Prediction and odds for the game: Isloch (21/20) v Slavia Mozyr (13/5)
We are backing the draw at odds of 23/10
When: Saturday 18th April 2020, Kick-off 12 PM
Where: The Stadyen Haradski
On Saturday afternoon, Isloch host Slavia Mozyr at the Stadyen Haradski, as both teams attempt to find some form of consistency in the Belarus Premier League.
The home side started the new league campaign in promising fashion by winning their opening two games in the top-flight. However, their form has dipped of late, as they head into this game on the back of two straight defeats against Slutsk and Dinamo Brest. Not only did Isloch suffer defeats in both games, but they have also conceded three goals in each game.
The goals conceded may not have been a major surprise, as the home side has now kept just two clean sheets in 17 Premier League games. Those two clean sheets came in the opening gameweek victories, so they will be looking to get back that defensive solidity.
Isloch have an inconsistent recent home record in the Premier League, winning just two of their last nine games. However, on the flip side, a 3-2 defeat against Slutsk in their last home match ended a six-game unbeaten run on home soil. Their recent home matches in the league have been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last nine Premier League matches.
Just like the hosts, Slavia have enjoyed a mixed start to the new Premier League campaign, although the visitors have picked up one more point than Isloch.
After an opening gameweek defeat by Slutsk, Slavia are currently three games unbeaten in the Belarus top-flight, recording two wins and a draw. The draw was last time out when in their home game with Ruh Brest produced a goalless draw.
The draw was a rare low-scoring match for the visitors, as their previous seven games had all produced over two games each. Slavia themselves contributed to those high-scoring games by scoring at least twice in four of their last six league outings.
Slavia have struggled to find consistency on their travels of late, as they have won just two of their last five matches on the road. Their recent away games have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six league matches on their travels, including their last four away matches in the top-flight.
Both these teams have been inconsistent this season in the league, which seems to be a trend in the Belarus Premier League. Isloch have been relatively strong on home soil, while Slavia have been unpredictable on their travels. That is why we are sitting on the fence and backing the draw. The other bet we are recommending is to back the under 2.5 goals, as Isloch’s recent home games have been low-scoring.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 23/10 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 13/20. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
