Istanbul’s preparations for this game could not have been worse. They have played 3 pre-season friendlies so far this summer and lost all 3. Rijeka had a below par pre-season with 2 draws and a loss. However, since the Croatian 1.HNL got underway, they have a 100% win record and sit top of the league. Last season, Istanbul finished in 4th position. This is the final spot that allows a team from the Turkish Super Lig to get into Europe. Rijeka finished in 2nd place. In many European countries that would be enough to get into the Champions League qualifications. In Croatia, it is enough for only qualifying rounds of Europa League.

A lot of movement in the transfer market for Rijeka. No less than 12 new players are available for them this coming season. 5 players have made way with transfers away from the club.

Istanbul have lost all 3 pre-season games, scoring 0 and conceding 4. Since Rijeka have been back from their summer break, they have scored 9 goals in the last 3 of their total 5 games. 2 of those games were in the league and the other was their 2-2 friendly draw at home to Aluminij. Despite the 2 pre-season friendlies Istanbul have lost, they have only lost 2 games at home in the previous 11 matches. They drew 2-2 to Besiktas at home. They also beat Fenerbahce 2-1.

Istanbul have managed to keep hold of top scorer Edin Visca. Last season he bagged 17 goals in 34 games in the league, averaging 1 goal every other game. He will be vital in both domestic and European competitions with goal ratios like that. Rijeka have Roman Bezjak on their roster, he was a big part of Rijeka’s attacking force last season. He scored 13 goals in 32 games.

We predict that this game will buck trends, despite what we have seen since June. Our betting tips for this game is a 2-1 win for Istanbul at 15/2 with bet365. We are also going for Over 2.5 Match Goals at 1/1 with bet365.
