Lokomotiv Gomel vs FC Naftan Prediction & Match Preview

Lokomotiv Gomel vs FC Naftan
Belarus Pershaya Liga
Date: Saturday, 2 May 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Lokomotiv Stadium (Gomel)

These two are on two extremes in the points table. Lokomotiv Gomel is second in the table and is equal on points with toppers Krumkachy. The hosts have a good scoring record averaging 4 goals per game and have conceded a total of 2 goals. With an unbeaten run going on it will be hard to beat them especially in front of their home fans.

Naftan would have been in mid-table rather than at the bottom after 2 rounds. The federation’s decision to deduct 15 points has hit them hard. Their latest action in the league saw them draw to Lida at home. They are yet to win a game this season and will have to put on an extraordinary show to beat Gomel on Saturday.

Lokomotiv Gomel vs FC Naftan: Prediction

There is nothing separating these two in terms of head to head stats. But at the current condition, the visitors are under humongous pressure. Lokomotiv has easily got past teams like Gomel and Chimik in their opening matches. So I presume it will be a walk in the park for them in front of the home crowd.

The hosts are on a great scoring form at the moment. At the same time, the visitors are finding hard to get gaols even against teams like Gomel and Lida. Lokomotiv has scored 3 or more goals in both their matches so far. Half of their previous 10 matches at home also saw them repeat this scoring trend. So I am backing them to do it again at Lokomotiv Stadium this weekend.
