Smolevichi is a newcomer to the league, and the team does not feel comfortable in this league so far. After nine rounds played, Smolevichi still does not know the joy of victory. It earned only four points. It takes the penultimate line in the standings, and the gap from the play-out place is already six points. The saving 13th place is seven points ahead. As we see, the team was not ready to fight in the highest division. The selection of players is poor. There are many young players aged 21-22-23 years. The defensive line was also made up of young boys, only Zhevnerov and Vasilenko are over 30, and they could not cope with their responsibilities. 14 goals have been conceded. And the team has no one to score in the attack.
Despite losing in Grodno, Torpedo is in good shape. And it is quite capable of coping with the newcomer to the league at home. The hosts play very reliably in defense - they conceded only eight goals, the least in the league. And they use their attempts effectively. There are 13 goals in the asset. In the offseason, the team acquired a very good 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder Velosco, and he has already scored three goals in only seven matches played. Playing against such a defensive line as Smolevichi has, the Brazilian may well replenish his goal account, and thereby help his team to gain the sixth victory in the championship. Opponents met four times. And Torpedo won all four games.
Prediction for the match: Torpedo BelAZ to win
