Kick-off: 1700, 16/05/2020
Stadium: Borisov Stadium
The top two teams in the Vysshaya Liga will go head-to-head as BATE host Slutsk at the Borisov Stadium on Saturday evening.
Belarus powerhouses BATE have overcome a shocking start to the campaign to sit at the top of the table, with Slutsk in second on goal difference after last weekend’s setback.
The hosts have won the last five head-to-head clashes and 13 of 15 in all competitions so a Borisov win and over 2.5 goals at 17/20 is our initial BATE Borisov vs Slutsk prediction.
A Look BATE Borisov’s Betting Odds
BATE started terribly under new boss Kirill Alshevsky after failing to win the Vysshaya Liga for the first time in 14 years, beginning with two defeats.
However, they turned it around with five wins in their next six matches to sit at the summit of Belarus’ top flight.
BATE have won their last four matches in all competitions and are the league’s top goalscorers with 16 goals, with Slutsk just behind with one less.
BATE have had quick starts in their last 10 league matches, with over 1.5 goals scored in seven of those fixtures in the first half.
Slutsk have conceded in the opening 45 minutes in five of their eight league matches this season and it is priced at 7/5 for over 1.5 goals in the first half in the BATE Borisov vs Slutsk odds.
A Look Slutsk’s Betting Odds
Slutsk have blown their pre-season expectations out of the water as they sit in second place in the Vysshaya Liga.
They were at the summit before last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat to Energetik, which was only their second league defeat of the campaign.
Bala Muhammad Umar has been in fine recent goalscoring form, scoring his four goals this season in the last four matches.
Slutsk have been particularly strong away from home, having won all three matches of their travels this year.
All three of their away games have seen both teams score and this trend continues to their last six league matches.
It is 1/1 for both teams to find the net, which is our final BATE Borisov vs Slutsk prediction.
Smolevichi 3-5 BATE – Maksim Skavysh, Igor Stasevich, Dmitri Baga, Nemanja Milic (2)
SLUTSK 1-2 Energetik – Bala Muhammad Umar
Head-to-head: Slutsk 0-3 BATE, BATE 3-0 Slutsk, Slutsk 0-1 BATE, BATE 3-1 Slutsk, BATE 6-0 Slutsk
