Bate Borisov is hosting Vitebsk at Borisov Arena in round 27 in the Belarus Vysshaya League.
Bate Borisov is at the top of the Vysshaya League at the moment, but they have only 3 points more than Neman Grodno, and 4 points more than Shakhtyor Soligorsk. There are only 4 games left in the season and Bate better stay on top of their form if they want to get the title back. Offensively, Bate is the best team in Belarus with 56 scored goals, but their defense hasn’t been so good. Bate has conceded 30 goals so far. In their last Vysshaya League game against Isloch on the road, Bate has had 56% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 12 free kicks. Bate conceded a goal in the 19th minute, but just a minute later, Bate has tied the score. The final result of this match was 1-1. There are no injuries in Bate Borisov at this time, but Milic, Filipovic, and Yablonski are all in danger of being suspended if they concede 1 more yellow card. Skavysh is the leading goalscorer for Bate Borisov with 15 goals, while Ignatovich added 10 goals. I can’t say that Bate has been the best team overall in the Vysshaya League this season, but they are on a good way to get the title back in their hands.
Vitebsk is on a 2-game winning streak during which they scored 2 goals while conceding 0 goals. With 34 points, 25 scored goals, and 30 conceded goals, Bate is in 10th place in the standings, and they will stay in the Vysshaya League for another season. Nicolaescu is the leading goalscorer for Vitebsk with 9 goals, but he is no longer in the club. Cesar is the current leading goalscorer for Vitebsk with 3 goals. There are no reported injuries in Vitebsk at this time, but Klopotskiy is in danger of being suspended because of the yellow cards. In their last Vysshaya League match against Energetik at home, Vitebsk has had 51% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 29 free kicks, and 3 corner kicks. Vitebsk has won this match 1-0. All in all, a decent season for Vitebsk where they stayed out of the relegation zone for the entire time, and they were even close to the Europa League at some point. After the terrible last season in the attacking end, Vitebsk has scored more goals this season already, and there are still 4 games left to be played.
When playing at home, Bate has not lost to Vitebsk in their last 12 games. Vitebsk has won only 1 game on the road this season while winning 6 games. 5 games ended in a draw. Bate Borisov has to win here if they want to stay at the top of the table alone, and they are the better team here. I will stick with Bate Borisov at home.
