THE TEAM NEWS

SLUTSK

  • Slutsk were unable to respond to their first loss in six matches against Energetik-BGU as they suffered a second consecutive defeat with BATE proving too good for them.
  • Slutsk fell behind early on and conceded a further two during the contest with the away side failing to really get into the game other than a decent spell at the end of the first half when already trailing 2-0.
  • They will be eager to get back on track here as they aim to avoid a third successive loss and may make changes to do so with Yuri Teterenko’s spot in the side under serious threat.

RUKH

  • Rukh extended their unbeaten run to six matches in the Belarus Premier League but they will be annoyed that they failed to collect all three points at home to Smolevichi.
  • Coming up against a side without a win to their name so far this season, Rukh were fancied to claim the win but were left frustrated as they played out a goalless draw.
  • They now head on the road to face Slutsk and will be keen to maintain their solid away record so far this season having lost just one of their five games on the road.

THE PREDICTION

Slutsk were outclassed by BATE last week but will hope a return to home comforts can help them avoid a third straight loss. They host in-form Rukh who have avoided defeat in their last six games and this could prove to be a tricky task for the home team. Slutsk have been involved in some very entertaining games so far this season and this should be no different with plenty of goals likely.
