Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Sivasspor v Kayserispor match are shown here (inc. the best betting odds).

For Sivasspor, the scorers were Max-Alain Gradel (11'), Olarenwaju Kayode (48'), Ahmet Oğuz (66' Own goal), Erdoğan Yeşilyurt (69') and Mustapha Yatabaré (86').
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Sivasspor have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Yiğidolar have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 8 goals along the way.
Pre-game facts show that Sivasspor:
- are undefeated in their previous 6 league matches at home.

Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, though.
