After four games we know a little more about the qualities of Gomel and Volna in this fresh Pershaya Liga season. Read our match preview!

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

9-8-12 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Volna when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 29 matches are 24-45 (scored/conceded).

Gomel form and stats

Two Pershaya Liga home games so far for Gomel, who are yet to win here at Stadyen Central'ny Vitsyebski. Only 1 point so far.

A strong away win for Gomel against Sputnik the last match, as I. Zhestkin, N. Ivanov, R. Yudenkov and D. Gomza were on target. 1-1 away at Krumkachy before that.

As mentioned above, Gomel "killed" Sputnik in their previous game. They need to reset completely for this one and beware of complacency.

Gomel has scored 2 goals so far and conceded 3 goals from 2 home games. These are numbers from the league only.

Volna form and stats

Volna are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the Pershaya Liga, having played 2 games and collected 3 points (1 win, 0 draws and 1 loss).

Impressive finishing from M. Grechikha and D. Gradoboev secured the home win 4-2 against Khimik Svetlogorsk in their previous game. Prior to that result Volna won their away game at Granit. The scoreline was 1-0.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Khimik Svetlogorsk was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today?

1 goal so far away for Volna, while their defence has allowed the opposition to score 2. All from 2 league matches away.

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the last two meetings): Gomel won two games, zero matches ended with a draw and Volna has zero wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: two / zero
