Goztepe - Rize
Goztepe are on the 8th position and they are away of the relegation battle. Nevertheless, the actual form is bad - they have 3 defeats on the last 3 matches. Goztepe lost to Kayserispor, Istanbul Basaksehir and Kasimpasa. Even worse, they failed to score a single goal on the mentioned three matches. Worst of all, coach Parlatan will be missing the best scorer Serdar Gurler through injury. Rizespor, meanwhile, are in very complicated situation as they are on the 16th place. The current form is awful, they have 5 defeats on the last 6 matches in SuperLig. To be worse, coach Unal Karaman has two suspended players - Mykola Morozyuk and Ismael Diomande. The absence of the mentioned duo is a big handicap as they are regulars.
I expect Under 2.5 goals in Izmir. The match will be played behind closed doors and that s the key reason for my pick. It is strange feeling to play at empty stadium. All three matches in Saturday ended that way, two of three matches played on Sunday also finished with low scoring results. Yesterday s match between Antalyaspor and Sivasspor also produced just one goal.
