Yeni Malatyaspor vs Rizespor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 22 September 2018
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK
Venue: Yeni Malatya Stadyumu (Malatya).
Yeni Malatyaspor and Rizespor are going to open the Saturday’s action of the Turkish Super Lig 6th round.
Home side opened the season by winning seven points from the first three rounds, but they suffered two straight defeats. The hosts are doing very well in the back, while they should be more productive in the final third.
Mitchell Donald and the lads are looking forward to getting back on winning track and remaining in the top half of the table. They’ve managed to celebrate a victory against Fenerbahce in their first clash played in front of the home crowd.
Although they’ve been defeated just twice so far, Rizespor still haven’t managed to book their first win. They managed to find the back of the net in their both away clashes, but also to win just one point.
Okan Buruk’s side needs to improve their attacking work, while their defence should also be a bit tighter. The visitors have been the best side in the second-tier last season and they want to remain in the competition at the end of the current one.
Yeni Malatyaspor v Rizespor: Head-to-head
It is very interesting that this is going to be the first head to head clash of these two sides. They were constantly at the different levels of the Turkish league pyramid, and they also didn’t have the chance to face each other in Cup matches.
Yeni Malatyaspor v Rizespor: Prediction
The hosts have a nice chance to book their new three points and they should be able to take advantage of playing at the home pitch. Yeni Malatyaspor are favourites in this one and they should be capable of celebrating their third victory of the season.
Rizespor have been involved in fairly efficient clashes so far as both teams managed to score a goal in all but one match when they were participating. Although the hosts are playing pretty tight, in this one the crowd should be able to see both teams finding the back of the net.
