Bate Borisov vs. Slavia Mozyr 7/11/20 Vysshaya League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction
2020-07-11 11:30:00 EDT
Bate Borisov is hosting Slavia Mozyr at Borisov Arena in round 17 in the Belarus Vysshaya League.
Bate Borisov has cooled off in their last two games in the Vysshaya League, and not only did they lost those two games, but they also haven’t even scored a goal. With these two losses, Bate has lost the first place in the standings to Shakhtyor, and Bate is now in second place with 30 points. In their latest Vysshaya League game against Energetik at home, Bate has had 56% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, and huge 16 corner kicks. I expected more from Bate, especially because Energetik’s defense is not that good, but Bate missed a penalty kick in 20th minute, and immediately after they conceded a goal. Bate Borisov has lost this match 0-1. Offensively, Bate is the best team in the Vysshaya League with 29 scored goals, but their defense has been really bad as of late, and Bate has conceded 17 goals this season. Ignatovich is Bate’s top goalscorer with 7 goals, while Dragun added 5 goals. There are no injuries in Bate Borisov at this time. The competition in the Vysshaya League this season is big, and even though Bate is the best team in Belarus, they will not win the title by playing this sloppy. This match is the perfect opportunity for Bate Borisov to get back on the winning track.
Slavia has had some good results as of late, and with that, Slavia has put some distance between them and the relegation zone. With 21 points, Slavia is now in 11th place, 6 points away from the relegation zone. Defensively, Slavia is the second-worse team in the Vysshaya League with big 28 conceded goals, while their offense is decent with 20 scored goals. Sliusar has scored 5 goals for Slavia this season, while Narh added 4 goals. In their latest Vysshaya League game against FK Slutsk at home, Slavia has had 49% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, and 4 corner kicks. Slavia has won this match 3-1. Slavia has been playing well as of late and they have 2 wins and 1 loss in their last 3 games, alongside 5 scored goals and 7 conceded goals. There are much worse teams in the Vysshaya League, and I think Slavia won’t have any trouble staying in the Vysshaya League next season as well.
When playing at home, Bate has not lost to Slavia in their last 7 games, and the trends are heavily on Bate’s side. Slavia has the away record of 3-0-5 this season. Bate has to get their game together, otherwise, they will lose another title, and I think they will start getting back to the top here. Bate is the better team in this matchup and I see them winning this match.
