Belshina vs Gorodeja Prediction & Betting tips
Two match days have already been played in the highest Belarusian football league and the long-time industry leader BATE Borisov is waiting for the very first point to be won. The multiple Champions League participant has lost both matches so far and therefore ranks third last in the classification.
The two clubs, which are ranked 15th and 16th, face off in a direct duel on Friday. Belshina Bobrujsk receives FK Gorodeya. According to the odds, the serious bookmakers in Germany find it difficult to name a favorite, as the teams have so far not spotted themselves with glory and, above all, have had little success on the chain.
While the home side scored a goal in the 3-1 win against FK Minsk on Matchday 1 and even led in phases, the guests from the 4,000-inhabitant town in the middle of the country are still waiting for their first sense of achievement. A 0: 1 at the start was followed by a 0: 2 bankruptcy, which is why the Greens are currently holding the red lantern.
Nevertheless, in the game Belshina Bobrujsk against FK Gorodeya we dare to predict the direction of the club, which was only founded in 2004. In view of the higher quotes, a bet on the away team appears much more lucrative, especially since it took a strong seventh place in the final classification last year.
The home side were still second-rate in 2019. The Belshina Bobrujsk against FK Gorodeya tip on the guest victory is therefore associated with plenty of value.
Did you know that Belshina Bobrujsk was one of the strongest football teams in Belarus less than 20 years ago? In 2001, the red and blacks were even able to crown the domestic league for the first and only time. The icing on the cake was the cup, which also went to Bjaresina at the beginning of the new millennium.
However, the club was no longer able to build on the glory days of the past. Again and again Belshina disappeared in the second class, so also in the past three seasons. It was not until 2019 that she returned to the upper house. So far, the climber does not seem to have really arrived yet. Two defeats on the first two match days underline this thesis.
Interestingly, if the matches had been whistled after 45 minutes, the Gradoboev team would be in the top third of the classification. For example, at the start against FK Minsk, Bobrujsk was 1-0 ahead before the break-in in the second section and the game was lost 1-3. Even in the first away game at Torpedo Zhodino, the red-blacks kept up well for a long time, but still conceded the decisive goal to 0: 1 in the 50th minute.
In order not to let the euphoria level off immediately after the ascent, it would be of enormous importance if the first three could finally be celebrated on the third matchday. If we believe the Belshina Bobrujsk against FK Gorodeya odds, then this scenario does not seem so unlikely. We lack the valid or at least statistical arguments to place a bet on the host.
In terms of quality, the squad is weaker in our eyes than that of the guests. Probably the most important man in midfield is the Russian Mikhail Bashilov, who stood on the pitch for the upcoming opponent Gorodeya last year, but did not score a single scorer point in 24 matches. In the attack, hopes rest on Leonid Kovel, who moved to Bjaresina from Minsk and marked the promoted team’s only goal of the season so far.
FK Gorodeya has had nothing to do with the issue of relegation in recent years. Between 2016 and 2018, ninth place jumped out. In the previous year it went up a little further. With an impressive record of twelve wins, eight draws and ten bankruptcies, the Greens took seventh place and, with just 29 goals, were one of the best defenses in the country.
In the current season, Coach Oleg Radushko’s team is still lagging behind the growing demands. After two game days, Gorodeya adorns the end of the table. Last year’s seventh did not score a single goal in 180 minutes. Accordingly, there were two bankruptcies against Vitebsk (0: 1) and Shakhtar Soligorsk (0: 2).
We believe that the guests have more potential and quality – also due to the experience gained in the first division and the extremely positive performances in the past few years – in order to achieve their first win in the third attempt.
It is also positive to mention that the club, which made its debut in the top division in Belarus in 2015 and was founded as a pure futsal club, was one of the best away teams in the Vysshaya League in 2019. After all, a third of all guest appearances (five out of 15) were designed victorious. In addition, the compactly defending surprise team convinced with a meager twelve goals.
If the Radushko team ties in with the performances from 2019, the value between Belshina Bobrujsk and FK Gorodeya should be hidden in the tip on the score of three.

In order to conclude with individual details, it is certainly worth looking at the Arkhipov brothers. The Russian twins are actually under contract in their home country of Tambov, but were loaned to Gorodeya. In particular Artem Arkhipov, who already laced his shoes for the Belarusians in 2019, was able to draw attention to himself with eight goals in just 13 games last year.
