BATE hosts Rukh Brest in round 3 of Belarusian Vysshaya Liga. The match will be played on Saturday, April 4th at Borisov Arena (Barysaw)
The beginning of the season for the main contenders for the champion’s title does not look good, to put it mildly. First, the team went on a visit to Energetik, who escaped from relegation last season. BATE was pressing during the whole match, but the hosts converted everything that they created, and the result was 3-1. In the next round, BATE went on a visit to Slavia, which managed to take away points from BATE far in 2016. The game ended with a 2-1 score. I can’t say that those defeats were deserved, and I’m sure the team will earn its first three points in the first home match.

Rukh is a newcomer to the league, and it managed to surprise in the first round, having beaten Dynamo Minsk (0-1). But in the next round, they received an unanswered goal from Energetik. The away team had the following statistic in the first league: eight wins and six draws, with 34 goals scored and 12 conceded, which is an average of 3+ goals per game. Can Rukh count on a goal against BATE? Of course, it can. Keeping the pressure of the hosts will be extremely difficult, and given the beginning of the season, Alshevsky’s team is more than able to concede even from the underdog.
I am sure the Yellow-Blues will run for the first points, but they can forget about defense. And I am waiting for at least three goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
