Sivasspor vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Sivas 4 Eylül Stadyumu (Sivas).
The Black Sea Storm has a lot to gain if they manage to get over the obstacle that is the away handicap in this game. As of now, they are just below the final spot which ensures entry into Europe, but the team is just three points away from even a Champions League appearance.
Yigidos have always suffered against this opponent, and they hope it won’t happen again. The team has been winless in their last three games and took a considerable hit to their confidence regarding their defense. A total of seven goals went past them in these three fixtures, and that’s never a good way to prepare before hosting Unai Karaman’s men.
Sivasspor vs Trabzonspor Head-to-head (h2h)
- Seven of the last eight h2h wins and 13 of the last 16 belong to the team from Trabzon.
- Eight of the last nine matches saw the team on the road finding the back of the net.
- The last five ties at this venue had Karadeniz Firtinasi scoring goals, and so had eight of the last nine.
- Unai Karaman’s men have been unbeaten at the Sivas 4 Eylül Stadyumu since 2013.
Sivasspor vs Trabzonspor Prediction
The Black Sea Storm was unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 matches on the road. Of the total four losses they faced away from home since February of last year, three were against the current top-three of the Super Lig table. The team has lost just three of their last 19 overall games. Additionally, they are unbeaten against this opponent since 2013 and have registered seven of the last eight h2h wins, and 13 of the last 16. There’s no realistic chance that they will lose this tie.
They possess one of the most potent frontlines in the entire league. In the last 15 league games, no other group has outscored them. Also, they take part in games that involve an average of 3.3 goals. Furthermore, only the top-ranked teams have won more second halves than them, while only a select few have lost more second halves than their counterparts. I expect a goal from the visitors in the second half, who have scored two or more goals in five of their last six trips on the road.
