It’s been seldom in recent games that Çaykur Rizespor have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Çaykur Rizespor have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 11 goals during that time.
Going into this contest, Çaykur Rizespor have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
In their last game, Kayserispor drew 1-1 in the Super Lig match with Göztepe.

Kayserispor have had no problems opening up opposition defences in their most recent fixtures, having scored 9 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Hikmet Karaman will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Kayserispor have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same outings. We will have to see if that trend can be sustained here.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Kayserispor:
- have not registered a win against Çaykur Rizespor in games played away from home for the previous 3 league games.
