Kick-off: 1500, 25/04/20
Stadium: Gorodeya Stadium
BATE Borisov head to a ground where they have never won in the Vysshaya Liga as they seek to return to winning ways.
The 15-time champions were held to a frustrating goalless draw at home to Torpedo last Saturday while Gorodeya are on a three-game winning streak.
Punters can get 29/10 for a draw and that is our opening Gorodeya vs BATE Borisov prediction.
A Look At Gorodeya’s Betting Odds
Gorodeya have performed on a consistent basis since securing top-flight football in 2015.
They came ninth in their maiden campaign in 2016 and as well in 2017, losing just four home games across the two seasons.
A third successive ninth-placed finish arrived in 2018 before they finally went one better last term, ending in seventh.
After beginning the new campaign with back-to-back defeats to Vitebsk and Shakhtyor Soligorsk, Gorodeya have reeled off three 1-0 wins over Belshina, Dinamo Minsk and Energetik.
Gorodeya are certainly a difficult side to break down, particularly at home with the 17 conceded last season the most since promotion to the top flight.
They have gone four successive games without conceding in the first half while BATE have had a clean sheet at the break in their previous three.
With that in mind, we like 31/20 for the opening half to be scoreless when looking at the Gorodeya vs BATE Borisov odds.
A Look At BATE Borisov’s Betting Odds
BATE were left to rue a missed first-half Pavel Nekhajchik penalty as their hopes of a third straight win was ended by a stalemate against Torpedo.
Kirill Alshevsky’s side had 58 per cent possession and 10 shots on target to the visitors’ three but could not find a way through, even when presented with a golden opportunity from 12 yards.
The point at least extended BATE’s unbeaten league run to three games having begun the season with surprising back-to-back defeats to Energetik and Slavia Mozyr.
However, BATE have not won at this venue in their previous four attempts and we expect them to be given another stern test.
BATE have particularly struggled in the second half this season, scoring just two of their six goals while they have only conceded twice after the break as well.
They have only won one second half in their five league games so far, with three of them being drawn.
That makes Draw HT/Draw FT at 4/1 a solid final Gorodeya vs BATE Borisov prediction.
