THE TEAM NEWS

SLAVIA

  • Slavia suffered a disappointing loss away at Isloch last week as they failed to make it four successive matches without tasting defeat in the Belarusian Premier League and they will now attempt to bounce back as they return to home soil to host Minsk.
  • Neither side were able to break the deadlock in a very even first half but it was the home side that took the lead from the spot just after the hour before they doubled their lead 10 minutes later.
  • Francis Narh pulled one back for Slavia but they were unable to get on level terms as they suffered their second defeat of the campaign and they may opt to bring Nikita Melnikov back into the starting XI as they look to put that loss behind them at the first attempt.

MINSK

  • Minsk lost for a third straight game as their issues in front of goal continued and they will be desperate to end their poor run but face an uphill task as they face a trip away from home for the second game in a row.
  • Having failed to score in their previous two defeats, Minsk made it three games without even finding the back of the net as they were edged by Rukh’s goal just after half-time in last week’s clash.
  • Although they are struggling in front of goal, Minsk also have issues at the back having failed to keep a clean sheet so far this season and they may look to make several changes to their side as they bid to stop the rot.

THE PREDICTION

Minsk have failed to score in any of their last three matches and that has resulted in three successive losses. They will be eager to get back on track as they travel to Slavia but may have the work cut out. The hosts lost last weekend but they are unbeaten in their last five on home soil and with Minsk winning just one of their last seven league games on the road, the home side are likely to be too good in this one.
