When: Sunday 26th April 2020, Kick-off 4 PM
Where: The Stadyen Haradski
On Sunday afternoon, Isloch host Vitebsk in the Belarus Premier League, as the visitors look to move to the top of the table.
The home side has made a mixed start to their league campaign in the Belarus top-flight. They opened their campaign with two straight wins against Neman Grodno and Smolevichi before defeats against Slutsk and Dinamo Minsk. However, last time out the visitors got back to winning ways by recording a 2-1 win over Slavia Mozyr. The result means that their last three league matches have all produced over 2.5 goals.
However, their recent games dating back to last season have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight Premier League matches.
Isloch have been difficult to beat on their own patch of late, as they have suffered just one defeat in their last eight league games on home soil, having scored in all the eight matches. They have also won three of their last four home matches in the Premier League.
The home side has won just two of their last six meetings with Vitebsk, including suffering three defeats in the last four meetings.
The visitors could move to the top of the Belarus Premier League if results go their way this weekend, as they kick-off the gameweek just a point behind the home team in the table. A 1-0 home win against Dinamo Minsk means that the visitors are unbeaten in three league outings, having recorded two wins and a draw.
All Vitebsk’s games this season in the Premier League have produced under 2.5 goals. In fact, their last seven league games dating back to last season have produced under 2.5 goals.
The visitors have a poor recent away record in the Premier League, winning just once in their last five matches on their travels. They have also won just four times in 14 away games in the top-flight. However, they have taken four points from a possible since away from home.
Their recent away games have been tight affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight matches on their travels. Vitebsk have won on two of their last three visits to Isloch. They have also lost just once in their last four matches at Isloch.
Both teams will be relatively pleased with their starts to the new campaign. Another win in this clash would keep either side in touch with teams at the top of the table. We are backing the home team to record a victory, while also backing the low-scoring game, so under 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 21/10 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
