Fenerbahce - Rizespor
The game of the 15th round of the Turkish championship, the weakest team in the league this season, Rizespor, is playing against Fenerbahce, perhaps the most famous Turkish team.
The expectations of the management and fans are much higher than the results shown so far on the table, because Fenerbahce is a team that wants to fight for the title, but already has a long way behind the leading team Trabzon, and victory against Fenerbahce at home for the home team must not come into question, because the championship is of exceptional quality and every point in the fight for a high ranking is of great importance.
As a guest this season, Rize recorded 7 defeats in the same number of games with a goal difference of 4:19, which makes them the worst away team, and even slightly worse form of the hosts at home, where they scored only 11 points in 6 matches, seems dominant enough in relation to the rival, followed by a frantic struggle for survival in the elite.
A possible victory of Fenerbahce would partly return them to the top of the table, which would make the home team more satisfied and they have to show their class on the field.
Some important players will not play for Fenerbahce, but the length of the bench (reserve players) is wide enough to have enough quality players who can make up for the absences of Eder Valencia and Miha Zajc, at least against the lowest ranked team in the table.
Even when Rize was in a much better situation than now, he was not a worthy rival to the renowned Fenerbahce, so even today, despite some staffing problems for the host, they do not get too many opportunities to surprise, so we can expect a sure, even convincing victory.
