In this Isloch vs. Slavia Mozyr betting preview, I provide you with the odds, a game preview, and my pick.
Isloch has started the season off positively but will have been hoping for more after the way last year finished. A cup semifinal and its best-ever performance in the top flight promised much for 2020.
This weekend, Isloch welcomes Slavia Mozyr to the FC Minsk Stadium as it attempts to put one over a more established club that has not enjoyed the best of times in recent years.
Isloch vs. Slavia Mozyr Odds
Isloch to Win+109
Slavia Mozyr to Win+272
BetOnline has this game looking very close, and that is fairly understandable given the way the season has begun for both clubs. The draw might be the more tempting price, but Slavia Mozyr is currently third in the Premier League and on a four-game unbeaten run in all competitions.
Isloch is definitely the young pretender when it comes to these two clubs and did manage to beat Slavia Mozyr in this fixture last season. A lot has happened since then, though, and back-to-back defeats have derailed the good start to the season the Minsk club had enjoyed.
It has still been able to score goals, though. So if Isloch can find a way through a Slavia Mozyr defense that has already been breached five times in four games, then we could have a game on our hands.
But the home side will need to be defensively sound itself as Nikita Melnikov has already scored two for Slavia this season, and there have been others that have chipped in with their own contributions, too. After last season’s eighth-place finish in its first season back in the top flight, Slavia Mozyr looks like becoming more of a force this year.
There are some relatively easy fixtures coming up after this one for the visitors. So if a positive result can be achieved here, then we might expect Slavia Mozyr to make a concerted effort for honors this year.
Isloch vs. Slavia Mozyr Prediction and Pick
Slavia Mozyr to Win
Slavia Mozyr has started the season really impressively — aside from the defeat to Slutsk on the opening day — and is probably the form team in the whole of the Belarusian Premier League at the moment. Isloch has started to go the other way, and if the visitors can get an early goal, I think they will go on to win this game.
