Competition: Belarus Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet 365
Once again turning our attention to the Belarusian League games this weekend, Torpedo Zhodino has a chance to rise to the top of the table briefly when he receives Gorodeya on Friday night, in a contest that must be low punctuation.
Starting with the hosts, after finishing just a short distance from a European final last season, Torpedo Zhodino continued what was an attractive start to the new campaign. At the weekend's opening, just one point behind the leader, the Whites lost just one of their eight Premier League games this year and quickly gained a reputation for their rough displays in the back. With another goal scored in the last match, thanks to the 0-0 draw against Slavia, his third draw in the last four matches, Yuri Puntus's team has recorded remarkably six goals this season and holds the division's best defensive record. It should also be noted that, of the eight games played in the first division of this year, all, except for one of these competitions, had less than 2.5 goals in full time.
As for the visitors, while Gorodeya may also have met on the European hunt last season, Oleg Radushko's men started showing some signs of struggle this time around. Playing 1-1 draws against Ruh Brest and FC Minsk since the opening of May, the Greens have failed to win any of the last three games in the first division, the worst leg of the season so far. Although Gorodeya may continue to show some troubling inconsistencies at home, they continue to shine on the road. With seven points out of nine possible out of Gorodeya Stadium last month, they also conceded just one goal in more than 300 minutes of action on their travels. In a match that should have little chance on either side of the field, we are supporting another low-scoring contest at Stadyen Tarpeda on Friday night.
