Vitebsk vs Gorodeya Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Vitebsk host Gorodeya at ZSK Vitebsk Stadium in the first round of the 2020 Belarusian Premier League. Vitebsk found it hard to score last season and have done little to address that issue, Gorodeya have form on their side and a striker to help take all three points.

Vitebsk Form


Vitebsk narrowly survived relegation last season after losing their final four matches. They have played seven preseason friendlies and recorded just one win, a 2-1 victory against Belshina.

Goals were hard to come by last season with 24 scored in 30 matches. Midfielder Anton Matveenko top scored with four goals to highlight their struggles in front of goal.

Vitebsk News


Vitebsk brought in two Brazilians in the winter transfer window with centre back Julio Cesar and defensive midfielder Wanderson joining the club. Midfielder Maksym Kalenchuk also arrived from Rukh Lviv to boost the central midfield.

21-year-old Moldova striker Ion Nicolaescu has been added on loan to try and improve their attack.

Gorodeya Form


Gorodeya finished seventh in the Belarusian Premier League last season and largely kept their squad intact. 

They have shown some improvement in preseason by winning four of their last five games. A 4-1 win against Naftan was followed by a 2-1 victory over Neman Grodno.

Oleg Radushko’s side were defensively solid to end the 2019 Belarus Premier
League, keeping three clean sheets in their last four away matches and going undefeated in nine of their last 11 away matches in the competition.

Gorodeya News


Gorodeya have improved their squad in the winter transfer window, adding goalkeeper Gleb Efimov alongside midfielders Denis Yaskovich and Mikhail Shibun.

Last season’s top scorer Artem Arkhipov remain on loan from Tambov and could be a sharp improver. The 23-year-old Russian scored eight goals in 13 appearances and could form a deadly strik partnership with twin brother Sergey Arkhipov who was signed on loan in January.

Gorodeya have a narrow 6-4 advantage over Vitebsk with five draws in 15 encounters. Gorodeya won the last encounter 2-0 in Vitebsk through a Dmitri Gushchenko own goal and Artem Arkhipov strike.
