Prediction and odds for the game: Slavia Mozyr (19/10) v Torpedo Zhodino (8/5)
We are backing the away win
When: Saturday 9th May, Kick-off 13:00
Where: The Stadyen Junatsva
On Saturday afternoon, Slavia Mozyr host Torpedo Zhodino at the Stadyen Junatsva, as the visitors look to stay amongst the leading pack in the Belarussian Premier League.
The home side has made a distinctly mixed start to the new league campaign in the Premier League. They have garnered just ten points from their opening seven games and are amongst several clubs who have made a similarly inconsistent start to the new league campaign.
A 3-2 defeat at Vitebsk at least ended a three-game winless run for Slavia. The game was another high-scoring league match for the home side in the Premier League, as six of their seven matches this season has produced over 2.5 goals.
Slavia have struggled for any sort of form on home soil in the Belarussian top-flight of late, winning just three of their last 11 home games in the Premier League. The fact that they have kept just one clean sheet in 11 matches on home soil has not helped their chances of recording more victories.
The home side has a woeful recent record against Torpedo, as they have failed to win any of the last seven meetings while suffering six defeats in the process.
The visitors have made a solid start to the new Belarus Premier League campaign. Torpedo currently side second in the table, trailing leaders Slutsk by just two points.
They head into this game on the back of a four-game unbeaten run in the top-flight, having picked up two wins and two draws. Last time out Torpedo produced an impressive 5-2 victory at Minsk. The result ended a run of low-scoring games in the league, as their previous six league games this season had all produced under 2.5 goals.
The visitors have been slightly travel sick of late in the Belarus top-flight. They have won just two of their last eight away games in the league. Torpedo have however picked up four points from their last two league matches on their travels. Their recent away games in the Belarussian top-flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four away matches.
One major positive for the visitors that good record against Slavia. They have won on their last five trips to Slavia, while also scoring at least twice in five of their last six games.
Although Torpedo’s recent away record is unconvincing, they are in decent form and have a good record in this fixture. With those two factors considered we are backing the away win. We are also backing the over 2.5 goals scored, as this fixture usually produces goals.
Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 8/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 7/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
