Rizespor vs Galatasaray Match Preview
Galatasaray have seen a tough schedule over the past two weeks but managed to keep hold of their unbeaten streak and sit just three points behind Super Lig pace-setters Trabzonspor as they travel to Rize for their Matchday 27 clash on Sunday afternoon. They’ve impressed in the final third when away from home lately and we now hope to see more of the same.
Cimbom shared the spoils with Sivasspor (2-2) and Besiktas (0-0) in their last two outings and have great ground to build on despite seeing a streak of five wins ended that way. They scored eight goals on their last three trips and Fatih Terim will hope his reinvigorated outfit can build on the performances.
Rizespor will not be the same sort of a challenge either and they come into the match amid a troubled run. They suffered seven losses in eight outings across competitions since late January, including a 2-1 loss at Turk Telekom Stadium in the Cup – which will be just as worrying now.
Unal Karaman’s men saw Ankaragucu (2-1) and Goztepe (2-0) both snatch the points in their last two outings and defensive woes at Caykur Didi Stadium will be just as worrying now. They saw Besiktas (1-2) and Istanbul Basaksehir (1-2) bag points at this ground and coping with the big guns will be as important as ever.
We don’t feel they have what it takes to hold off Galatasaray and we’ll thus back the visitors to snatch the points, going for an Away win at 4/6 with Paddy Power – which feels like buying money for old rope at this point.
We should be in for an exciting contest, though, and after seeing Cimbom struggling to keep it together at the back – we’re going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/5 with bet365. Rizespor found the net in five of the sides’ last six head-to-head clashes and we now hope they can keep it up.
