FC Naftan vs FC Slonim
Belarus- First League
Date: Sunday, 10 May 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Atlant Stadium (Novopolotsk)
Even though the host is at the bottom of the table, they are the favorites to win this one. Naftan has drawn all their games this season both home and away. They would have been in the top ten if the federation changed their decision to reduce points. This has affected the team’s morale and the team is failing to keep clean sheets. This resulted in them losing much need points by conceding goals in crucial points of the game.
Slonim is in a much better spot compared to the upcoming opposition. They are 7th with a win, loss and draw each in their 3 games so far. The recent match against Lida away from home ended as a disappointing loss, their first of the season. They too have defensive problems like Naftan and the team with better defense will have the upper hand on Sunday.
FC Naftan vs FC Slonim: Head-to-head (h2h)

FC Naftan vs FC Slonim: Prediction
This one will be interesting considering the positions both these sides are in. Naftan has a great squad and they have an unbeaten streak going on at home. Meanwhile, the visitors are coming from a disappointing defeat against a team like Lida. They have not won in 17 consecutive matches which makes them the underdogs in this matchup.
Slonim is a bad attacking team as they have scored under a goal per game this season. If they wish to stay at the top half of the table they must convert the few chances they get in a match. Despite being at the relegation zone Naftan has score 4 goals and will be dangerous at home. So I am backing the hosts to win and only one team to score.
