Altay will welcome Rizespor to Bornova Aziz Kocaoğlu Stadyumu for a matchday 25 fixture in Turkey Süper Lig. The last meeting on 21st September 2021 ended in an Altay 2-1 win. Both sides have met one time in the most recent seasons. Altay has won 1 match, and Rizespor failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 3.00 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
Altay’s latest fixture against Göztepe ended in an away 2-0 win. Altay was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Altay scored in both halves in the 42nd and 49th minute.
Rizespor’s recent game against Adana Demirspor ended in a home 1-3 loss. Karadeniz Atmacası (The Black Sea Sparro had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Rizespor deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 80th minute.
Since the start of the season, Altay is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 11 games on home soil. Although Altay is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 9% home clean sheets.
Rizespor has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Rizespor wins 0.18 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Rizespor kept a clean sheet in just 9% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Altay lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 27% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.
This season hasn’t unfolded as planned, and Karadeniz Atmacası (The Black Sea Sparro haven’t tasted an away victory at all. The visitors have lost 82% of all games on the road while conceding on average 2.36 goals in the process.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Altay wins on average 0.91 points per home game, compared to 0.18 points per away game for Rizespor. My prediction is Altay to win.
