Shakhtyor Soligorsk hosts Torpedo BelAZ Zhodino in round 1 of Belarusian Vysshaya Liga. The match will be played on Thursday, March 19th at Stroitel Stadium (Soligorsk)
Both teams have already opened the official season, having played two head-to-head matches in the quarterfinals of the Belarus Cup. The Miners won in both meetings, having managed to score three goals and kept a clean sheet. The history of head-to-head matches shows that the visitors were lucky extremely rarely, and the last success was far back in 2017. In the last five games, Shakhtyor beat Torpedo four times with a clean sheet, scoring three or more goals in three matches. Soligorsk is very good on the home pitch. Having not conceded a single goal in the last matches, the team hit the net of the visitors 12 times, gained four victories and tied only once.

Torpedo did not find any arguments against its rivals in the last four games, having lost four of them in a row. And they have never managed to score at least one goal, even on the home field.
Recent results clearly indicate poor readiness of Torpedo for the start of the season. Shakhtyor intends to fight at least for European cups, and the overall level of teams is incomparable. I think we will see a confident victory of the hosts, perhaps with a clean sheet.
Prediction for the match: Shakhtyor Soligorsk to win with -1.0 handicap
