Trabzonspor vs Rizespor Prediction & Match Preview

Trabzonspor vs Rizespor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Medical Park Stadium (Trabzon).

Trabzonspor are caught at the wrong end of the table and they have to give it all and bag three points against Rizespor on Saturday to continue the revival.

Abdullah Avci’s men are coming to this match unbeaten in 5 and they managed to steer away from the relegation waters though the gap is only 5 points. The damage was done at the start of the season when they managed just one win from 4 games.

Rizespor are no better and they stay a point clear-off their Saturday’s opponent. They are decent while playing at home, but totally opposite while on the road.

Taking from last season, they have only 1 away win to show for from the last 14. This means, Trabzonspor is favourite on first look and let’s confirm it with the h2h analysis.

Head-to-head and Previous meetings

  • Trabzon won the last 5 h2h games against Rizespor in the Turkish Super Lig.

Trabzonspor vs Rizespor Betting Tips

Unbeaten in the recent 5 and an excellent defensive record to go with it (2 goals conceded in last 5), Trabzonspor are favourites to beat Rizespor on Saturday.

We are also expecting some goals in this match since their last 7 h2h meetings at this ground produced 3 or more goals, evidently 6 of them saw over 3.5.
