The match of the weekend in the Belarusian Premier League pits leaders BATE Borisov against second-placed Slutsk.
Slutsk have already won five league assignments this season, only four fewer than their tally of nine in the entirety of last campaign, and their defensive frailties suggest it is only a matter of time before they come unstuck.
They have conceded in all eight of their league matches this term and are fresh from a 2-1 defeat at home to Energetik-BGU Minsk.
Opponents BATE Borisov may have relinquished the title last term but they still won 12 of their 15 home games and, after a slow start this season, they are starting to string positive results together.
They have won four matches on the spin, including victory in a 5-3 thriller against Smolevichi last time out, and should win a high-scoring affair.
