Prediction and odds for the game: Gorodeya (15/8) v Neman Grodno (6/4)
We are backing the home win
When: Friday, 29th May 2020, Kick-off 18:00
Where: The Stadyen Haradzeya
On Friday evening. Gorodeya host Neman Grodno at the Stadyen Haradzeya, as both teams look to push up the table in the Belarus Premier League.
The home side has enjoyed a mixed start to the 2019 Premier League campaign and currently sit 12th place in the table. They head into this midtable encounter on the back of a five-game winless run in the top-flight, having picked up three draws and suffered two defeats. Last time out in the top-flight, Gorodeya drew 1-1 with Slavia Mozyr.
Gorodeya’s recent top-flight games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in ten of their last ten matches. However, both teams have scored in the home side’s last four league games.
If they are to push up the table, Gorodeya’s home form needs to improve in the near future. They head into this match having won just once in their last five league matches on home soil, having suffered three defeats in the process. In familiar trend, Gorodeya’s recent home matches in the Premier League have been low-scoring with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven outings.
The visitors are enduring a similar sort of campaign to the home side and trail their hosts by just a point in the table. They are just one point outside the relegation play-off. However, due to the congested nature of the table, a win could see the visitors leap up the top-flight table.
With just two wins from their last seven outings in the Belarus top-flight, a victory in this clash would be a welcome one. Neman Grodno goes into this game in high spirits though after a 3-1 home win over Torpedo Zhodino last time out.
The game was another goal-fest for the visitors, as their last four league matches have produced over 2.5 goals, three of them producing over 3.5 goals.
Igor Kovalevich’s team have been poor travels of late. They head into this clash on the back of a six-game winless run on their travels, having suffered five defeats in the process. The main cause of their recent poor league form on their travels is a lack of goals, as they have scored just twice in six away matches in the top-flight.
Both teams are in questionable league form, despite Neman Grodno’s win last time out. We are backing the home side to come out top in this clash, recording a victory in a low-scoring encounter. Gorodeya’s league games are notoriously low-scoring, while the visitors struggle to score on their travels.
Verdict: we are backing the home win at odds of 15/8 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
