Trabzonspor vs Rizespor Prediction
Trabzonspor dropped points for the first time in seven games last week after Besiktas did just enough to hold them to a 2-2 draw on the road. The hosts, nevertheless, are in fine form at the moment and are yet to stumble in the new year.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions. At the moment, Trabzonspor are playing second fiddle to Basaksehir on the ladder, albeit by a narrow one-point deficit.
In sharp contrast, it has been a while since Rizespor last tasted success in the Super Lig. Miserably, the visitors will be making the trip to Medical Park Stadium on the back of a three-match losing streak.
Their most recent clash, in particular, saw the guests lose 2-1 to the table-toppers themselves.
Furthermore, to be frank, Rizespor have been a nervous bunch on the road this season. In fact, the visiting contingent are sporting the second-worst away statistics in the cluster.
On the other hand, Trabzonspor have been recording back to back wins in their past four first-division games here. Considering that the hosts have not admitted defeat in any of their previous six meetings with this foe at home either, count on Rizespor to make the trip back home empty-handed.
Additionally, Trabzonspor have been running riot in the final third, especially on home soil. Impressively, they have racked up sixteen goals from their past four games here alone.
Moreover, all of their previous six h2h meetings at this venue have featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash was also a high scoring affair, expect no dearth of goals in this one either.
