Kirill Alshevsky’s men had finished second in the table last season, and qualified to Europe. However, this time around, they are yet to get into their groove, and have lost their opening two games. As such, against a newly-promoted and inexperienced Rukh Brest, BATE Borisov are expected to perform well, and make amends for their shaky start.

BATE Borisov vs Rukh Brest Prediction
Alshevsky’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Slavia Mozyr. The visitors had found the back of the net first, but the home team responded with two goals later to record the three points against their name.
In the meantime, Aleksandr Sednyov’s men lost 0-1 at home the prior game week. The guests defended well, and tried to take advantage of the opportunities they had gotten. The sole goal of the game, which also turned out to be the winner, came in the 43rd minute of the match.
As things stand, Alshevsky’s men hold a huge upper hand. They may have lost their opening two games in the competition this season, but that has made them even more dangerous. Keep note that we are talking about a team that had missed out on the title the prior season by just five points.
They will surely try to make amends this Saturday. Furthermore, their confidence would surge knowing that they are at home, and that they are taking on a team that are severely inexperienced. To be clear, Rukh Brest were formed just in 2016, and for the first two years, they were a farm club of Dinamo Brest.
Not only have they been promoted to the top flight just this season, but it also is their first ever stint at the top-most tier of the football hierarchy in Belarus. Considering all these factors, it’s inferred that BATE Borisov will record a convincing win this weekend.
