Match Betting (1x2)

BATE Borisov are easily the most well-known club who operate in the Belarusian Premier League. They have won the title on fifteen occasions since their formation in 1973 and have regularly participated in the Champions League and Europa League during their history.

However, the team were unable to win last season’s title after Dynamo Brest were crowned champions and it’s been a bad start for Kirill Alshevsky’s team this time around, with BATE having lost their opening two matches of the campaign.

After beating Belarus Minsk in the cup home and away, the mood was good going into the opener against Energetik-BGU Minsk although that game ended in a 3-1 defeat and the team were then beaten on the road for a second time when losing against Slavia Mozyr.

It means that BATE are already playing catch up with the leading teams and three points is essential to get their season finally started, with the bookies making them strong favourites to win Saturday’s clash at the Borisov Arena.

The home side are a 3/10 chance to claim three points against a FK Ruh Brest side who will feel this is a good time to be playing opponents who have suddenly become vulnerable after a long period of dominance.

FK Rukh Brest were playing in the Belarusian First League last season although they managed to finish in third place and then enjoyed promotion through the play-offs, with the players likely to relish this encounter.

You can get odds of 8/1 that Aleksandr Sednyov’s side claim a shock victory and subject their illustrious opponents to a third consecutive defeat, although it could be a tall order.

On the flip side, Rukh Brest did win away to Dinamo Minsk in their opening match before a home defeat against Energetik-BGU Minsk although early signs are that they’re going to acquit themselves pretty well this season.

Asian Handicap

The Asian Lines offer customers the chance to bet on a team with a potential handicap or advantage depending on how you see the game unfolding. BATE Borisov supporters will be hoping for a big reaction from their players after a couple of early setbacks and there’s the chance to back them with a deficit.

For example, you can get a shade of above evens that the home side win off a -1.5 goal handicap which means they would need to win the game by two clear goals although there are concerns over a defence which has shipped five goals in their opening two league matches.

The visitors are are available at around 3/4 off a +1.5 handicap mark and that would mean they could lose by a single goal and still come up trumps in this encounter.

Both Teams to Score

The home fans will want BATE to attack and 5/4 is available about both teams finding the net over the ninety minutes, although the bookies expect at least one club to struggle to find the net come the final whistle.

That is why 8/13 is available about the “No” option on this betting market and perhaps the favourites will be able to earn their first clean sheet of the season.
