Besiktas to win the game and total goals over 2.5

This has been one of the high-scoring fixtures for Besiktas in recent years with the team managing a remarkable average of three goals per game in the last six matches. Just two of the last six meetings between these two teams has been a low scoring game with less than 2.5 goals. On five of these occasions, Besiktas have come out on top. The home advantage coupled with this psychological edge is likely to give the defending champions a positive opening to the season.

Besiktas to score more than 2.5 goals

Even though the pre-season was muted, Besiktas have a strong scoring record against Rizespor after managing to get 20 past this opponent in the last six attempts. This includes a three-goal return in the latest meeting between these two teams back in April.

Goals from both teams – yes

Rizespor managed a decent return towards the end of last season by scoring in the last four league encounters. In fact, they even finished the campaign’s away games with a 5-4 win Gaziantep FK. This flourish in away games is likely to continue with the new season providing a lot of optimism.

Besiktas vs Rizespor: Match Preview and Team News

Besiktas

After winning the championship last season, Besiktas will once again be eyeing a similarly successful season. There have not been major moves in the transfer market apart from the €4.5 million signing of Valentin Rosier. Coach Sergen Yalcin appears to be relatively satisfied with his squad so far, but Besiktas could still bring in PSG goalkeeper Sergio Rico. Alex Teixeira and Atakan Üner are unavailable for this match.

Rizespor

Rizespor were able to avoid the drop last season by managing to finish just a couple of places above the bottom four. Bülent Uygun will be hoping for a better campaign this time around and the ability to avoid relegation last season will serve as a motivation for the team in the upcoming campaign. There are no injury problems for Uygun.
