. Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Sivasspor v Denizlispor - plus the latest match odds.
Sivasspor will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Süper Lig loss in their previous game against Antalyaspor. Veysel Sarı (81') scored for Antalyaspor.
Riza Çalımbay's Sivasspor have found the net a sum total of 8 times in their last 6 outings. Conversely, the number of goals that they have conceded in those same games stands at 6.
Denizlispor go into this meeting after a 1-0 Süper Lig win with the downing of Gençlerbirliği in their most recent match. The only name on the scoresheet from Denizlispor was Hugo Rodallega (54').
The trend of at least one team not scoring a goal in games featuring Denizlispor has been fairly consistent recently. Checking on their last 6 games reveals that this has occurred 5 times. During those clashes, opposing sides have managed a goal total of 5 and Horozlar have scored 5. It will be interesting to find out if that trend can be sustained here.
Head to head
A look at their past head to head meetings going back to 04/04/2009 shows that Sivasspor have won 4 of these games and Denizlispor 1, with the tally of drawn matches standing at 1.
In all, 16 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 11 for Yiğidolar and 5 for Horozlar. The average goals per game has been 2.67.
The previous league game between these sides was Süper Lig match day 10 on 03/11/2019 which finished with the scoreline of Denizlispor 0-2 Sivasspor. The referee was Zorbay Küçük.
Team News: Sivasspor
Fernando Andrade (Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury), Hakan Arslan (Meniscus Damage) and Sergiy Rybalka (Knee Surgery) will be missing for Sivasspor boss Riza Çalımbay. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Marcelo Goiano, Sergiy Rybalka and Cem Özdemir.
It’s our opinion that Yiğidolar look set to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, utilising Mamadou Samassa, Ugur Ciftci, Caner Osmanpasa, Aaron Appindangoye, Baris Yardimci, Hakan Arslan, Fatih Aksoy, Emre Kilinc, Mert Hakan Yandas, Fernando and Mustapha Yatabare.
Team News: Denizlispor
From a largely full-strength group, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Denizlispor gaffer Bülent Uygun to be concerned about. Isaac Sackey (Bowel Surgery) won’t be in action.
We are inclined to think that Horozlar might begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 system using Adam Stachowiak, Zeki Yavru, Oğuz Yılmaz, Muhammet Özkal, Tiago Lopes, Radoslaw Murawski, Ogenyi Onazi, Hadi Sacko, Ismaël Aissati, Olcay Sahan and Hugo Rodallega.
We’re inclined to think that Sivasspor should really create enough chances to score more than one when they face Denizlispor, who might well find it a difficult task scoring a goal of their own. We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 2-0 winning score for Sivasspor at the conclusion of the game.
