While most leagues around the world have ceased to play, in Turkey ghost games are continuing in rapid succession. The 26th matchday was completed last weekend. During the week it continues with a catch-up game. Göztepe welcomes the relegation-prone guests from Rize.
Goztepe vs Rizespor Free Betting Tips
As can be seen from the betting base odds comparison, Göztepe vs. Rizespor is the favorite in the match according to odds. The ghost scenery is certainly a significant limitation for the home side. The new stadium was inaugurated just a few weeks ago. Since then there have been largely sold-out sets in the three home games.
The home advantage of the yellow-red should therefore not be overestimated. Various components, such as the great support of your own followers, are no longer necessary with the ghost backdrop. The effects of the home advantage can normally have been explained in the betting base guide to the home advantage.
Rizespor is currently in a relegation battle. In the meantime, the Black Sea Club has already arrived at a relegation zone. In the basement duel against Ankaragücü, Rizespor suffered a bitter away defeat on the previous day. It was the fifth defeat in the last six games. With that, the momentum after the coaching change was missed.
Two weeks ago, Ünal Karaman took over the vacant coaching position with the Blue-Greens. So far, the desired change has not occurred after the change of coach. If Rizespor remains winless in Izmir, the second half of the season will not look rosy. The next big hurdle is already at the weekend with the home game against Galatasaray.
Göztepe – Statistics & current form
No hope of an international right to start? As the table of the Süper Lig shows, Göztepe is now ten points behind Besiktas. If there is no home win on Tuesday evening, placement among the top five teams can almost be ruled out – and thus also an international right to start.
Fifth in the table in the EL?
In the Turkish Cup, Trabzonspor is currently a team that is fighting for the championship in the Süper Lig and is expected to complete the season among the top four teams. If the Bordeaux-Blues win the Turkish Cup, the fifth-placed Süper Lig will also get a start right for the Europa League qualification.
Therefore, the teams are currently striving for the best possible table placement in the middle table of the Turkish House of Lords. In this case it would be fifth place for Göztepe. Since the yellow-red team has been without a win four times in a row, the euphoria about the “new” objectives has shrunk somewhat.
Empty ranks in the Gürsel Aksel Stadium
A few weeks ago, the new stadium was inaugurated with great anticipation. In the last three home games, the Gürsel Aksel Stadium has been a real cauldron. Now Göztepe will play for the first time in the new stadium in front of a ghost backdrop. The yellow-red will certainly feel the lack of support from the twelfth man.
It remains to be seen whether the strong home record of 4-4-3 will continue. In the last home game, Göztepe suffered a 0-3 home defeat against Basaksehir, the runner-up of the Süper Lig. Although the yellow-reds had more of the game, they remained far too harmless on the offensive. Speaking of offensive: With only 29 goals, Göztepe is one of the worst offensives in the league.
Coach Ilhan Palut is expected to have only two failures on Tuesday evening. No major changes are expected in the starting eleven. If Göztepe wins against Rizespor, odds of 1.83 will be paid out for tip 1.
Probable lineups of Göztepe:
↪ Beto – Emir, Titi, Borges, Gassama – Poko, Castro – Tripic, Mossoro, Akbunar – Wilczek

Rizespor – Statistics & current form
The relegation battle is coming to a head. Rizespor has returned to the red zone for the first time since the eighth game day in the Süper Lig. The defeat in the basement duel in Ankara was a bitter setback for the blue-green from Rize. Ünal Karaman was unable to nicely explain his team’s weak offensive performance. Some changes may be expected on Tuesday evening.
Abroad, the Blue-Greens have only scored ten goals in their twelve away games this season. The streak of bad luck on foreign terrain continued in the last away game. Rizespor had more of the game than Ankaragücü and also generated more chances to score, but could not reflect the good statistics in the result.
If there is still no point gain on Tuesday evening, the crisis is likely to worsen. At the weekend, the home game against Galatasaray is a difficult hurdle. In the away game against Göztepe, the blue-greens already need one point to move to the saving bank.
Out of season for Umar Aminu
Ünal Karaman will have two failures on Tuesday evening. With Umar Aminu, Rizespor is still an important key player. The Nigerian winger from the Black Sea club recently suffered a cruciate ligament tear and will therefore no longer appear in the second half of the season. Right-back Moroziuk is also missing after his recent dismissal.
For Moroziuk, Ovacikli is expected to start as a right-back. The offensive trio Samudio, Skoda and Boldrin remain unchanged. In midfield, Amedej Vetrih will most likely replace Abdullah Durak.
Probable lineups of Rizespor:
↪ Akkan – Melnjak, Albayrak, Talbi, Ovacikli – Diomande, Vetrih – Samudio, Harmash, Boldrin – Skoda

Göztepe is in the no man’s land of the Süper Lig. With the away bust in Istanbul, hopes for a possible placement among the top five teams have shrunk. For the yellow-reds there have been three defeats and one draw in the last four games. Since the home game takes place on Tuesday evening in front of a ghost backdrop, the home advantage should not be overestimated.
This time there will be no cauldron atmosphere in the Gürsel Aksel Stadium. It remains to be seen whether Rizespor can take advantage of the circumstances and take important points with them in the relegation battle. The Black Sea soccer players from the Turkish tea city are the weakest away team in the league with an away record of 2-2-8.
