Naftan vs Lida Prediction & Match Preview

FC Naftan vs FC Lida
Belarus Pershaya Liga
Date: Saturday, 25 April 2020
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Atlant Stadium (Novopolotsk)

Last year both sides finished mid-table and they are already in trouble after the first round. Both of them have suffered after the federation decided to decrease points.

Naftan was affected the most because of that as they are on -14 points after the first match. They drew the league opener against Gomel away from home. Both teams were not at their best as the game ended as a goalless draw.

Lida lost against Orsha after taking a 0-1 lead in the 26th minute. They were left hopeless as the hosts came back in the second half to win the match 3-2. In their second consecutive away game, they would want to carry that scoring form with them. They are currently 11th with -3 points and a win could get them out of trouble for now.

FC Naftan vs FC Lida: Prediction

Naftan has a great home record in recent times. They have a six-match unbeaten run in the league games that were played here. But the away form of the visitors is just the opposite as they have not won any of the last 7 trips.

But even in losing run, they have managed to get goals in 5 away games on the trot. I am sure they could get goals here but given the home record of Naftan, that might not be enough. So I am backing the hosts to win with both the sides netting goals.
