Rizespor vs Gaziantep Predictions

Rizespor have been in decent form at home but have a number of players missing through injury and COVID-19. With only one defeat in their last 17 league matches, Gaziantep are backed to take all three points on the road. 

  • Rizespor have seen over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 9 home matches (all competitions).
  • Gaziantep have seen over 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Gaziantep are undefeated in 16 of their last 17 matches (Turkish Super Lig).
  • Gaziantep have won 6 of their last 8 matches (Turkish Super Lig).

Head to Head

Rizespor hold a narrow 7-6 advantage over Gaziantep in their 16 previous matches. There have been three draws along the way.

Gaziantep did the double over Rizespor last season, winning 2-1 away and 2-0 at home.

Rizespor Form

Rizespor are 16th on the Turkish Super Lig table and after a decent start to their campaign, have dropped off dramatically. They are winless in five Super Lig matches and six overall.

Rizespor’s last victory came in a 2-1 success against Antalyaspor just before Christmas. Two 1-1 draws against Konyaspor and Genclerbirligi followed before suffering a 6-0 loss at Besiktas.

Another 1-1 draw ensued, this time at home to Denizlispor. They faced Besiktas in the Turkish Cup thereafter, going down 1-0 away against weakened opposition.

In their last match Rizespor were humiliated 4-1 at Yeni Malayaspor. It all started so well as Milan Skoda scored from the spot to put Rizespor ahead at the break. An atrocious second half however saw them concede four.

Rizespor Injuries & Team News

Forward Loic Remy is still out injured which means Milan Skoda will continue to lead the attack. Key midfielder Fabricio Baiano will also miss out through injury.

There has been a wave of COVID-19 infections in the Rizespor squad. This wave sees Gokhan Akkan, Yassine Meriah, Mykola Morozyuk and Fernando Boldrin miss out.

Gaziantep Form

Gaziantep are enjoying a successful season and currently sit third on the table. They have won three of their last five with a draw and a defeat.

A disappointing 1-1 draw at Erzurumspor kicked that run off before Gaziantep defeated Ankaragucu 2-0 at home. That was followed by two successive 2-1 defeats on the road to Sivasspor and Konyaspor.

Gaziantep bounced back to win 2-1 in their last match at home to Kayserispor. A Zoran Kvri own goal put Gaziantep on their way. Despite a second half equaliser by the visitors, Maxim secured the win from the spot.

Gaziantep Injuries & Team News

Injuries to Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik and Nouha Dicko should see Pawel Olkowski and Kenan Ozer start.

There are also a couple of suspensions for Gaziantep with Jefferson and Amedej Vetrih both missing out.
