Goztepe vs Sivasspor Prediction & Betting tips
The Yigidos from Sivas can still have CL ambitions. On the last day of the Süper Lig, there is still a chance for runners-up in the Turkish House of Lords with marksmen. This would also give the red and whites a right to start for the premier class on their own. But even without rifle aid, a victory in Izmir is very important.
If Trabzonspor is actually excluded from the international competitions, third place in the Süper Lig gets the CL start right. At the moment the Yigidos are in that table position, but with Besiktas they have a chase close behind them.
As the odds comparison of the betting base shows, on day 34 of the Süper Lig the third place in the table is the Süper Lig in the favorites role. It is quite possible that the third win in a row for Sivasspor is waving.
For Göztepe it will probably be the last game under the current trainer Ilhan Palut. According to current media reports, the 43-year-old should take over the newcomer from Hatay in the coming season. One of the main reasons for this is the course of the second half of the season. The people in charge at “Göz Göz” have no understanding of form crises.
In the last eleven games, Göztepe has only had one win. A relegation battle could be avoided thanks to the strong points from the first half of the season. As the current form of the yellow-red shows, it would not be surprising if Göztepe conceded the third loss in a row at the end of the season. Recently there were two defeats in which “Göz Göz” conceded a total of six goals.
At home in Gürsel Aksel Stadium, the home advantage of the yellow-red team is significantly limited by the ghostly backdrop arrangement by the Turkish Football Association. Since the Süper Lig re-start, none of the last four home games have been won. Göztepe coach Palut will have to do without numerous offensive players due to injuries this weekend.
Sivasspor wants to achieve a conciliatory end of the season after the strong first half of the season and hopes for a start right for the premier class. After two consecutive wins, the Yigidos sense the chance of the runner-up championship on the last day of the Süper Lig. Trabzonspor, currently in second place in the table, is only two points away. But Besiktas sits close to the neck.
If the match is won in Izmir, there will be a chance of second place in the table with marksmen. However, if Sivasspor leaves feathers, fourth place in the table may even threaten. The minimum goal for the autumn champions of the current season is the third place in the table this season. Following on from the latest achievements, three points at Göztepe should not be at risk.
In the last two weeks, the Red-Whites have taken two wins, including an away win at Fenerbahce (2-1). Sivasspor coach Riza Calimbay can use his full offensive arsenal for the last time on the last match day of the current 2019/20 season before a major change in the squad is due in summer.
Top performers like Kilinc, Yandas and Arslan are faced with a departure. The future of Calimbay is still uncertain, especially since the 57-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and a contract extension with Sivasspor is still pending. The match on Saturday evening will only miss Claudemir due to injury. Sivasspor has no further downtimes.
