Belshina Bobruisk is welcoming Bate Borisov to Spartak Stadium in round 14 of the Belarus Vysshaya League.
Belshina has finally got a win this season, and it happened against Energetik on the road last week. Belshina has had 47% of ball possession in that match, 3 shots on goal, and 4 corner kicks. Belshina has won this game with a goal in 47th minute. After they got ahead, Belshina still had to defend and they did a good job by doing it, and in the end, Belshina has won this game 0-1. Despite this victory, Belshina is still in the last place in the standings with only 6 points, 10 scored goals, and 27 conceded goals in 13 games. I know it’s hard to play as the newcomer to the top Belarus league, but Belshina is by far the weakest team in Vysshaya League and they will get relegated despite having a lot of time to turn things around. Belshina just doesn’t have enough offensive firepower to compete with the majority of the teams in the Vysshaya League, and I think it’s better for them to be relegated to the division where their word matters.
After a rocky start of the season, Bate Borisov hasn’t lost any of their last 12 games and has won the Belarus Cup in between. Bate Borisov has scored 27 goals in 13 games this season and is the best offensive team in the Vysshaya League, while their defense has been decent with 14 conceded goals. In their most recent match in the Vysshaya League against Shakhtyor Soligorsk, Bate has had 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, and 7 corner kicks. It was a good match for Bate Borisov, but unfortunately for them, this match ended in a 2-2 draw. Bate Borisov is still at the top of the Vysshaya League with 27 points, 2 points more than Shakhtyor, and 4 points more than Neman Grodno. Bate’s defense has been inconsistent as of late, and they conceded 4 goals in their last 2 games, but the good news is that Bate is scoring a lot of goals and they are not planning to stop anytime soon. Bate has already won one title this season, the one in the Belarus Cup, and I think they will win the Vysshaya League as well after they shockingly lost it last season. Bate Borisov is the best team in Belarus, and they have been the best for many years.
Of the 17 games, Belshina and Bate have played against each other, Bate has won 16, while 1 game ended in a draw. There is nothing here that would make me bet on Belshina even if they played against someone not as good as Bate Borisov. I think Bate gets back on the winning track here.
