After suffering surprising defeats in their opening two matches of the Belarusian Premier League season, Bate Borisov have surged into life. The 15-time Belarusian champions have collected 19 points from the last 21 available to move to the top of the table.
Next up for Bate is the first of a league-and-cup double header against Dinamo Brest, who ended their title dominance in 2019, this week.
Champions Dinamo have made a stuttering start to their title defence and will slip nine points behind Bate if they lose in Wednesday night’s Premier League clash.
Defence has been a continued source of struggle for the champions which could spell trouble against the league leaders. BATE have scored at least two goals in five of their last six outings and struck five in their latest away outing at Smolevichi-STI.
Backing the visitors to succeed in a game containing at least three goals has obliged in all six of their league victories this term and that looks the best approach. They have netted exactly three goals in three of their last six league games and, with Dinamo Brest finding the net in all but two of their league games this season, a 3-1 correct score prediction looks a good choice.
