Prediction and odds for the game: Gorodeya (31/20) vs (Minsk (17/10)
We are backing the away win
When: Friday 8th May 2020, Kick-off 5 PM
Where: The Stadyen Haradzeya
On Friday night, Gorodeya host Minsk at the Stadyen Haradzeya in the Belarus Premier League, as both teams search for consistency this season.
The home team have started the new league campaign in an inconsistent manner. They have taken ten points from their first seven league games of the season. Last time out, Gorodeya drew 1-1 with Ruh Brest. The result means that the home sides last eight league matches, including all seven matches this season have produced under 2.5 goals.
The home side’s recent home form in the Premier League rather illustrates their general form, in that it has been inconsistent. Gorodeya have now won just three of their last nine league games on home soil. More recently, they have lost in three of their last four home matches. They suffered a 2-0 defeat against BATE in their last league match on home soil.
Their most recent Premier League games on home soil have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six matches, including their last three home games.
The team from the Belarussian capital have found consistency hard to come by this season. The visitors are just a point behind the home side and would leapfrog them in the table with a victory. The season started so well for Minsk, as they recorded two straight victories. However, since the double win, they have suffered four defeats in their last five league games. Last time out in the league they suffered a humiliating 5-2 home defeat against Torpedo Zhodino.
It was another high-scoring game for Minsk in the Belarus Premier League, as five of their seven league matches this season have produced over 2.5 goals.
Minsk have not been great travellers in the Belarus top-flight in the last few seasons. The visitors have recorded just two wins in their previous seven away games in the top-flight, suffering four defeats in the process. Their recent away games in the Premier League have generally been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven matches on their travels in the league.
One positive for Minsk is that they are unbeaten in five visits to Gorodeya, recording four wins in the process. They have also scored at least twice in all four of those victories too.
You are never quite sure what you are going to get with Gorodeya. Minsk have been on a terrible run of form. However, the visitors have a good record in this fixture and are taking a punt on the away win. We are also backing this to be low-scoring, backing under 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 17/10 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 11/20.[geosnippet id=3620]
