Thursday is not the busiest day of the week in terms of football. If there are no matches on the European arena, which is especially important now, in the middle of winter, then it’s mainly the cups that help. This will be the case now and in Turkey the great Fenerbahce will play in this format, which will host Rizespor. Is there a bit of intrigue in such a pair? Readers of the website can read the original forecast for the match on January 19, 2023.

Fenerbahce have high hopes for this season

“Canaries” have not been able to confirm their undoubted status as national football giants of “fresh” trophies for quite a long time. To finally win the Super League (and maybe something else) in the summer, Jorge Jesus was called in and conducted a large-scale transfer campaign. On the road, however, I had to “slip” at the start, but in the autumn the hail was really strong and convincing. The only embarrassing thing is that misfires have become more frequent closer to the middle of winter. First there was a loss to the reigning champions, Trabzonspor. And the derby with Galatasaray ended with the score 0:3. Moreover, Gaziantep mostly fine-tuned the game only thanks to Enner Valencia’s extra-time goal.

Rizespor is now in the middle of the first division

After being promoted to the top flight in 2018, the Black Sea Hawks were able to stay there for 4 seasons in a row – a good result for this modest team. But last season there was only 17th place – and relegation. That was 5 years ago and it turned out that it came back right away. It would seem that this can be repeated without any particular problems, especially since the clip features players on the level of Yannick Bolazi. But in reality, the results are not enough to stay at the top. So with Kechiorengyucu in the last round it was only a 1-1 draw.

Previous matches

Fenerbahce have great statistics with Rizespor. Suffice it to say that at the moment the “canaries” have 7 wins in a row, including 10-0 as a result of several meetings of the last championship.
