Isloch Minsk hosts Neman in round 1 of Belarusian Vysshaya Liga. The match will be played on Saturday, March 21st at FC Minsk Stadium (Minsk)
Isloch is facing a difficult task. Last season the team showed its best result in history (however, it is not big - the club was founded in 2007 and didn’t play in the Premier League until 2016). The club managed to climb to 5th place, having won almost half of the meetings (13) and gained 47 points. Only the usual leaders, a pair of Dynamo, Shakhtyor Soligorsk and BATE, were above. It is difficult to expect that there will be further progress, but will Vitaly Zhukovsky, who has been managing the team for ten years, keep the level achieved? Moreover, his players were very seriously reviewed in the offseason. About fifteen players left the team for different reasons, and some left simply in the status of free agents. But there are a lot of signatures, including the Nigerians Yusuf and Adegbola. Isloch also managed to sign a contract with Momo Yansane - the striker from Guinea scored 11 goals in the championship last year.

The club from Grodno has been constantly losing ground in recent years. If the Yellow-Greens were sixth in 2017, a year later, they finished one place lower. As for the last championship, they closed the top ten in the Premier League. Nevertheless, the management continues to trust the coach, Igor Kovalevich, who has been in this post for the last four years, since 2016. Will the specialist manage to break the statistics? After the end of the last championship, Artem Kontsevoi finished his career. However, the veteran recently could not score. For various reasons, many players left Neman. But there are also interesting beginners. We will especially single out Gegham Kadymyan, who spent the lion's part of his career in Ukrainian clubs. He also had experience in the Armenian national team and played for Alashkert in the Europa League.
Bookmakers believe that Isloch should continue to improve the statistics of head-to-head meetings - they gave a much lower coefficient for the hosts’ victory. This time it is quite possible to agree with the experts.
Prediction for the match: Isloch Minsk to win
