5/3/20 11 am
Over 2.5 (+105), Under 2.5 (-134)
Bate Borisov is welcoming Neman Grodno to Borisov Arena in part of round 7 in the Belarus Vysshaya League.
Bate Borisov is finally consistent and on a roll. Bate hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games, while they won 3 for their last 4. Earlier this week Bate was playing in the Belarus Cup against Slavia Mozyr, a matchup that Bate was behind since they lost 1-0 in the first leg. Bate was a huge favorite here, and they justified that. They were the better team, constantly attacking, and in the end, Bate has won this match 2-0 and has advanced to the Belarus Cup finals. In the Vysshaya League, Bate has scored 5 goals in their last three-game and has conceded zero goals. With 10 points, 8 scored goals, and 5 conceded goals, Bate Borisov is now in 5th place in the standings, just 3 points away from the top. In their most recent match in the Vysshaya League against Gorodeya on the road, Bate was by far the better team with 74% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, and 6 corner kicks. With some of their best soccer this season, Bate Borisov has won this match 0-2. A few weeks ago, I mentioned that it’s only a matter of time before Bate Borisov goes on one of their famous streaks where they are playing fantastic soccer and are extremely hard to beat, that time has come. Soon, Bate Borisov will once again be at the top of the Vysshaya League.
Same as many teams in the Vysshaya League, Neman has been playing hot and cold this season. With only 1 win in their last 4 games, Neman is not playing in good form. With 8 points, 6 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals, Neman is in 10th place in the standings, and to be honest, they don’t have the quality to be any higher. In their most recent match in the Vysshaya League against Energetik at home, Neman had 55% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, and 7 corner kicks. It was one of the best games of the season for Neman, and they deservedly won this match 3-0. Being an average team in the Vysshaya League is not easy, because most of the teams are the same quality, with the exception of a few top teams, but Neman does have the quality to be in the top half of the standings, and I believe they will end the season somewhere between 6th and 9th place. The schedule for Neman is on a harder side in the next few weeks which means Neman will have to be at their best if they want to win some points.
When playing at home, Bate has not lost to Neman in their last 17 games and seeing that Bate Borisov is the better team here, and in the better form, I think Bate stays undefeated. The only question is how many goals they will score.
