THE TEAM NEWS

TORPEDO-BELAZ

  • Torpedo-BelAZ were unable to continue their perfect start to the season as they were defeated for the first time in the Belarusian Premier League this season in a 2-0 loss to Dinamo Minsk.
  • Torpedo found themselves two goals down at half-time against the previously winless Dinamo and the visitors were unable to respond in the second period in what was a disappointing display.
  • It is unlikely that Torpedo will make wholesale changes after winning two of their first three games but after several poor individual displays, the starting XI could be tinkered with and Valeri Gorbachik is one of those whose spot in the side is in doubt.

ENERGETIK-BGU

  • Energetik-BGU are now the only remaining side with a 100% record in the Belarus Premier League after they won a third consecutive match to begin the campaign as they defeated Minsk last weekend.
  • Energetik kept a second clean sheet in succession as they kept their opponents at bay but it was not all plain sailing for them as they were put under plenty of pressure following Aleksey Nosko’s opener just after the 20-minute mark.
  • The hosts then had to play the final 20 minutes with 10 men after Aik Musahagian was given his marching orders for a second yellow but they were able to hold on and even secured a second in the dying seconds with Jasurbek Yaxshiboev’s effort sealing the win.

THE PREDICTION

Torpedo-BelAZ put in a very poor performance which resulted in their first loss of the campaign. They will need to be a lot better following the defeat to Dinamo Minsk but face a tricky task against Enegertik-BGU. The visitors have won all three of their games so far and are the only side to do so in the Belarusian Premier League after they produced a solid display to see off Minsk. Energetik have defended very well so far and with Torpedo struggling to find the back of the net, the away side should be able to pick up a point at the very least and continue their unbeaten start to the season.
