We are backing the draw at odds of 2/1
When: Sunday, 17th May 2020, kick-off 13:00
Where: The Stadyen Spartak
On Sunday afternoon, Belshina Bobruisk host Vitebsk at the Stadyen Spartak, as the home search for their first league win of the season in the Belarus Premier League.
The home team have endured a nightmare start to the new league campaign. They have failed to win in their opening eight league matches of the season while picking up just two points in the process. Their poor results this season has seen the home side drop to the bottom of the league table.
Last time out, they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Isloch, which was their third straight Premier League defeat. The defeat also saw Belshina concede at least two goals for their consecutive match in the Belarussian top-flight.
Their last three league matches have produced over 2.5 goals, while both teams have scored in four of their last five matches in the Belarus top-flight.
Belshina have a woeful recent home record in the Premier League, having failed to win in ten matches on home soil. To make matters worse, they have also won just once in 16 league matches on their own patch. Their recent Premier League games at home have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven matches.
The visitors have made an inconsistent start to their 2020 league campaign, as they have picked up 11 points from their eight matches. A recent record of one win in their last five league matches is not a great one. Last time out, Vitebsk drew 0-0 at home against Shakhter Soligorsk, which means they have now failed to win in three league outings.
Their recent league matches have been tight, low-scoring affairs with under 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last ten games in the Belarus Premier League.
Vitebsk have been poor on their travels of late in the top-flight, as they have won just once in their previous six away games, suffering four defeats in the process. Their recent league matches on the road have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last eight away games. The fact that the visitors have scored just twice in their previous six matches on their travels, having failed to score in four of those six matches.
Both teams head into this clash in poor form. Belshina will see this game as a winnable one. However, Vitebsk have been very underwhelming on their travels of late. Weighing up those two factors, we are backing the draw. The other bet we are recommending is under 2.5 goals scored, as we believe this will be a relatively tight encounter.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 2/1 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
