Saturdays Football Bet of the Day sees me return to Ireland after first taking my first trip to Belarus where two home sides should fine the back of the net.
BATE vs Slavia
🇧🇾 Vysheyshaya Liga
⏰ Saturday 29th May, 15:00
2nd placed BATE host 12th placed Slavia on Saturday afternoon at the Borisov Arena. BATE need the points to put a bit of pressure on Shakhytor whereas Slavia only sit two points above the relegation play off spot.
BATE may be 7 points behind Shakhytor but their home form has been perfect so far. They’ve won all 6 of their home games this season and have scored 14 goals. They also come into this in decent form winning 5 of their last 6 games scoring 12 goals.
Slavia come into this off the back of a 2-4 defeat at home to Gomel. That now means they’ve lost 6 of their games and collected only 8 points in their 10 games and 7 of those points were won against sides below them. Other than a win against bottom of the table Sputnik, Slavia have lost their other three away games including a 4-1 defeat against the side BATE are trying to catch, Shakhytor.
Bohemians vs Waterford
🇮🇪 Premier Division
⏰ Saturday 29th May, 16:00
6th placed Bohemians host bottom side Waterford at Dalymount Park on Saturday afternoon. Bohemians have a bit of catching up to do to qualify for the Conference League as they sit 8 points behind 3rd place St Patrick’s whereas it already looks like the best Waterford can hope for is 9th and finishing in the relegation play off spot.
Bohemians come into this in their best form this season winning 3 of their last 4 games scoring 12 goals. They’ve won their last 2 home games against Dundalk and Finn Harps scoring 9 goals. Bohemians have only failed to score twice in their 13 games this season and are the joint second highest scorers with 20.
Waterford have had a disappointing season so far sitting bottom of the table and have lost 10 of their 12 games they played (Sligo got awarded a 3-0 win due to COVID). Waterford have lost their last 5 games on the bounce conceding 16 goals. Waterford have only kept one clean sheet this season and that came against the side 1 point and 1 place above them Longford and that was at home.
Bet of the Day
Saturdays double consists of 2 teams at home who should find a couple of goals. First up BATE should keep up their 100% home record and score at least a couple of goals against a struggling Slavia. Then Bohemians should be able to score at least a couple of goals at home to bottom of the table Waterford.
- BATE to win & over 1.5 goals
- Bohemians to score over 1.5 goals
