Within the scope of the Polish PlusLiga, Radom and Slepsk Suwalki volleyball teams are set to match up.
Radom is currently struggling in the PlusLiga league, taking the last, 16th position, with just two victories out of 18 matches. Of late, Radom has been on a losing streak, suffering four straight defeats, each of which was quite convincing.
Recently, Radom experienced losses against formidable opponents: they lost to Projekt Warsaw with a 0:3 scoreline, then succumbed to Gdansk with the identical 0:3 scoreline. Later on, there was a defeat against Luka Lublin with another 0:3 scoreline where, despite a fighting spirit in each set, Radom couldn't snatch a single set (set scores were 23-25, 22-25, 23-25). The team also lost against Kuprum 0:3.
It’s interesting to note that the last victory Radom clinched in the championship was on 1st January when they outplayed Barkom with a 3:1 scoreline. This success, however, failed to shift their overall season trend where the team is evidently struggling to stay competitive and is showing inconsistency in their performance.
Slepsk Suwalki currently sit at 11th place in the PlusLiga league, with a record of 7 wins and 11 losses. The team has recently shown positive momentum, bagging 3 victories in the last 5 matches, but these wins were against teams situated at the lower end of the table. Slepsk Suwalki triumphed against GKS Katowice with a 3:2 scoreline, then confidently beat Norwid Czestochowa 3:0 and Olsztyn 3:1. These outcomes may be taken as indicators of an improving form of the team and its ability to win against teams that rank lower on the tournament table.
Nevertheless, against the league’s top teams, Slepsk Suwalki faces significant challenges, losing without any considerable chances of success. Of the 11 losses, the team succumbed set-wise 1:3 on only three occasions, while in the other matches the losses were 0:3, indicating a clear gap in the level of gameplay between Slepsk and the league’s leading teams.
In the last four encounters between Slepsk Suwalki and Czarni Radom within the PlusLiga and in friendly matches, Slepsk Suwalki has demonstrated superiority, obtaining victories in all of them. On 5th November 2023 in the PlusLiga, Slepsk clinched a convincing victory with a 3:0 scoreline. On 7th October 2023, in a friendly match, Slepsk emerged victorious again with a 3:0 scoreline. During the game on 10th February 2023 within the PlusLiga, Slepsk once again won with a 3:0 scoreline. On 10th November 2022, Radom lost in a fiercer battle within the PlusLiga, but this time too, Slepsk triumphed with a 3:2 scoreline.
The visiting side stand a strong chance to overcome the team currently in the league's last position. I’m placing my bet on a Slepsk win with a set handicap of (-1.5).
