• Both teams have scored in four of Slutsk’s last six matches.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Torpedo’s last six matches.
  • Torpedo have won three of their last five league games and both teams have scored on each occasion.

Slutsk went down 1-0 away bottom half of the table Minsk last time out and have now lost three of their last four in the Premier League. Torpedo had the home advantage against relegation battlers Smolevichy and secured all 3pts courtesy of a 2-1 win, moving the third-placed club onto 21pts for the campaign.

Torpedo have had the beating of Slutsk over the last couple of years, picking up four wins, one draw, and suffering one defeat from the pairs’ last six encounters. Both teams scored when Slutsk last played host to Torpedo and four of each clubs last six league outings have seen both teams score, so you can see why we have predicted goals in this game at both ends of the pitch.

Torpedo head into Saturday’s clash as the form favourites with three wins, two draws, and just one defeat from their last six outings, while Slutsk have failed to win any of their last four games and have dropped down to fifth place in the process. 83% of the hosts’ home games have seen both teams score and 50% of the hosts’ home games have produced over 2.5 goals, which ties in perfectly with our prediction for a 2-1 Torpedo win this weekend.

The visitors don’t score a lot of goals but they let in even fewer with just nine goals conceded in their opening 11 matches. Slutsk are yet to keep a clean sheet at home this season but have only failed to score in 17% of those matches, another reason to back both teams to score on Saturday.
