Prediction and odds for the game: Shakhter Soligorsk (3/5) v Isloch (17/4)
We are backing the over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 21/20
When: Sunday 3rd May 2020, Kick-off 6 PM
Where: The Stadyen Budaunik
On Sunday evening, Shakhter Soligorsk host Isloch at the Stadyen Budaunik, as the visitors look to stay amongst the frontrunners at the top of the Belarus Premier League.
The league table is so congested that Shakhter, who are currently in mid-table could move to within a point of the second-place visitors. Like many teams in the Belarus top-flight this season, Shakhter have enjoyed an inconsistent start to their league campaign. The home side could not have endured a more inconsistent campaign so far, winning two, drawing two and losing two of their league outings in season 2020.
A 4-2 semi-final cup win over Dinamo Brest means they have recorded two straight wins in all competitions. The mini-run hints at a return to form of the home side.
One disappointing aspect of their league campaign so far this season has been their home form. Shakhter have yet to win a home match in the current campaign, picking up just one draw and suffering two defeats in the process. Their recent home matches in the Belarus top-flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four outings.
A major positive for Shakhter is their recent record against Isloch. The home side has won eight of their last ten matches against the visitors in all competitions, suffering just one defeat.
The visitors have made a solid start to the new campaign in the Belarus top-flight, winning four of their six league matches so far. Their good form so far this season means they are only one point off the top of the table. A 2-0 win over Slutsk last time out means they have recorded back-to-back league wins. The game saw the visitors score at least two goals for the third time in four outings.
Isloch have lost their last two away games in the Belarus Premier League, although they have won just three of their last eight matches on their travels in the top-flight. They may not have a terrible recent away record, Isloch have been defensively vulnerable, conceding at least two goals in four of their last five league games on their travels. Their generous defensive has contributed to there being over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four away matches in the Premier League.
Shakhter have been something of a bogey team for Isloch and they have shown signs of a return to form in recent games. We are backing the home team to continue that good recent record against Isloch in this clash. We are also backing over 2.5 goals scored, as Isloch cannot defend away from home and Shakhter have scored at least twice in the last two games in all competitions.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 3/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 21/20 (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
