Shakhtar Soligorsk is welcoming FC Minsk to Stroitel Arena in round 30 in the Belarus Vysshaya League.
Shakhtar hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games in the Vysshaya League, and they are in second place in the standings with 56 points, just 1 point away from the top, and they are hoping that Bate Borisov will tie or lose their game against a good opponent. Shakhtar is the best team overall in the league this season, and they have scored 53 goals while conceding 19 goals in 29 games. In their last match against Rukh Brest on the road, Shakhtar has had 48% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 16 free kicks, and 2 corner kicks. Shakhtar has to win this game if they wanted to stay in the title race, and they did. The final score was 1-2 for Shakhtar Soligorsk. Podstrelov is the leading goalscorer with 8 goals, while Yakhshibaev added 7 goals. Shindagoritze and Politevich are injured, but they have been injured for a while. There is a lot at stake in this game, and Shakhtar has to win, and with that, they must hope that Bate won’t win on the road. Shakhtar deserved to win the title this season, but not every time the most deserved team wins.
FC Minsk is in 10th place, safely outside the relegation zone, and it doesn’t matter if they win or lose this game. Minsk has scored nice 43 goals this season, but they have conceded massive 53 goals so far. In their last game in the Vysshaya League, Minsk was hosting Vitebsk, and they have had 44% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 9 free kicks, and 4 corner kicks. Minsk has also had a 2-0 lead, but Vitebsk tied the score in the 92nd minute. The final score of this game was 2-2. With 9 scored goals, Vasiliev is the leading goalscorer for Minsk, while Gribovskiy added 6 goals. There are no injuries or suspensions in Minsk at this time. As I’ve mentioned earlier, Minsk has had a solid season in the attacking end, but their defense has been one of the worst in the league, but they will repeat the last season. The season is over for Minsk, and I know they would like to end it with a win, but it doesn’t really matter. Minsk was able to stay in the Vysshaya League, but they are still far from the Europa League.
When playing at home, Shakhtar has not lost to Minsk in their last 8 games, and because Shakhtar needs a win here, I don’t think they will start losing now. Shakhtar is the better team here, and I see them getting a win here in hopes of a bad result for Bate Borisov.
