Sivasspor to Win
This week, we will take another look at the Turkish Super League. Counting for the 19th round, the league leaders Sivasspor are going to host the 11th placed Rizespor at the 4 Eylül Stadium.
Sivasspor are tearing apart every opponent they face round after round. Having defeated Beşiktaş on the road last week, they are simply on another level at the moment. I highly doubted that their stellar performance will continue in the second leg of the league but they certainly proved me wrong. In my opinion, from now on, it will be incredibly difficult to beat a motivated Sivasspor at home. At the moment, they have 40 points gathered in 18 rounds with 12 victories, 4 draws, and 2 losses. They have also won their last 7 home matches in Super League.
The away team, Rizespor, have gone through a challenging fixture. In their last 4 official matches, they faced Fenerbahçe once, and Galatasaray twice. The last time they faced Galatasaray on the road, they were eliminated from the Turkish Cup by their opponent, and they will be flying back to Sivas, a city famous for its cold weather. Rizespor, have not been the best away team in this campaign. In fact, they have only won twice, drawn once, and lost 5 times in the away games.
All in all, I think that there is no need to mention which side is the favorite here. Sivasspor simply have what it takes to close these kinds of games out. I believe that the chances of Sivasspor to win are 6/10.
