Rizespor vs Istanbul Basaksehir Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Istanbul Basaksehir continue their pursuit of leaders Trabzonspor in a Turkish Super Lig clash against Rizespor at the Caykur Didi Stadium. Istanbul Basaksehir have won two of their last three matches in Turkey and should have the edge over Rizespor who are winless in their last four.

Rizespor Form

Rizespor are coming off a 2-0 defeat at Gaziantep in their previous Super Lig fixture. They barely offered any attacking threat throughout the 90 minutes and finished the match with just a single attempt on target.

Ismail Kartal's men have been on a steady decline and are now just four points above the relegation zone. They have lost three of their last four matches, including a 2-1 defeat to Besiktas in their previous fixture at the Caykur Didi Stadium.

Rizespor News

Centre back Ivanildo Fernandes is suspended for Monday’s match after getting a red card in the defeat at Gaziantep. Montassar Talbi is also set to serve a suspension while Marko Scepovic is ruled out.

Istanbul Basaksehir Form

Istanbul Basaksehir earned a 1-0 victory over Besiktas in their previous Super Lig fixture. Demba Ba struck the only goal five minutes after the restart as they withstood some late pressure to secure the win.

Okan Buruk's were in fine form with away victories against Kayserispor and Galatasaray putting them in touch at the top of the Super Lig table. They won two of their last three league matches before a 3-1 loss at Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Europa League.

Rizespor vs Istanbul Basaksehir Match Up 

Milan Skoda is often the man tasked with leading the line for Rizespor but the striker has just one goal in his last four matches. Strike partner Ogulcan Caglayan has also found the net just once in his last six matches.

Even without the suspended Enzo Crivelli, Istanbul Basaksehir still have enough quality to get past the Rizespor defence. Demba Ba has scored six goals in his last six matches while Edin Visca has found the net three times from midfield in his last five appearances.
