A very rare duel will take place on matchday 3 of Vysheyshaya Liha when FK Vitebsk takes on FK Smolevichi, who has been promoted again.
On April 5, 2020 at 3 p.m., this game will kick off at ZSK Vitebsk. The last time they met was in 2018.
Vitebsk won the home game and decided the away game in a draw.
You can find out more about both teams here on this page, because connoisseurs of the strongest Belarusian football league subjected them to a more detailed analysis.
In the betting tips and forecasts we will inform you about the most lucrative betting options and provide you with an experienced prediction about the game.
So you can get the best out of your betting tips.
FK Vitebsk only played 3 games in 2020.
They won 2 home games, 3-2 the friendly against Isloch Minsk and 1-0 the opening game of the current season against Gorodeya.
The away game they lost 0-2 against Neman Grodno. To get an impression of Vitebsk’s performance, we looked at the 2019 season, which ended them in 13th place in the table.
Last season they were the fifth weakest home team. In front of their home crowd, they won only 4 out of 15 games and were able to make 5 draws.
They accepted 6 losses.
They only graduated 15 times, whereas they had to allow 17 points. Away, only 4 wins and only 2 draws were possible.
They surrendered 9 times. 9:22 is the away goal balance. They were the second weakest team in 2019 after scoring goals.
Nevertheless, they have been coached by Sergey Yasinski since December 1st, 2015. The 55-year-old Belarusian has an average success rate as a trainer of 1.40 PPS. Yasinski has never lost to Aleksandr Brazevich, the coach of Smolevichi, but has won 1 of 2 games as coach and caused 1 draw. Likewise, as a coach, he has never been defeated by FK Smolevichi. He won 2 of 3 games and 1 game ended in a tie.
Good conditions for the upcoming game, because they have won the only home game against Smoelvichi with 4: 0 and once they have won 1: 1 and won 0: 1.
These games took place between July 8th, 2016 and August 31st, 2018.
Their first season after being promoted back to the strongest Belarusian football league has so far not been entirely as desired, because they have not yet won a single game.
The opening game against Dynamo Brest, the Belarusian champion 2019, ended with a 1-1 away. This achievement should actually be appreciated. They lost the second game away to Isloch Minsk.
Not a harmless opponent either. In 2019 they were in the Pershaja Liha, the second-strongest football league in Belarus.
They presented themselves in an extremely dominant way abroad.
They won 10 out of 14 away games and lost only 1. 3 draws were also scored. They concluded 31 times that there are more than 2 goals per game and only allowed 5 points.
They were similarly convincing against a home backdrop. Because 9 wins and 4 draws were possible.
They surrendered only once. The goal balance in front of a home crowd was: 29:10.
Since December 18, 2017, they have been trained by the 46-year-old Belarusian Aleksandr Brazevich, who has an average success rate as a trainer of 1.11 PPS.
He has never won against Yasinski, as we mentioned earlier. Against Vitebsk, he was only able to win 1 of 4 games as coach and caused 1 draw.
He had to admit defeat twice. The away performance of Smolevichi certainly suggests a win, because Vitebsk is rather weak against a home backdrop.

Football Prediction of the Day FK Vitebsk vs Smolevichi
The bookmakers offer very similar odds for Tip 1 and Tip 2.
As a winning bet, we would give preference to an outsider bet and recommend a tip 2 to you.
However, we would advise a double chance tip X / 2, whereby the odds are no longer particularly lucrative, but still usable.
For over / under bets, we are more likely to be placed over 2.5 goals, but we are not a ‘match with the betting providers.
We would say yes to both teams, even if the bookmakers do not share this opinion with us.
