Slutsk vs Rukh Brest
Belarus- Premier League
Date: Saturday, 23 May 2020
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadyen Haradski.
Slutsk was 11th in the previous edition of the Premier League. But after 9 rounds they are 4th in the table, just 2 points away from a Europa League qualification spot.
After toppers BATE, they are the top-scoring side in the ongoing season with 15 goals. But the defense has let them down many times with 14 goals conceded.
The last two matchdays were against tough opposition like BATE and Energetik-BGU which resulted in 2 consecutive defeats. This upcoming game is their golden chance to return to winning ways.
Compared to their compatriots Belshina, Rukh Brest is doing well in their first season in the top tier. They are on a 6 match unbeaten run right now.
Even though 80% of those games were drawn they have played against some top teams like Zhodino and BATE recently.
But the team needs to improve on their scoring department. From 9 matches they have netted only 7 goals which are the second-lowest after Gorodeja.
The defense have done alright, with just 5 goals conceded until now. So they are capable of breaking down the attacking tactics of the hosts.
Slutsk vs Rukh Brest: Head-to-head (h2h)

Slutsk vs Rukh Brest: Prediction
The hosts had some poor results in recent times. But they had a 5 match unbeaten run which included 4 wins going on before that. In this season they have done extremely well against teams at the bottom of the table. All that credit goes to their forwards who were exceptional so far.
Rukh Brest is not afraid of tougher opposition even away from home. The away match against Zhodino clearly underlined their character to not back down. But they have never face Slutsk even in a friendly game before. They may get chances to score and may get a goal too. But the inexperience may prove crucial in this upcoming fixture. So I am backing the hosts to win and both teams scoring.
