Belshina vs Minsk predictions for Sunday’s Belarus Vysshaya Liga fixture at Stadyen Spartak. Can the hosts make a winning start to their time in the first division? Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Pick: Both Teams To Score

REASON FOR THIS PREDICTION

  • When this pair met in the cup last term, Minsk won by three goals to one at this venue.
  • Minsk kept a clean sheet in only one of their 15 away matches last season.

New beginning for Belshina

Having done the business in the second division last season, Belshina, who’ve not graced this level with their presence since 2016, find themselves back in the Premier League. They’ll be looking to kick start their campaign by beating a side that finished in the middle of the pack last time around.

Ahead of the new campaign, the hosts will be in good spirit; their back in the big time and are coming off the back of a confidence-boosting promotion campaign. However, recent form against Sunday’s opponents doesn’t point towards them thriving. Despite being in different divisions since 2016, this pair met in the cup last season. On that occasion, Minsk won by three goals to one at this venue and relatively comfortable in doing so.

Fortunately, the hosts have made a few changes over the summer, bringing in a handful of players with top-division experience, so they’ll fancy themselves to fare better.

Steady progress

Back in 2017, Minsk narrowly missed the drop, finishing just three points above 15th place. They’ve since made progress. In 2018, they climbed to an 11th place finish, beating the drop by a more comfortable six points, while last term, Sunday’s visitors improved further by finishing in 9th. Can the upward curve continue?

Minsk enjoyed a reasonable campaign last time around, though most of their best efforts came at home. On the road, they ended the season winless in three, two of which they lost, while they won just game away from home in total, losing nine and drawing five. Somewhat alarmingly, they kept a clean sheet in just one out of 15 on their travels.

Goals for both forecast

When the pair met in the cup last season, Minsk were deserved winners, but their overall away efforts from the previous campaign don’t exactly suggest that they’ll win this match with ease. Having made some upgrades during the off-season, the hosts can compete. ‘Both Teams to Score’ looks a reasonable bet. The travelling side should make light work of scoring, but both teams found the net when Belshina last hosted Minsk, who rarely keep a clean sheet on the road.
