Sputnik vs Smorgon Prediction

Levchuk’s men had finished sixth in the table the last season, and had put in satisfactory performances throughout the campaign. They had scored 46 goals in the process, and let in 36 in return. 

On the other hand though, Geraschenko’s men ended up as the last safe team in the table, just above the relegation line. In the process, they had conceded 63 goals (from just 28 fixtures), and registered a goal difference of -36.

Moreover, the last Geraschenko’s men won on the road was back in August of 2019, and since September 2018, they have recorded a total of just three wins away from home. On the contrary, their counterparts are on a two-match winning run at home, and have lost just twice at this stadium in the past seven months.

Taking these observations into account, it’s expected that Sputnik will post the three points. However, note that not once have a home team delivered an h2h win, and at this venue Geraschenko’s men have a 100% winning record. They had also won the latest h2h clash 3-5. 

In light of these information, it’s concluded that goals will come from both teams this Saturday.
