In the next match of the 16th round of the Belarusian championship, Gomel and Arsenal from Dzerzhinsk will come face to face. Will the guests be able to extend the winning streak?
In the first round, Gomel performed well, but in the end it still began to stumble often, as a result of which it lagged a little behind the European Cup zone. However, the second half of the championship is still ahead, so the mistakes made earlier can and should be corrected. On the eve of the sixteenth round, Gomel has 22 points and is on the eighth line, six points behind the European Cup zone. In the two previous rounds, Gomel scored one point, playing 0-0 with Energetik-BSU and losing 0-3 to Minsk.
But Arsenal managed to improve the standings before going on hiatus, leaving the relegation zone. It happened thanks to two victorias in a row. First, the club from Dzerzhinsk beat Dnipro from Mogilev (1-0), and then won a sensational victory, coping with the score 2-1 with BATE. At the moment, Arsenal has thirteen points on its account, with which it is located in the thirteenth position, two points from the play-off zone.
Statistics and figures:
- "Gomel" two rounds without wins;
- Arsenal won in the previous two rounds;
- In the first round, Gomel won 2-1 against Arsenal.
Gomel narrowly won against Arsenal in the first round match, and the upcoming match will certainly be very difficult. It's hard to say whether the guests will be able to create another surprise, but they have become effective in attack, so it makes sense to bet that they will score at least once.
