Sports Betting Sees Draw In Isloch vs. Vitebsk Clash
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Isloch hosts Vitebsk on Saturday in round 6 of the Belarus Vysshaya League. Vitebsk has shown it can handle Isloch on the road but sports betting sees a tight contest. Isloch’s offense has been phenomenal, something Vitebsk will try to overcome with their defense. This will be a close match and the best outcome is seeing a draw.
Isloch Needs More Consistency
Isloch is lording it over the standings but has been showing inconsistent form. They cannot afford that against a defensive-minded Vitebsk. In its last five games, Isloch has conceded 7 goals and at least scored one in each match. In their last assignment, Isloch had a superb performance against Slavia Mozyr at home. They handled the ball better with 6 shots to the goal and 7 corner kicks. That match was close in the first half but Isloch buckled down to work in the second half. They scored 2 goals in 10 minutes, something that allowed them to take a 2-0 lead. Slavia was able to get its first goal with under four minutes but Isloch held on. This is a scenario that Isloch may not want to do against Vitebsk.
One thing working for Vitebsk is that they are riding on a three-game roll. In those games, they have scored 3 goals and gave up only one. That along speaks highly on how well their defense has been working for them this season. Overall, Vitebsk has been solid this season. They are in third place with 10 points, tied with Torpedo. Only Slutsk is ahead of them both. Aside from that, there is a reason for Isloch to be wary. Vitebsk has lost only once this season, dropping their match against Neman in the second round. In their last outing, they hosted and defeated Dynamo Brest. They had 45 percent of the ball possession, had 5 shots on goal, and 6 corner kicks. That was a game that could have ended in a draw had Dynamo not incurred 2 red cards.
Regardless, Vitebsk handled it well and made the right adjustments to win the match 1-0. Worth noting though that Vitebsk’s last four opponents were some of the worst teams in the Vysshaya League. But their campaign has been holding up because of their superb defense. This is expected to be in full display against Isloch. But defense is nothing if they do not deliver on the offensive end. Vitebsk needs to create more scoring opportunities since they are not getting enough chances.
Sports Betting Forecasts Draw
With offense meeting defense, it all boils down to who between Isloch and Vitebsk can perform well on both ends. Both have their deficiencies. Isloch’s defense is suspect while Vitebsk’s offense needs work. Pundits are almost sure that this one will end with a draw. A +140 is given over 2.5 while a -188 is out for under 2.5. Either way, expect an exciting match when Isloch hosts Vitebsk this Saturday at the Belarus Vysshaya League. It will be action-packed and this sports betting worth following.
