A single point separates the top five clubs in the Belarusian Premier Leauge and Torpedo BelAZ is fortunate that their defensive side has made up for their lack of overall goals. While they have only won once in their last four matches, they’ve only given up two goals to scoring five for themselves – although each was in the same match.

Against the top clubs this season, Torpedo BelAZ has shown that they have the organization to hold off disciplined attacking sides. Save for one slip up against Dinamo Minsk, Torpedo BelAZ managed aptly against mid-to-lower table sides.

After scoring five goals against Minsk, Torpedo BelAZ will look to have the same attacking success against Gorodeya. Torpedo BelAZ should be liberal going forward, as Gorodeya has shown little in the attacking half on the counter or in possession.

Gorodeya have been mainstays in the Vysheyshaya Liga for the last five seasons, owing to their positive attitude and organized defensive nature. After eight matches they’ve accumulated only 11 points in the league, with only three wins to their name.

Oleg Radushko fields impressive defensive tactics with the players he is given, however, they are the lowest scoring side in the league so far this season. To say that this will be a low-scoring affair wouldn’t be far-fetched.

Without a win in their last three matches, Gorodeya has some ground to gain in the league table. They’ve shown some counterattacking ability, although it is nowhere near consistent enough to call it a viable threat. Once again they’ll have to rely on their backline to defeat a capable attacking side.

What’s at Stake

  • Over the course of 16 matches against each other since 2005, Torpedo BelAZ and Gorodeya are tied with six wins each and four draws between them. Torpedo BelAZ has the edge in goals though, 28 to 21.
  • A win for Torpedo BelAZ would send them as far as the top of the league table with 18 points.
  • A win for Gorodeya would send them as high as sixth in the league table with 14 points.

Players to Watch

Torpedo BelAZ – #33 (CF) Valeri Gorbachik

Odds taken from DraftKings Sportsbook

Valeri Gorbachik – Player Props vs Gorodeya
Player to Score+155
Player to Score Multiple Goals+950

Valeri Gorbachik has been a bright spot for Torpedo BelAZ so far this season. His finishing ability was on full display in his hattrick effort against Minsk during Gameweek 7. He’s shown maturity with defenders surrounding him as well as on the break. His celebrations are quite something as well!

Gorodeya are a much more conservative attacking team, so Torpedo BelAZ will have to show their quality in possession. With Gorbachik’s finishing ability, their success as a team will be based around their ability to service him.

Torpedo BelAZ is the lowest scoring club of the top six in the Premier League. With such a tight race at the top of the table, Yuri Puntus will look to Gorbachik to bring lessen the goal difference at the top.

Gorodeya – #1 (GK) Igor Dovgyallo

Odds taken from DraftKings Sportsbook

Igor Dovgyallo – Game Props vs Torpedo BelAZOdds
Correct Score (0-0)+575
Correct Score (2-0 Torpedo BelAZ)+575

Veteran goalkeeper Igor Dovgyallo is the overlooked man during the limited success of Gorodeya. While Gorodeya have only three wins on the season, Dovgyallo has been the man to save his side on multiple occasions.

For a team that tends to sit back rather than actively attack, Dovgyallo’s communication with his backline has been essential to them having one of the leagues’ best goals allowed record.

Torpedo BelAZ scored an incredible five goals in their match against Minsk, a team that is similarly ranked to Gorodeya in the league table. The sportsbook has the odds for a 0-0 draw equal to the odds for a 2-0 loss for Gorodeya. Dovgyallo is the difference-maker for Gorodeya to take some points for this match.
