Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 04/03/2017 shows that these fixtures have not been good ones for Çaykur Rizespor. They’ve not managed to get any wins whatsoever while Beşiktaş have just been stronger than them, running out winners in 83 per cent of those matches played.
There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 26 overall at an average of 4.33 goals per match.

Team News: Çaykur Rizespor
Çaykur Rizespor manager Bülent Uygun has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all before this match with a completely healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Beşiktaş
Beşiktaş manager Sergen Yalçın has a number of players out of action. Vincent Aboubakar (Hamstring Injury), Oguzhan Özyakup (Calf Strain), Ajdin Hasic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Cenk Tosun (Patella rupture) can’t be considered. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Necip Uysal, Valentin Rosier and Muhayer Oktay.
We feel that Çaykur Rizespor have enough to breach the defence of this Beşiktaş lineup, although one goal possibly won’t be enough to give them the result that they want.
We can see a very close game with a 1-2 win for Beşiktaş when all is said and done. There looks to be little in this one.
