Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365

Once again turning our attention to the midweek Belarusian Premier League fixtures, a high-flying Zhodino will be hoping to extend on their eye-catching run of form when they travel to Neman Grodno on Thursday evening.

Starting with the hosts, despite appearing to enjoy what was a stable start to the new campaign, the wheels are quickly starting to come off for Neman Grodno. Putting in yet another torrid display over the weekend and hit with a 4-2 hammering at home against Premier League debutants Ruh Brest, Igor Kovalevich’s side have drastically struggled to capitalize on their 3-0 victory against Energetyk-BGU last month. Now with many around the Stadion Neman starting to fear that their side are being dragged into a relegation scrap, Grodno have lost three of their last four Premier League outings, a run that was also highlighted by a 3-1 hammering against league leaders BATE earlier in the month. Enduring a real sluggish patch at the back, Thursday’s hosts could be in for another tricky evening’s work in midweek.

As for the visitors, while the mood in Neman Grodno’s camp might be at a low, Zhodino have their sights set on landing a European spot this time around. Putting in another eye-catching display last weekend and grabbing a deserved 3-1 win at home against Gorodeya, the Whites open the midweek fixtures sat just a single point adrift of BATE and in the midst of a stunning six-match unbeaten run. With that run also highlighted by what was a stunning 5-2 romp against FC Minsk last month, there is no doubt that Head Coach Yuri Puntus will be hugely impressed by his side’s recent displays at the back. Recording four clean sheets in their previous six Premier League outings, Thursday’s guests have also lost just one of their last six top-flight matchups away from the Stadyen Tarpeda. Unbeaten in their last four matchups against the midweek hosts, Zhodino should be confident of extending on their recent purple patch.
