4/3/20 10 am
Over 2.5 (+170), Under 2.5 (-225)
Belshina Bobruisk is hosting Gorodeya at Spartak Stadium in part of round 3 of Belarus Vysshaya League.
Belshina is in a bad form right now and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games, while they lost 4 straight games. In those 4 games, Belshina has scored only 2 goals, while conceding 7 goals. Two games into the new season, Belshina is still without a win and still without a single point, the only team worse than Belshina is Gorodeya, the team Belshina is playing against in this match. In their last Vysshaya League match against Torpedo on the road, Belshina had 44% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks. Belshina has lost this game 1-0. Overall, Belshina is just a weak team without depth and quality, and I don’t expect them to be any higher in the standings than they are right now. Kovel is the only goal scorer for Belshina at this time. There are no notable injuries in Belshina which mean the coach will have his best players at his disposal. Belshina is a newcomer to the Vysshaya League after they won the second division last season, but unless they find a way to win some points, I’m afraid Belshina will not stay in Belarus' top league for long.
Gorodeya is a much better team than Belshina, but they weren’t lucky at the beginning of a new season as well. Gorodeya has lost both of their games in the Vysshaya League this season and they conceded 3 goals, while not scoring a goal. Last season Gorodeya ended the competition in solid 7th place with 44 points. In their latest Vysshaya League match against Shakhtyor Soligorsk at home, Gorodeya had 45% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal and 1 corner kick. Overall, a really bad game for Gorodeya which they lost 0-2. There are no notable injuries in Gorodeya at the moment. Gorodeya isn’t a bad team, but they are still pretty far from one of the top three spots that lead to the European competitions. This game against Belshina is a game that Gorodeya must win because after that they are playing against Dinamo Minsk, one of the strongest teams in Belarus, and I don’t see them winning any points there. Of course, we are still in the early stages of the season, and Vysshaya League is the only league in Europe that is being played right now, although the pressure from players and coaches on the government and Belarus soccer association is huge and the season might get postponed soon.
Belshina and Gorodeya have played twice against each other with one game ending in a draw and the other one was won by Gorodeya. I think that Belshina is the favorite here because they are playing at home, but that advantage means nothing without the audience. Gorodeya is the better team here and I see them winning this match.
