Smolevichy vs Belshina Prediction
Smolevichy has one win more than the visitors in the overall league table, even though they are one game behind the latter in the schedule. They were close competitors in the second division last season.
The host will rely on their h2h history in making something out of this game, and also their current form is slightly better when compared to their fellow-promoted side at the ultimate bottom of the table.
Aleksey Mikhaylov’s men don’t make a firm case for a home win, but the benefit of doubts points to the home team with a probable scoreline of a 1-1 draw or 2-1 win for Smolevichy.
The best bet for the punters will be a double chance favoring the host. Besides, their scoring average is low and the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be a suitable option from the goals area.
