Once again turning our attention to this weekend’s Belarusian Premier League fixtures, a high-flying BATE Borisov will hope to extend on their recent purple patch when they make the trip to a struggling Smolevichy-STI on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, despite making their Premier League return earlier in the year, Smolevichy-STI have drastically struggled in their opening contests. Putting in another worrying display at the back last weekend and hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat at home against Energetyk-BGU, Head Coach Aleksandr Brazevich has seen his side hit with back-to-back losses and are still searching for their first victory since opening the new campaign. Managing to record just a single clean sheet this year and already finding themselves sat five points adrift of safety since opening May, Sunday’s hosts also hold a worrying record against BATE. Including shipping three goals the last time they welcomed the European outfit to the Ozyorny Stadium, they have never managed to record a single victory against BATE.

As for the visitors, despite opening the new campaign with back-to-back defeats, BATE have really bounced back in some style. Putting in another rampant display and picking up a thumping 3-1 win against Neman Grodno last weekend, the Yellows have won their last three Premier League matches on the bounce and the mood in their camp remains at a season-high. Looking to mount a title charge after securing a silver medal finish last year, Kirill Alshevsky’s men are in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run and have really started to shine in the final third. Grabbing at least a pair of strikes in each of their previous four victories, including recording five strikes in their last two matchups on the road, there is no doubt that Sunday’s guests should be confident of extending on what has been a glitter purple patch at the Ozyorny Stadium this weekend.
