Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Neman Grodno win
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Really enjoying a stunning end to this year’s campaign, European chasers Neman Grodno will make the trip to a struggling Energetyk-BGU on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Energetyk-BGU might have managed to come from behind and snatch a point off of relegation scrappers Gorodeya last week, it does not cover what has been a woeful run of form for the Students. Collecting just a single point over any of their last four Premier League outings and continuing to slide down the table, Head Coach Vladimir Belyavskiy finds his side dealing with some rather glaring issues defensively. With the mood in their camp arguably at a season-low, Energetyk-BGU are a side still feeling the effects of their embarrassing defeat at the hands of Ruh Brest last month. Putting in what was a comical display and hit with an 8-1 drumming on home soil, Saturday’s hosts followed that up with another defensive disaster-class a fortnight ago. Hit with a 4-1 defeat against Torpedo BelAZ, once again in front of their own supporters, the Reds should be in for another tough task this weekend.
As for the visitors, while the mood in Energetyk-BGU’s camp might remain at an extended low, Neman Grodno find themselves in the midst of a glittering purple patch. Cruising towards their best Premier League finish in almost two decades, Igor Kovalevich’s men also sit in pole position to clinch a shock European finish this season. Putting in another professional display at picking up a deserved 1-0 win against Dinamo Minsk, the Yellow and Greens now find themselves on a remarkable unbeaten run that stems all the way back to May 9th, an 11-match run. Even more impressive, now going over 400 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net, Neman Grodno have collected 29 points on their glittering purple patch and will be looking to make another statement on Saturday afternoon. Landing a 3-0 romp when they faced off against Belyavskiy’s side earlier in the year, we’re backing a similar outcome.
