Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Savon Sanomat Areena (Kuopio).
Vitebsk has faced a major drop in form compared to how they performed the last season. They had finished fourth in the table the last time around, and that too trailing by just two points behind the second-placed Shakhtyor. They also had ended their campaign with a three-game winning run.
Quite contrary to this display, they have been placed tenth in league standings right now, and have failed to score goals even at a rate of one per game.
They have so far recorded just four wins from their fourteen fixtures in the league and expectedly has a negative goal difference.
Coming up against KuPS, the team really will be tested, considering the form the Finnish are in. They proudly boast of a second spot in the table, just two points behind toppers Ilves, but have scored an astonishing seven more goals than the leaders.
Also, the squad is currently on an unbeaten run, and with them having the home advantage for this leg, the full might of the players will be expected to be on display.
