Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
Once again turning our attention to the Belarusian Premier League this weekend, two of the top-flight strugglers will open Friday’s fixtures when Smolevichy-STI welcome Energetyk-BGU to the Ozyorny Stadium.
Starting with the hosts, hit with a 3-1 defeat at home against Dinamo Minsk last weekend, it is no surprise that Smolevichy-STI are seen to be one of the leading contenders to be hit with an immediate drop back down this season. Stil looking to pick up their first Premier League victory since opening the new campaign, Head Coach Aleksandr Brazevich has seen his side land just three points out of a possible 18. Still sat in the drop zone, there is no doubt that fans around the Ozyorny Stadium will be desperate for their side to make some rather drastic improvements on home soil. Including their defeat against Minsk last time out, Smolevichy-STI have managed to record just a single strike in front of their own supporters since making their top-flight return.
As for the visitors, despite opening the season with such promise and collecting nine points from their first three contests, Energetyk-BGU have come crashing back down to earth in rather dramatic fashion. Putting in what was a season-worst display and blown away thanks to a 3-0 hammering away at Neman Grodno last weekend, the Whites have now lost each of their last three top-flight matchups on the bounce and have continued to show some worrying issues in the final third. Drawing another blank last time out, Vladimir Belyavskiy’s side have failed to bag a single goal in over 300 minutes of action, their worst attacking record since April 2019. With each of the last seven meetings between the two sides seeing under 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing a similar outcome at the Ozyorny Stadium on Friday afternoon.
Bet: Under 2.5 goals at Smolevichy-STI vs Energetyk-BGU 3/5 for Friday’s Belarusian Premier League contest @ Bet 365
