Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet 365
Once again turning our attention to this weekend’s Belarusian Premier League fixtures, Torpedo Zhodino have the chance to briefly climb to the top of the table when they host Gorodeya on Friday evening in what should be a low-scoring contest.
Starting with the hosts, after finishing within touching distance of landing a European finish last season, Torpedo Zhodino have continued on what has been an eye-catching start to the new campaign. Opening the weekend sat just a single point adrift of climbing to the top of the table, the Whites have lost just one of their eight Premier League matchups this year and have quickly gained a reputation for their rugged displays at the back. Recording yet another clean sheet last time out thanks to a 0-0 draw against Slavia, their third stalemate in their last four appearances, Yuri Puntus’ side have now remarkably recorded six clean sheets already this season and hold the best defensive record in the division. It should also be noted that out of their eight top-flight matchups this year, all bar one of those contests has seen under 2.5 goals at full-time.
As for the visitors, while Gorodeya may have also found themselves in the European hunt last season, Oleg Radushko’s men have begun to show some signs of a struggle this time around. Playing out back-to-back 1-1 draws against Ruh Brest and FC Minsk since opening May, the Greens have failed to win any of their last three top-flight matches, their worst run of the season so far. While Gorodeya might be continuing to show some worrying inconsistencies on home soil, they have continued to shine on the road. Collecting seven points out of a possible nine away from the Gorodeya Stadium over the past month, they have also conceded just a sole goal in over 300 minutes of action on their travels. In a matchup that should see few chances at either ends of the pitch, we’re backing another low-scoring contest at the Stadyen Tarpeda on Friday evening.
