THE TEAM NEWS

SMOLEVICHI

  • Smolevichi managed to rescue a point from their trip to Belshina as they were able to capitalise on some late drama to earn their second draw in succession in the Belarusian Premier League.
  • Smolevichi looked set to suffer defeat after they fell behind thanks to a penalty with just 10 minutes remaining but Evgeni Barsukov was given a chance to level with a penalty of his own on the stroke of full time and he duly obliged.
  • Despite the point, Smolevichi’s wait for their first win of the season goes on and they will be desperate to end their drought here with Anatoli Makarov and Vladislav Mukhamedov both hoping to come into the starting XI to aid their side here.

DINAMO MINSK

  • Dinamo Minsk put their disappointing loss away at Gorodeya behind them as they bounced back with an immediate response to earn all three points in a home win against Neman last week.
  • Dinamo were the better side for most of the game but failed to make the most of their dominance and had to wait until the 72nd minute to take the lead thanks to Miha Goropevsek’s strike before Evgeni Shikavka sealed the win deep into stoppage time.
  • That was a welcome victory for Dinamo and they will now attempt to put an end to their poor away form having failed to win any of their last seven on the road in the Premier League but they should be boosted by Danilo coming back into the fold having served a ban.

THE PREDICTION

Smolevichi snatched a late point from their game last week but are yet to pick up their first win back in the Belarus Premier League. They now host Dinamo Minsk who collected their second win of the campaign as they saw off the challenge of Neman. Dinamo will be keen to kick-on but will have to put their four-match losing streak away from home in the league if they are to do so. However, they are unlikely to get many better chances and they should earn a positive result in a low-scoring encounter.
