Pick: Vitebsk to Win
REASON FOR THIS PREDICTION
- Vitebsk have a 100% record at home so far this season.
- Vitebsk won each of their first two home games 1-0.
- Slavia were beaten in 100% of their last three matches in all competitions.
- Vitebsk kept a clean sheet in 50% of their six league games this term.
Vitebsk looking to build on early form
Having finished just one place clear of the drop zone last season, Vitebsk’s positive start to the 2020 campaign has raised more than a few eyebrows, though another win this weekend could push them close to the top of the Belarus Premier League standings.
In what has been an unpredictable opening to the season in general, Vitebsk’s haul of 10 points from six games has been enough to keep them among the early front runners in 5th place, and they largely have their home form to thank for their ascent.
Vitebsk formidable at home
Vitebsk have won three fixtures overall so far this term, and two of those victories were secured at their home, the Stadyen Central’ny Vitsyebski.
It’s also worth noting that Vitebsk have played just twice on their own patch since the new season kicked-off, which in turn gives them a small, but impressive 100% wining start there.
Vitebsk will be keen to prolong their sequence of home victories for as long as possible, and they have a good chance of doing just that on Sunday against a Slavia outfit that look a little fragile following three defeats on the trot.
Mozyr had come out of the blocks quickly earlier this season, winning two of their first three Premier League matches before a draw with Rhur Brest kicked off a sequence of three games without a win.
Back-to-back losses against Isloch and Minsk were compounded by their Cup semi final second leg reverse at BATE, and having been denied a place in the competition’s final, Slavia’s confidence should be at a low ebb this weekend.
A home win likely
That opens the door for Vitebsk to keep the good results coming on home turf, and having eked out narrow wins in each of the two Premier League matches they’ve contests at the Stadyen Central’ny Vitsyebski so far this season, we’re backing them to complete a hattrick of early wins at Slavia’s expense.
The evidence suggests that goals should be thin on the ground again however. Both of Vitebsk’s previous home wins this season were secured with narrow 1-0 scorelines, and having already kept clean sheets in 50% of their six league matches since March, 1-0 looks a correct score prediction worth considering again.
