Belshina is holding up well
The newcomer from Bobruisk intends to stay in the strongest division, as long as everything goes according to plan. Belshina sit 11th with a 6-point lead from the danger zone. In the last matchday the team suffered a 0-2 away defeat at the hands of Slavia Mozyr. Given its rookie status, the club is holding up well, although it has a negative goal difference so far. Belshina play on attitude, so much will depend on psychology in the upcoming battle.
The Pitmen are the veiled leaders
Shakhtar have won the last two championships, but it will be very difficult for the club to defend the title. “Pitmen” are only eighth, but have many games in reserve, they are 8 points behind the first BATE, having played three games less. The team missed games in the championship because of the Champions League qualifying meetings, there Shakhtar had already lost in the first round to Maribor, 0-0 away and 0-2 at home, although the Pitmen were formally the hosts, the return battle was played on neutral ground. The club played in the league more than three weeks ago, losing then at home to Torpedo BelAZ 0-1, with the opponents being held penalized the entire second half.
The last time the opponents crossed paths was the season before last, when Shakhtar claimed two resounding victories – 5-1 and 4-0. There was also one friendly meeting this year, where Belshina won 3-2.
Although the visitors are given a big lead, we don’t think everything is so clear-cut in this battle. Belshina can put up a fight against the reigning champion, because the Pitmen do not show much stability. We believe that a bet on total more than 2.5 goals is a working bet here.
