We are backing the away win
When: Saturday 18th April 2020, Kick-off 4 PM
Where: The Stadyen Central’ny Vitsyebski
On Saturday afternoon, FK Vitebsk host Dinamo Brest in the Belarus Premier League, as both teams look to overcome inconsistent starts to their campaigns.
The home side has picked up seven points from a possible 12 in the Belarus Premier League so far. Last time out, Vitebsk drew 1-1 away at Slutsk. The draw means that they have won just twice in their last nine league outings.
Their most recent games in the Belarus top-flight have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last nine matches, including their last six league games.
Vitebsk’s recent home record in the top-flight has been highly inconsistent, as they have won just two of their last ten outings in the Belarus top-flight. They have also suffered two defeats in their last three matches in the Premier League. Their recent matches on home soil have been tight and low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five games on home soil.
Vitebsk have a woeful recent record against the visitors, as they failed to beat them in seven games while suffering six defeats in the process. The home team has also failed to score in the last three meetings with the reigning champions.
The champions have endured a mixed start to their campaign, picking up seven points from their opening four matches in the Belarus Premier League. One positive for the visitors is that despite an inconsistent start to their campaign, Dinamo have suffered just one defeat from their last 19 matches in the Belarussian top-flight. Last time out, they recorded a 3-1 win over Isloch, after suffering a shock 2-1 home defeat against Slavia Mozyr.
Dinamo have a very strong recent away record in the Belarus Premier League, as they are unbeaten in 17 matches away from home. They have recorded 14 victories in that recent unbeaten run on their travels. The visitors have only failed to score once in their 17-game unbeaten run away from home. Both teams have scored in three of Dinamo’s last four away matches in the top-flight.
The visitor’s recent stellar record against Vitebsk will give them confidence that they can pick up another three points in this encounter.
Neither side has found any sort of form so far this season in the Belarussian top-flight. However, we are backing the away team to pull off a victory simply because of their strong away record. The other bet we are recommending is under 2.5 goals scored, as Vitebsk games tend to be tight affairs.
Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 7/10 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All bets are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
