Kick-off: 1400, 26/04/2020
Stadium: Torpedo Stadium
Torpedo Zhodino and Ruh Brest will aim to continue their great form when they face off at the Torpedo Stadium in Sunday afternoon.
Torpedo were top of the Vasshaya Liga ahead of matchday five before they were held by powerhouses BATE Borisov to a goalless draw.
Newcomers Ruh Brest have enjoyed a productive start to their maiden campaign in Belarus’ top flight, picking up seven points from a possible 15.
However, Zhodino have won both their home games so far and we expect them to come out on top again at 19/20 for our initial Torpedo vs Ruh Brest prediction.
A Look At Torpedo Zhodino’s Betting Odds
Torpedo have been solid at home in recent months and we expect this to continue when they face promoted Ruh Brest.
A 1-0 win over fellow newcomers Belshina was followed by a 2-0 success against Energetik, extending their fine home form of just two defeats in their last 12 league games.
One trend that has been consistent in Zhodino’s matches this season is the lack of action in the first half.
In both of their home wins, Torpedo were level at the break before going on to claim victory in the second period and this extends to four of their five matches during the 2020 campaign being all-square at half-time.
Brest have also been level at half-time in their last two league matches and we reckon it could happen once more.
It is 18/5 for the match to be level at the break before the home side takes all three points in the Torpedo vs Ruh Brest odds.
A Look At Ruh Brest’s Betting Odds
The Vysshaya Liga newbies have continued their rapid rise to the top flight with impressive displays to sit in ninth place in the table.
Ruh Brest were only formed as an amateur team in 2016 before joining the third division two years later.
Successive promotions followed and they marked their first top-tier match with a 1-0 win at Dinamo Minsk.
Two defeats followed but Ruh have got back on track with a goalless draw at Slavia Mozyr and 1-0 victory against FC Minsk to sit only three points behind leaders Torpedo.
All of their matches have been low-scoring affairs this season, with each of the five games involving two or less goals.
Zhodino’s five league games also follow this trend and it is 11/25 for under 2.5 total match goals which is our final Torpedo vs Ruh Brest prediction.
