Sports Betting Today: Turkish Super Ligi PreviewPublished March 17, 2020 by Sol FH
Yes, there are still some sports that you can place a wager on. Goztepe vs. Rizespor today at 17:00 GMT.
The unfortunate, albeit necessary announcement that all professional sports leagues and events will be delayed or canceled until further notice was a blow to sports fans everywhere. The Champions League, Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, and virtually all other major leagues have done just that. But, there are still a few leagues that are in limited operation, including the Turkish Super Ligi. Teams are still playing in disinfected and empty stadiums across Turkey and this evening, we have the last of Matchday 21 of 34 between Goztepe and Rizespor.
The match will be played at Goztepe home stadium, but without their passionate fans, it's hard to call it an advantage. They are not the strongest team in eighth place in the league with a home record of 4-4-3 and an overall record of 9-7-9. But, they are up against arguably the worst road team in the league in Rizespor, who is in 16th place (out of 18 teams) and a road record of 2-2-8 and overall 7-4-14.
It should be a relatively easy match for the hosts and a win will bring them three points closer to Fenerbahce in seventh place. Goztepe is on a three-game losing streak but should be able to turn that around against Rizespor. Neither side is at its best and surely players and coaches will have a lot on their minds with the current Coronavirus pandemic spreading its way around the world. It is a surprise that we still have a few leagues in operation at all.
