Sergey Kovalchuk’s men had the Belarus league title with 75 points in their account from the 30 league appearances last season. They even had a five-point lead over the runners-up in the table. However, their current season has seen them collapse to the ninth position with just 29 points from 19 fixtures.
The Blue and Yellows, on the other hand, emerged as the champions from the Kazakhstan Premier League last season. They had 69 points to their title from the 33 league appearances and had a narrow one-point lead over the runners up in the table.
Brest will play after a 1-0 loss on the road against Soligorsk in their previous Belarus league clash. They haven’t scored a goal in their last three defeats in the schedule. Meanwhile, Astana is on a four-game unbeaten streak in the league, following a 2-3 win on the road against Kaspij Aktau in the KPL.
