BATE Borisov vs Ruh Brest Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


BATE Borisov are in desperate need of a win in the Belarusian Premier League as they host Ruh Brest at Borisov Arena. BATE lost their first two matches on the road but are formidable at home, can they bounce back?

BATE Borisov Form


BATE Borisov finished second last season after winning 13 straight Belarusian Premier League titles. Manager Aleksey Baga was replaced by Kirill Alshevski in December.

BATE beat Dinamo Minsk 2-1 away and 3-2 at home to advance in the Belarus Cup as they came from behind in both matches. Maksim Skavysh scored in both games with Pavel Nekhajchik, Dmitri Baga and Egor Filipenko on target.

BATE Borisov’s 2020 league campaign started poorly with two straight defeats. Alshevski’s side suffered a 3-1 defeat at Energetyk-BGU with defender Zakhar Volkov at fault for Energetyk’s first two goals.

Their last match resulted in a 2-1 defeat at Slavia Mozyr. Willum Thór Willumsson put BATE ahead with a fine strike early on but more sloppy defending and goalkeeping cost them again.

BATE Borisov will be pleased to return home where they have won 22 of their last 25 matches in the Belarusian Premier League.

BATE Borisov News


Goalkeeper Denis Shcherbitski is injured which is a blow with Anton Chichkan looking shaky between the posts. Centre back Zakhar Volkov was replaced by Boris Kopitovic after having a shocker in the 3-1 defeat at Energetyk-BGU.

Aleksandar Filipovic started at right back at Slavia Mozyr while Dmitri Bessmertniy lost his starting spot to striker Anton Saroka. 

Ruh Brest Form


Ruh Brest was founded in 2016 and won the Belarusian Second League in their debut season in 2018. They earned promotion to the top flight  from the Belarusian First League in 2019.

Their debut in the Belarusian Premier League was a 1-0 win at Dinamo Minsk. Oleksiy Kovtun headed home Chidi Osuchukwu’s corner with goalkeeper Aleksandr Nechaev making some vital saves in the second half.

Ruh Brest fell to a 1-0 home defeat to Energetik-BGU last time out. Denis Grechikho tested the opposition keeper twice from distance, Sergey Tikhonovskiy going the closest with a long range shot that hit the post.

Ruh Brest News


Ruh Brest are integrating many new players into their squad. Manager Aleksandr Sednev replaced the absent centre back Artem Rakhmanov with Vitali Gajduchik against Energetik-BGU in the only change to his starting side.

Artem Petrenko faces competition from Abdoulaye Diallo for the striker position.

BATE Borisov vs Ruh Brest Match Up


BATE Borisov have a far stronger squad than Ruh Brest but it hasn’t helped them against inferior opposition in their opening two defeats. Manager Kirill Alshevski is under huge pressure and nothing less than a home victory will do here.
Ruh Brest showed they can compete in the Belarusian Premier League but this is by far their biggest test. They were largely reliant on long range shots last weekend, can they get closer to goal against BATE?
