Our prediction for this Other match:
After suffering a 5-3 loss to Slavia in their last warm-up game, Lokomotiv Gomel will be looking to give fans some cheer when they take on Khimik Svetlogorsk in the opening match of the season. Lokomotiv Gomel finished the last Belarusian First League campaign in the fourth position in the standings, and they are eager to secure a top-two finish this time out.
The hosts are seen as hot favourites to win Friday’s football match, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Khimik Svetlogorsk, are once again expected to sit in the bottom half of the table. Given the number of high-profile players in the home team, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in a competitive match Lokomotiv Gomel crushed Khimik Svetlogorsk 6-1, and the history is going to repeat itself.
