With a golden opportunity to climb to the top of the Premier League standings, a free-scoring Shakhtyor will make the trip to the Stadyen Haradski on Friday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, with it appearing that their much-needed 2-0 win against Isloch earlier in the month was a minor bounce, Slutsk have drastically struggled to match a similar level they opened the 2019/2020 campaign with. Completely outplayed last weekend and hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat away at Vitebsk, the Blues have managed to land just three points over their last six Premier League appearances and have continued freefalling down the table. Now in the midst of a woeful run of form that has seen them land just a single victory since May 2nd, Head Coach Alexander Konchits will also be concerned by the last time they welcomed Shakhtyor to the Stadyen Haradski. When the title-chasers last came to town, Slutsk were hit with a dreadful 5-0 hammering and the Premier League scrappers should be in for another overwhelming test in midweek.

As for the visitors, while the mood in Slutsk’s camp might remain at a real low, the same cannot be said for a free-scoring Shakhtyor. With only their goal difference keeping them behind BATE and top spot, the Moles once again laid down another marker with a glittering 4-0 romp against Smolevichy-STI last weekend. Enjoying a stunning 15-match unbeaten run that stems all the way back to the middle of April, there is no doubt that Head Coach Yuriy Vernydub will be hugely excited by his side’s clinical edge in front of goal. Once again bagging a quartet of strikes on home soil last week, the guests have also now recorded four strikes against both Torpedo BelAZ and Gorodeya since opening July. In a contest that should prove to once again be a lively contest at the Stadyen Haradski on Friday afternoon, we’re backing over 2.5 goals this week.
