Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Torpedo BelAZ win
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
With their sights firmly set on securing a European finish this season, a high-flying Torpedo BelAZ will travel to a downbeat Slutsk on Saturday lunchtime.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another sluggish display last weekend and hit with a 1-0 defeat away at Minsk, Slutsk have come crashing back down to earth after a remarkable start to the year. Freefalling away from the European spots and collecting just a single point out of a possible 12 over their past four Premier League appearances, Head Coach Vitaliy Pavlov will be most concerned by his side’s continued issues in front of goal. Drawing another blank last week, Slutsk have managed to land just a single strike in over 300 minutes of action. With just a sole win at the Stadyen Haradski in their last five attempts and hit with a 2-1 defeat the last time they hosted Saturday’s guests, Pavlov’s strugglers could be in for another long lunchtime time this week.
As for the visitors, while Slutsk might find the mood in their camp at a season-low, Torpedo BelAZ made a returning to winning ways last weekend and have continued on a stellar start to the new campaign. Knowing that three points on Saturday could see them break into the Europa League spots after just missing out on a top-three finish last season, the Whites once again impressed with a 2-1 win over Smolevichy-STI last time out. Appearing to bounce back from their shock defeat away at Neman Grodno last month, that is Torpedo BelAZ’s sole Premier League defeat in their last eight appearances, a run that stems back to April 3rd. With leading marksman Felipe Veloso bagging three goals in his last four outings, we’re backing what should be a golden chance for Yuri Puntus’ side to extend on their recent purple patch.
