Bafétimbi Gomis to score anytime

Bafetimbi Gomis began his second spell with Galatasaray with a bang after managing a brace in the win over Goztepe. Gomis is no stranger to Turkish football after having scored an incredible 29 goals in just 33 appearances for Galatasaray back in the 2017-18 campaign. The veteran comes in as the winter signing and he will be going up against Rizespor for the first time.

Total goals over 2.5

Galatasaray have witnessed more than 2.5 goals in three out of the last five matches in the Super Lig. Even though it is fair to expect much better defensive performances out of Galatasaray, the Giants have simply been unable to keep the door shut. Rizespor have not scored in three out of the last four games, but they are defensively poor.

Both teams to score – yes

Rizespor have a very poor away record with the team only managing one goal in the last five games on the road. However, this Galatasaray team refuses to be solid at the back and Galatasaray have not kept a clean sheet in any match in this calendar year.
