Belarus Championship this weekend 16-05-2020

Results of the last tour of Belarus Championship shows that leader have been changed. Despite the unstable play BATE have easily won “Smolevichi” and have reached the first place. However, Borisov team can easily lose it - as soon as they will play with “Slutsk”, who have even higher score.

Tournament table could be lead also by “Torpedo” - who can win the home game with “Gorodeya” easily. The acting champion - due to the tour results - is planning to go to the leading group - to do this Brest “Dynamo” will have to win the guest game with “Energetik”. Same is the task for “Shakhtyor” who will play the home game with “Slavia”.
The Torpedo was more dangerous than we thought. Torpedo BelAZ swept aside Gorodeya 3-1 in Belarus yesterday, and we have work to do to turn this week around despite a strong start.

We'll stay in Belarus, and we'll check in with the surprise league leaders Slutsk, as they visit big boys BATE Borisov.

Slutsk have been a breath of fresh air this season. They have whacked in 15 goals in eight league matches, but have also conceded 11. They were absolutely flying at the top until last weekend's shock 2-1 home defeat to Energetyk. On the road, they have won their last four matches, and have scored at least twice in all four of those games. For a team that finished 11th last term, this has been a hugely surprising start to the campaign.

BATE Borisov were knocked off their throne by new champions Dinamo Brest last season, and they made a slow start to this campaign. The Yellow-Blues have picked up of late, winning five of their last six in the league, and making progress in the cup. BATE have scored 16 times across their last five league games.
