Bursaspor 1 – 1 Rizespor – Bursaspor drop points at home


Bursaspor have dropped points at home in a 1-1 draw with Rizespor in the league.


The Green Crocodiles looked on course for a comfortable win when Bakambu scored an early goal in the first half. Rizespor looked the stronger outfit after the break and Kweuke levelled the score in the 52nd minute.

The Black Sea based side had the chance to come away with all three points with a penalty in the 60th minute however, Kweuke failed to convert.

Serdar Aziz will miss next weeks encounter due to a red card he received after bringing Kweuke down in the box.

Rizespor remain in the relegation zone following todays draw, two points behind Eskisehirspor who are one spot above in 15th.

Bursaspor have slipped behind Istanbul Basaksehir into 5th place and could fall down to 6th place if Trabzonspor record a victory over Kasimpasa tomorrow.

Rizespor take on Eskisehirspor in the league next weekend while Bursaspor host Mersin Idmanyurdu.
