Smolevichy vs BATE Borisov Prediction

It has not been a walk in the park for FC Smolevichi as they once more try their luck in the big league after their 2018 season.

Aleksandr Brazevich will have worries in facing the second-placed squad in the 2019 campaign. Along with that, they are not that strong in their home matches.

Evidently, the host has recorded only 3 wins in the past 10 home matches across all major competitions.

BATE Borisov is unbeaten in the last five matches, following a 3-1 win at home against Neman in their previous encounter in the league.

It has to be noted that both their losses this season had come on the road. But both those losses were against the top tier teams and facing a promoted side will be a different story for Kirill Alshevsky’s boys.

Hence, with their previous experiences against Smolevichi in hand, the odds will favor the traveling side in the clash. As such, the best bet for the punters will be a -1 handicap for BATE to win.

Furthermore, the visitor is likely to score a couple of goals with their current form. So, over 1.5 team goals for BATE will also be a good probability in the game.
