Prediction and odds for the game: Neman Grodno (13/10) v Energetik-BGU (2/1)
We are backing the home win
When: Friday 24th April 2020, Kick-off 6 PM
Where: Stadyen Nyoman
On Friday evening, Neman Grodno host Energetik at the Stadyen Nyoman, as both teams look to get back to winning ways after defeats last time out.
The home side has made a mixed start to their campaign in the Belarus Premier League. They have picked up just five points from the same amount of league games this season.
Neman Grodno have won just once in the league this season, while also winning just once in their last seven Premier League games dating back to last season. They have now failed to win in three league games, suffering a 2-0 defeat at Dinamo Minsk last time out in the Premier League. Their recent league matches have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last five Premier League matches.
Neman Grodno have a strong recent home record in the Belarus top-flight, having mounted a five-game unbeaten run on home soil, recording three wins and picking up two draws. Their recent home games in the league have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in ten of their last 11 matches in the top-flight.
The home side has only faced the visitors twice in the Premier League, picking up a win and a draw, having not suffered a defeat in the process.
The visitors started the Belarus Premier League campaign in good form, winning their opening three games. However, since the good start to the league campaign, things have gone downhill, as a 1-0 defeat last time out against Gorodeya means they have suffered two straight defeats. The loss means that their last four league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Despite the recent defeats, Energetik are still fifth-place in the table. If results go the way of the visitors in gameweek six they could return to the top of the table.
Energetik have struggled for consistency on their travels in the Belarus Premier League, winning just two of their last five away matches in the league. In fact, the visitors have won just three of their last nine league matches on the road. Their recent away league games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five away games in the Belarus Premier League. However, Energetik have kept just two clean sheets in their last 16 away games in the top-flight.
Both teams head into this match in questionable form. However, we are backing the home win, as generally Neman Grodno are decent on home soil, while the visitors are inconsistent on the road. We are also backing the over 2.5 goals because Energetik struggle for away clean sheets. Meanwhile, the home side has only failed to score in one home game in their last seven outings.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 13/10 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 6/4. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
