We are backing the draw at odds of 12/5
When: Sunday 05th April 2020, Kick-off 4 PM
Where: The Stadyen Haradski
On Sunday afternoon, Isloch host Slutsk at the Stadyen Haradski in the Belarus Premier League, as the home side looks to continue their good start to the campaign.
The home side has made a good start to their league campaign. In fact, they have won both of their league outings 1-0 against Neman Grodno and last time out Smolevichi. The wins have lifted spirits amongst everybody connected with the club, as Isloch had finished last season with an inconsistent run of league form. They failed to win any of their last three league matches last season.
Isloch’s games have continued in the same vein from last season when it comes to goals, as six of the home sides last seven league outings have produced under 2.5 goals scored.
The home side has been a difficult team to beat on their own patch of late in the Premier League, as they are unbeaten in six home games. However, four of those unbeaten games have finished in draws. Like their recent matches in general, Isloch’s home games in the league have been low-scoring affairs.
The visitors have won one and lost one of their games in the Belarus Premier League so far this season. Slutsk kicked off their campaign in a positive manner with a 3-1 home win over Slavia Mozyr before a less positive 1-0 home defeat against reigning champions Dinamo Brest. The defeat against the champions ended a four-game unbeaten run in the league for the visitors dating back to last November.
Slutsk’s recent matches in the Premier League have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches.
This is the visitors first away game of the season the Premier League. However, they finished last season with a poor run on their travels, suffering defeat in four of their last five away games in the top-flight. A 3-0 win in their last away game of the campaign at Tarpeda ended a four-game losing streak on their travels.
Slutsk’s recent away games in the Belarus Premier League have been relatively high-scoring, as there have been at least two goals scored in four of their last five matches on their travels. They have kept just one clean sheet in five away games in the top-flight.
Isloch have started their campaign in decent form, but both their wins this season have been narrow. The recent history of this fixture is nip and tuck between the two teams. In fact, Isloch have won four and Slutsk have five of the last ten meetings. The closest of the fixture leads us to back the draw.
The other recommendation is to back the under 2.5 goals. Isloch’s recent games have been tight, while Slutsk are not prolific on their travels.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 12/5 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 1/2 (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
