Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Fenerbahçe v Sivasspor are shown on this page (plus the best game odds).
Fenerbahçe are hoping to win again after their last result, the 0-2 Super Lig triumph vs Altay.
In that game, Fenerbahçe managed 60% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. For Fenerbahçe, the goals were scored by Ferdi Kadıoğlu (51') and Enner Valencia (55'). Altay got 9 attempts on goal with 0 on target.
Their latest results show that much solidity has been shown by the Fenerbahçe rearguard. Fenerbahçe have kept it tight, seeing the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous six matches standing at 3. We will see whether or not that trend will be sustained here.
Ahead of this clash, Fenerbahçe haven't won against Sivasspor in their last 4 league games.
Previously, Sivasspor drew 2-2 in the Super Lig tie with Göztepe.
In that game, Sivasspor had 42% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 3 on target. The only player to score for Sivasspor was Dimitris Goutas (11', 66'). For their opponents, Göztepe had 8 shots on goal with 5 on target. Halil Akbunar (51') and Beykan Şimşek (84') scored for Göztepe.
The stats don’t lie, and Sivasspor have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 13 goals in total. At the back, Sivasspor can certainly do much better.
Ahead of this clash, Sivasspor are undefeated by Fenerbahçe in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.

Team News: Fenerbahçe
The Fenerbahçe boss Vítor Pereira has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash with a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Sivasspor
Sivasspor boss Riza Çalımbay has multiple availability issues to deal with. Leke James (Lumbar Vertebra Fracture) and Aaron Appindangoyé (Achilles tendon rupture) will not be playing here. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Fredrik Ulvestad and Olarenwaju Kayode.
Our feeling is that Fenerbahçe should score more than once when they play Sivasspor, who will be up against it scoring a goal of their own.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a comfortable 2-0 winning score for Fenerbahçe come full-time.
