Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Vitebsk win
Odds: 15/11 @ 888sport
Glad to make a return to home soil this week and with the chance to potentially break into the top-half of the table, Vitebsk will welcome Isloch to the Vitebsky Central Sports Complex on Friday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Vitebsk were rightfully left frustrated to have left Dinamo Brest on the wrong end of a close-fought 1-0 defeat on their travels last week, the Blues have continued on quite the run of form on home soil this year. Although Sergey Yasinsky’s men might have seen their five-match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end at the Stadyen DASK Brestski, Vitebsk have landed back-to-back home wins and have collected 10 points over just their last four Premier League appearances in front of their own supporters. Even more impressive, unbeaten on home soil in any of their last seven home fixtures, they have also managed to snatch points off of both BATE and Neman Grodno. Now going over 400 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net at the Vitebsky Central Sports Complex, Friday’s hosts should be looking to extend on their recent purple patch.
As for the visitors, while Isloch might find themselves almost stuck in Premier League limbo, they will be boosted by picking up back-to-back victories for the first time since April. Picking up a dramatic 4-2 win against Slavia last weekend, there is no doubt that Head Coach Vitaly Zhukovsky will be desperate for his side to find some much-needed stability on their travels. Including a shock 3-1 defeat away at relegation scrappers Smolevichy-STI last month, Isloch had previously lost their last three top-flight matchups on their travels. While the guests might be enjoying an end of season bounce, the Whites do hold a worrying record away at the Vitebsky Central Sports Complex. Hit with a 3-2 defeat the last time they made the trip to Vitebsk, Zhukovsky’s men have lost each of their last three straight away meetings against Friday’s hosts.
Bet: Vitebsk 15/11 to beat Isloch on Friday’s Belarusian Premier League showdown @ 888sport
