Slavia Mozyr continued their impressive start to the Belarusian domestic campaign on Saturday with a well-deserved 2-1 win away to reigning Belarus Premier League champions Dinamo Brest.
BATE still seem to be suffering from the psychological damage of missing out on their first Premier League title for 14 years last season. They did manage to get their first points on the board on Saturday, but it wasn’t exactly a dominating performance from the Belarusian heavyweights.
Slavia Mozyr have won their last two matches, beating both BATE and reigning Premier League champions Dinamo Brest.
BATE Borisov haven’t lost at home to Slavia Mozyr since 2000, but BATE have lost their last two away games, conceding five goals and scoring two.
Slavia scored in eight of their last nine matches.
BATE have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per competitive game this season, but are yet to fail to score.
BATE registered in 16 of their last 18 home games.
We actually think Slavia have a good chance of winning this match. They have won each of their last two games by two goals to one, while BATE have conceded 1.6 goals per game in all competitions this season. That being said, BATE have scored in all five of these matches, so another 2-1 win for Slavia looks a good choice.
