Kasımpaşa form and stats

In their previous game, the manager M. Altıparmak led his Kasımpaşa to a defeat in the Super Lig match away at Kayserispor. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Stadyumu. Ahead of that match, Kasımpaşa won a home game hosting Istanbul Basaksehir (3-2).

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Kasımpaşa have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found twelve games) they have won eight times, drawn zero and lost four.

Last season, Kasımpaşa's league statistics were 12 wins, 7 draws and 15 losses, resulting in a 10th position in the Super Lig. Over these 34 matches they scored 53 goals and conceded 58. Playing at home last season Kasımpaşa managed 7-3-7 (win-draw-lost) with 30 goals and 25 conceded.

Rizespor form and stats

Rizespor's previous game was their home loss versus Fenerbahce (1-2). Prior to that match, the Rizespor manager S. Tomas faced defeat when travelling to Fenerbahce and losing 1-3.

It's a bit worrying for Rizespor that their goalkeeper G. Akkan made six saves in the Fenerbahce game last time out, but still couldn''t prevent the loss.

Rizespor are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is three wins, three draws and four defeats. From a total of ten matches.

Let's have a look at how Rizespor performed last season in the Super Lig: They landed a 15th position in the league table after playing out 10 victories, 5 draws and 19 defeats. In total they scored 38 and conceded 57 goals in these matches. The numbers for away games only are: Won 2 - drew 2 and lost 13 with 12/37 goals scored/conceded.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Kasımpaşa seven wins, one draw and Rizespor two victories. As for goals, six matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four games had two or less.
