When: Saturday 11th April 2020, Kick-off 12 PM
Where: The Stadyen Haradski
On Saturday afternoon, Slutsk host Vitebsk in the Belarus Premier League, as the home side looks to continue their good start to the campaign.
The home side has started their league campaign by recording two wins and suffering a defeat. Last time out Slutsk recorded a 3-2 win at Isloch. The victory means that the home side are currently second place in the table, level on six points with four other teams.
Slutsk’s recent Premier League matches have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five league outings.
The home side’s recent form on home soil in the Premier League has been poor, as they have won just two of their last seven matches. However, a 1-0 home defeat by Dinamo Brest in their last home game ended a four-game unbeaten home league run.
Their recent home matches in the Belarus Premier League have been relatively high-scoring, as six of their last nine matches have produced over 2.5 goals. However, Slutsk have also failed to score in four of their last six league matches on home soil.
The home side has struggled in recent meetings with the visitors, as they have beaten Vitebsk just once in six meetings.
Like the home side, Vitebsk have also won two of their three matches in the Belarus Premier League this season so far. Last time out in the league, the visitors recorded a 1-0 win at Smolevichi-STI. The result means that ten of their last 11 league matches have produced under 2.5 goals, including the last five games.
Vitebsk have struggled for results on their travels of late in the Belarus Premier League. In fact, they have lost four of their last six matches away from home in the top-flight. Their recent away matches have been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last seven away matches. The fact that Vitebsk have failed to score in all four recent away losses has been a big factor in the low-scoring games.
There has not much between these two teams. Both have made decent starts to the new campaign in the Belarus top-flight. With that in mind, we are backing the draw. The other recommendation from us is to back the under 2.5 goals. Slutsk’s home matches and Vitebsk’s recent away matches have both been low-scoring and we expect this game to follow suit.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 11/5 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 1/2. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
