THE TEAM NEWS

VITEBSK

  • Vitebsk’s struggles in the Belarusian Premier League continued as they failed to win for a fourth consecutive game with winless Belshina able to hold them to a draw last week.
  • Vitebsk appeared to be heading for defeat after they conceded from the spot with just under half an hour remaining but managed to salvage a point thanks to Julio Cesar’s leveller with 12 minutes left.
  • In a bid to end their poor run of form, Vitebsk may look to tweak their side and could call upon 21-year-old midfielder Aleksandr Ksenofontov here after he came off the bench to make his first appearance of the campaign last weekend.

DINAMO MINSK

  • Dinamo Minsk were able to put back-to-back defeats behind them as they claimed the three points in their clash with Isloch thanks to a narrow 1-0 success.
  • Ivan Bahkar’s effort on the hour proved to be the difference between the two teams as Dinamo managed to hang on despite finishing the game with 10 men.
  • Edgar Olekhnovich was shown a second yellow card with 73 minutes on the clock and he will now have to serve a one-match suspension in this contest.

THE PREDICTION

Vitebsk will be desperate to end their winless run that now stands at four matches when they host Dinamo Minsk. The visitors have struggled for consistency so far this campaign with four wins and five defeats to their name but they have scored five more goals than the hosts and that extra firepower should help them to come out on top here.
