Denizlispor will be visiting Çaykur Didi Stadyumu on Sunday for the Super Lig game with home side Çaykur Rizespor.
Our tips, poll and stats for Çaykur Rizespor v Denizlispor can all be found here (inc. the best betting odds).
Çaykur Rizespor will be looking for an improved result here following the 6-0 Super Lig loss in their previous game against Beşiktaş.
Cyle Larin (19', 31', 79', 83'), Oğuzhan Özyakup (56') and Ajdin Hasić (89') scored for Beşiktaş.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games that Çaykur Rizespor have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Atmacalar have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 13 goals on the way. Let’s find out whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
Their prior results show that Çaykur Rizespor:
- have not registered a win against Denizlispor in their previous 3 matches in the league.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 home league matches.
After a losing effort in their last game against Kayserispor in Super Lig competition, Denizlispor will be hoping to turn things around here.
Pedro Henrique (21') was the scorer for Kayserispor.
The numbers tell their own story, and Denizlispor have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 9 goals overall. Defensively, Horozlar certainly have room for improvement.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Denizlispor:
- have not emerged victorious against Çaykur Rizespor when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- have not been beaten in their last 2 away league matches.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 23/12/2007, there has been little between the sides with Çaykur Rizespor winning 2 of those games, Denizlispor 2 and 2 being draws after 90 minutes of play.
19 goals were scored between the two sides in this period, with 8 of them for Atmacalar and 11 netted by Horozlar. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.17.

The referee was Cüneyt Çakır.
Team News: Çaykur Rizespor
Çaykur Rizespor boss Stjepan Tomas will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of before this clash thanks to a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Denizlispor
Denizlispor manager Yalçın Koşukavak has to choose a team with limited availability. Mustafa Yumlu (Thigh Muscle Strain), Neven Subotic (Groin Strain), Sakib Aytac (Thigh muscle rupture), Özgür Cek (Achilles tendon rupture) and Fede Varela (Thigh muscle rupture) will not be playing here. Oguz Yilmaz will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Our assessment is that Denizlispor are capable enough to breach the defence of this Çaykur Rizespor lineup, although it probably won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our selection here is for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Çaykur Rizespor when all is said and done. Let’s see what happens here.
