Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino vs. Gorodeya Betting Preview – Belarusian Premier League, May 15

| May 13, 2020 12:59 am PDT
Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino vs. Gorodeya Belarusian Premier League

Both these clubs finished just outside the European places last season but would have been well pleased with that result considering the size of the teams that did finish in the top four.

It was always going to be difficult for either side to improve further, but it has definitely been Torpedo that has looked the better side this year. A home win will be expected here.

Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino vs. Gorodeya Odds

Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino to Win-142
The Draw+236
Gorodeya to Win+469

BetOnline has definitely taken into consideration the different form of these two from last season into this campaign. Torpedo is the clear favorite to win on Friday, and the bookmaker gives the visitors little chance of causing an upset. Gorodeya’s strong defense might make the draw look interesting, though.

Match Preview

Just one defeat for Torpedo this season has kept its interest at the top of the table alive, although three draws in the last four games has allowed the likes of BATE and Slutsk to increase the gap at the summit. Goals have been scarce in that time, too, and that will be a worry for the hosts here.

There hasn’t actually been a glut of goals from Torpedo at any stage of the season so far. But at least at the start of the campaign, there were some victories to celebrate. Zhodino needs to get back to those winning ways before there is too much to do to even entertain the idea of European soccer next year.

Gorodeya only came up to the Belarusian Premier League in 2015 and has been steadily improving since then to become a regular fixture of the division. A comfortable mid-table finish is probably the extent of the aspirations at the club, so a slight improvement is needed if that is to be achieved this year.

After some good wins, the loss to BATE was predictable, but the two draws with Rukh Brest and FC Minsk in the following weeks seem like opportunities missed for Gorodeya. The results are not terrible, looking at the way the season has gone so far in Belarus, but they have drawn the club nearer to the bottom of the league, rather than the top.

Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino vs. Gorodeya Pick

  • Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino to Win

Torpedo is odds on to win this one, and there should be enough talent in the squad to pick up three points that could put some real pressure on some of the clubs just above it in the league. If other results go its way at the weekend, Torpedo could even break into the top two at the end of this round of fixtures.
