Soligorsk vs Brest Prediction
Kovalchuk’s men are the defending champions of the domestic league, and are in a favorable position to make an appearance in the final. They have won the first leg of the semi-final, with a 2-0 scoreline. All they need to do now is to make sure that the Miners do not win by a big margin.
The hosts will be on the back foot from the get-go, as they have to make up a deficit of two goals in the ninety minutes, while their counterparts will have the luxury of picking their moments to attack due to their aggregate lead. This desperation will surely lead to the Miners making mistakes, and Kovalchuk’s men will be happy to take advantage.
Moreover, the Miners had lost two of the past three h2h clashes, and had failed to score in both. Taking all these observations into account, it’s expected that Brest will qualify to the final after this second leg.
Be that as it may, understand that the home team are no mean opponents. They are the title-holders of the Belarus Cup, and they have been one of the best teams in the country for quite some time. They have also recorded 16 of the prior 19 h2h wins at this venue.
On top of that, they will be desperate for the win, and honestly have nothing to lose even if they concede a goal (they are already trailing in the aggregate scoreline). Likely, expect Shakhtyor to resort to an attacking brand of football, and this should present goals from both teams this game week.
