Our prediction for this Belarus Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when BATE and Shakhtyor face each other in the Belarus Premier League derby at Borisov Arena. BATE dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Vitebsk, and, no doubt, the league leaders are eager to return to winning ways in the Belarusian elite division. Stanislav Dragun, who scored his fifth goal of the season at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Shakhtyor, on the other hand, have been in a splendid form of late, with the team recording a win in each of their last four league matches. The Miners are eyeing their eighth consecutive clean sheet in the national championship, but preventing BATE attackers from scoring is easier said than done. Kirill Alshevskiy’s men are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that they are going to extend their winning run at Borisov Arena to four games.
