Isloch vs. Vitebsk Belarusian Premier League

Vitebsk might be one of the bigger cities in Belarus, but its soccer team has not troubled the top of the table too much since the early 1990s and has never won the league title. A bright start this season has made people sit up and take notice, however.

This weekend, Vitebsk travels to the capital to take on Isloch in a game that could seriously derail any title aspirations that either side has this year. It may be early days, but the psychological blow of a defeat could have a dramatic effect

Isloch to Win+115
The Draw+211
Vitebsk to Win+267

BetOnline has Vitebsk as the underdog for this game, but it looks almost too close to call, with both sides pushing towards the top of the table in the early rounds. Isloch is the slight favorite, but I could well see a draw between these two rather than either side coming away with all three points.

Match Preview

Isloch started the season very impressively, recording back-to-back wins in the first two games. But they were against two of the weaker teams in the league, and it seemed as though the following losses to Slutsk and Dynamo Brest provided a clearer indication of how the Minsk club would do this year.

But the win over Slavia Mozyr last weekend has given fresh impetus to the campaign. Conceding a goal just after going 2-0 with just a quarter of an hour to play might have worried other teams, but Isloch maintained focus and hung on to grab another valuable three points.

That determination will need to be on show again this week as Vitebsk has also proved that it will not lie down and take losses this year. The three points from the game against title holders Dynamo Brest last weekend may have come fairly fortuitously, but Vitebsk still played to the end to get the win.

Isloch may not be quite as ill-disciplined this week and keep all eleven of its players on the field for the duration, so this game might be a little more even. The last two games have catapulted Vitebsk into second place, though, so the visitors here will want to keep hold of that lofty position.

  • The Draw
    +211

The draw looks the best value bet here, with both teams able to stop each other from putting the game out of sight. Vitebsk has relied heavily on its defensive strength so will probably go to Minsk with the idea of frustrating the hosts, whereas Isloch might see a draw as a relatively good result.
