Once again turning our attention to this weekend’s Belarusian Premier League fixtures, a red-hot Bate Borisov will be hoping to extend on their glittering purple patch when they host fellow title contenders FK Slutsk on Saturday evening.

Starting with the hosts, pulling off what was a dramatic late comeback away at Smolevichy-STI last weekend and picking up a stunning 5-3 win, BATE Borisov find the mood in their camp at a remarkable high. Despite their struggles when opening the new campaign, the Europa League outfit have found a route to the top of the Premier League and in the midst of an eye-catching purple patch, particularly in the final third. Already securing their spot in the final of this year’s Belarusian Cup, the Yellows have won their last four matchups across all competions and are unbeaten over the past six weeks. Handed the chance to build a buffer at the top of the table, it should also be noted that Kirill Alshevsky has seen his side bag at least a pair of goals in each of their previous four victories.

As for the visitors, while a shock 2-1 defeat at home against Energetyk-BGU may have brought an abrupt end to Slutsk’s three-match winning run, the mood in their camp should still be on a high. With only their goal difference now keeping them behind BATE and top spot, Vitaliy Pavlov’s men have lost just one of their last six outings and have gained a reputation for their performances on the road. Including back-to-back 2-1 victories away at Dinamo Minsk and Shakhtyor, the Blues have won each of their three Premier League appearances away from the Stadyen Haradski this year. It should also be noted each of those three victories have seen both teams find the net. In a real battle at the top of the table, Saturday’s contest appears to have all the makings of a matchup that should see an abundance of chances.
