BATE Borisov vs FC Slutsk Preview

BATE Borisov have clawed back to the top of the Belarus Premier League (BPL) table – a spot they held to for 14 years before they lost it to Dynamo Brest in 2019. They have one of the toughest games of the season coming up on Saturday when they host a in-form Slutsk side at the Borisov stadium.

Slutsk who have never gone above the 8th position in the previous seasons they have spent in top-flight Belarusian football, are now on equal points with BATE on the table but are in the 2nd owing to a slightly inferior goal average.

BATE Borisov have been unbeaten in the last 6 games across all major competitions that includes a 3-5 win on the road against Smolevichi in their previous league encounter.

Slutsk were, though, shocked at home to a 1-2 defeat to Energetik-BGU after three consecutive wins. But their overall form, especially in away games has been excellent. Vitaliy Pavlov's men have beaten teams like Isloch, Shakhter Shakhtyor and Dinamo Minsk on their travels and scored on 7 occasions in those away fixtures while conceding just 4.

Kirill Alshevsky's men recorded their 4th win from their previous 5 BPL outings when they overpowered FC Smolevichi 3-5. BATE hammered in as many as 13 goals from these 5 games which is why May 16th's clash at the Borisov stadium promises to be a goalfest.

BATE have an overwhelming history against Slutsk with the latter managing just a solitary win from the 15 occasions they have met since 2014 and being beaten in the remaining 14.

But history may not exactly repeat itself at the Borisov Arena on Saturday given the superlative form and spirits Slutsk are in.

But critics suspect that they may be over-achieving at the moment and can be expected to drop points in the near future. Why is why UK bookmakers‘ odds favour the hosts to take 3 points from the Borisov Arena game on May 16th.
