Goztepe vs Rizespor Team News 

A recent 2-0 loss at the hands of Kasimpasa served as yet another setback for Goztepe as their slip down the Super Lig table continues. They were also beaten by in-form Istanbul Basaksehir who not only won 3-0, but also did so with only 10 men on the pitch. 

Prior to that they were beaten 1-0 by Kayserispor which kicked off their losing run, which occurred after a 3-1 win over Konyaspor and 1-1 draws against Denizlispor and Gaziantep.

They remain positioned inside the top half, though Goztepe have slid down the table of late, thanks to three losses on the bounce. A lack of goals is becoming a real problem for Tuesday’s hosts, who’ve scored none in their last three and just one in their last four. 

Fortunately, most of their attacking issues seem to be away from home. In front of a home crowd, they’ve only gone one game without scoring, while they’ve scored in eight of their last nine on their own patch. Unfortunately, they’ve conceded in seven of those nine. Each of their last seven to be precise.

Against those in the bottom half, Goztepe have a mixed home record, winning two, drawing to and losing two of their six home games against those that currently reside below 9th position. 

What they have done well in such games is restrict teams, conceding two or more in just one out of six. They’ve scored in four of those six but have only scored more than once in one of those six.

While the form of the hosts has waned somewhat over the last few weeks, Rizespor have been struggling for some time. Tuesday’s visitors have won none of their last eight, six of which they’ve lost.

The visitors don’t have the most encouraging record away against the current top half, winning two and losing three of their five travelling matches against those currently in 9th or above. Interestingly, they’ve scored more than once in just one of those five matches.

Injured or Suspended Players

Goztepe: Atinc Nukan, Ege Ozkayimoglu, Serdar Gurler and Alpaslan Ozturk.

Rizespor: Aminu Umar and Marko Scepovic.

Goztepe vs Rizespor Predictions

Given the numbers, ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ is hard to ignore in the betting. In their games at home against the bottom half, the hosts have found it tough to score lots of goals, scoring more than once in just one out of six. Four of those six have seen less than three goals go in.

Much of the same can be said for the visitors, who’ve not scored an abundance of goals away against the top half. Less than three goals have been scored in four of their five away matches against such opposition.

Add in that both teams rank poorly (in the bottom five) when it comes to shots for in the Turkish Super Lig and supporting a low-scoring game makes sense.
