Our prediction for this Belarus Premier League match:
Friday’s football game at Stadyen Tarpeda pits together Torpedo BelAZ and Smolevichy-STI, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020 season. Despite suffering a 3-1 loss to Neman Grodno at the weekend, Torpedo remained in top three in the standings. Smolevichy-STI, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only four points from possible 27 to date.
The relegation strugglers are on a nine-game winless run in the national championship, and even though they managed to hold Ruh Brest to a draw at the weekend, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Torpedo’s party at Stadyen Tarpeda. Unlike other European leagues, spectators are allowed to pack stadiums in Belarus, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the top-table side this time out.
