and on top of that, have the home advantage. They have a four-point lead at the top of standings, and have scored the most number of goals in the process as well.
They have also won nine of their last eleven overall fixtures, and six of their previous seven at home. In addition, they have also recorded four of the preceding six h2h wins against this opponent, and have lost just twice at home this last decade.
Considering these observations, a win for the toppers Sivasppor seems the likely outcome.
However, do take into account the fact that Goztepe won four of their last five games, and four of their previous five on the road as well. They have also scored two or more goals in five of their previous six overall match-ups, and have not failed to score even once in their prior seven trips on the road.
As such, a clean sheet might be too much to expect from Sivasppor despite their upper hand, and likely, the BTTS bet holds great potential this Sunday.
