Trabzonspor vs Sivasspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: Medical Park Stadyumu, Trabzon
The biggest match of the week in Turkey is taking place on Sunday afternoon at Medical Park Stadium where Trabzonspor welcome the current table leaders and the biggest surprise package of season Sivasspor.
No one really thought these two teams are going to be at the top after the first half of season 2019/2020 or to be part of the title race.
Visitors have been struggling lately, so 1.90 odds on home win shouldn’t be surprising. Sivasspor also have huge injury list going into this clash, not being able to count on 5-6 standard main roster players.

These two sides have met 33 times in the past. Trabzon are having a small lead when it comes to victories, 16-11. The first match of the season was won by Sivas though 2-1 FT.
Interestingly, four out of the last six encounters have seen both teams score at least once.
Trabzonspor vs Sivasspor: Prediction
Trabzonspor have the best offensive line in the league, managing to score 45 goals so far. A big chunk of those were Alex Sorloth, Norwegian striker who made a move to this club from Gent last season. He is currently priced at 2.10 odds to score on Sunday too. Trabzon have won seven out of 11 encounters at this stadium, scoring 2.63 goals per match!
As mentioned above, Sivasspor had much bigger advantage over other teams but won only one out of last three games. There was also one unpleasant 1-5 loss to Gaziantep included.
Visitors are obviously going through a small crisis and decline of form. Losing 5-1 to 9th placed team is not a good sign. We are backing Trabzon to win this match and sit on the top of the table.
The average number of goals seen in Sivas’ games on the road is currently at 3.60. Over 2.5 goals full-time is a good alternative bet.
