Slutsk hosts Rukh Brest in round 10 of Belarusian Vysshaya Liga. The match will be played on Friday, May 22nd at Stadyen Haradski (Slutsk)
I’m not sure that the defeat to BATE will hurt the hosts’ self-esteem too much. It was quite predictable, but the main thing is not to pay too much importance to it and move on. Problems with the squad and finances are still present, but the hosts continued to score points regularly. And can Slutsk be considered outsiders in the confrontation with Rukh? Of course, not. So far, Slutsk is in the top five and has good chances to finish at least the first round in the top eight.

The visitors have a pleasant unbeaten streak of six matches. Rukh looks quite strong in defense and scores points even on the road. Truth be told, the last successful matches were played against rather mediocre opponents. In general, Rukh does not play and does not let others do it. So far, such tactics are bearing fruit, but little is achieved in the attack - the visitors are almost the worst team of the championship in terms of goals scored.
Slutsk demonstrates a scoring game, although it makes mistakes in defense. But the hosts are capable of scoring even twice in a match. The main thing for Rukh is to keep a clean sheet. I’m not sure that the visitors will play to win since the main thing is not to lose. After two defeats in a row, it’s time for the hosts to rehabilitate themselves in front of their fans. Pavlov’s squad is a favorite at least due to attacking actions. Another thing is whether it will turn out to convert their advantage into goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Slutsk to win with 0.0 handicap
