Oshmyany vs Sputnik FC
Belarus Pershaya Liga
Date: Saturday, 25 April 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: FOK Stadium (Oshmyany)
This is the first season for Oshmyany in the First Division. They did exceptional in the third tier finishing second in the table. In their season-opener, they picked up three points against Arsenal Dzyarzhynsk away from home. They dominated possession and kept a clean sheet with a final score of 0-3. With that dominant performance, they have placed themselves as favorites in this year’s competition.
Sputnik had to settle for a point at home against Smorgon on matchday one. Since a win against Baranovici back in September, they have not won away from home. Also, they have a 6 match winless run across all venues. Considering their upcoming opposition they will be concerned with this first match away from home.
Oshmyany vs Sputnik FC: Head-to-head (h2h)
- This is the first competitive fixture between these two teams.
Oshmyany vs Sputnik FC: Prediction
The win against familiar rivals Arsenal would have given the hosts the necessary boost in morale. But whenever they met First division teams I Cup competitions the result was not in their favor. Two of those recent games were against Chimik Svetlogorsk who finished 11th in the league last season.
Sputnik finished 6th in the previous season but have an away record filled with defeats. They have a 5 match winless run going on with 3 defeats included. It is hard to predict a clear winner with the stats we have at hand.
In 7 of the last 12 away matches that Sputnik played, the score was over 2.5 goals. This same trend can be seen in the last home matches of Oshmyany. This includes both cup and league games.
So I am backing a final score with over 2.5 goals and both teams getting goals.
