Vitebsk had a nice run where they were undefeated for three games in a row a little while ago, but that form is gone, and Vitebsk has lost their 2 last games. Vitebsk is in 9th place in the standings with 10 points, 6 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals. Defensively solid, but Vitebsk’s offense needs some work if they want to stay carefree for the rest of the season and avoid the relegation zone. In their last match is the Vysshaya League against Slavia Mozyr at home, Vitebsk was the better team with 52% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, and 3 corner kicks. This was a fun game with a lot of goals and good chances. Vitebsk was losing 0-1 at half time, but 20 minutes in the second half, Vitebsk was able to turn things around and get ahead. Just when we thought Vitebsk will take the three points here, Slavia has scored two goals in 2 minutes and Vitebsk has lost this match 2-3. I’m sure this defeat has shaken Vitebsk, and now they are facing the team that is playing good soccer as of late. It will be a tough match for Vitebsk, a match where they must forget what happened last week if Vitebsk wants to stand a chance.
Shakhtyor is playing their best soccer of the season as of late, and they scored 10 goals in their last three games. Comparing this period to the beginning of the season, Shakhtyor has improved a lot. Last week Shakhtyor was playing in the Belarus Cup and has won that match 4-2, but unfortunately for Shakhtyor, it wasn’t enough to advance to the finals. In their most recent match in the Vysshaya League against Isloch last weekend at home, Shakhtyor has had 45% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, and 5 corner kicks. Shakhtyor was incredibly effective in this match and has won the game 4-0. With 11 points, 9 scored goals, and only 3 conceded goals, Shakhtyor is in 6th place and is slowly advancing and getting closer to the top, where they belong. Defensively, Shakhtyor has been outstanding this season, and if only their offense was better at the start of the season, Shakhtyor would be at the top of the Vysshaya League right now. The schedule for Shakhtyor is really good over the next few weeks where they are playing against the teams that are in, or close to the relegation zone.
Shakhtyor is the better team here and the trends are on their side. Shakhtyor’s away record this season is 2-1-0 and they are the favorites in this game against Vitebsk. I’m not stepping in front of this Shakhtyor train and I see them getting away with a win here. Click Here To Bet On Game
