Holding midfielder Oleg Evdokimov started in Mozyr after missing the previous three matches with injury. 19-year-old Sergey Sazonchik was back in the squad but few changes are expected to a settled Minsk side.

Winger Antom Shramchenko picked up a knock against Slavia Mozyr and is doubtful. Attacking midfielder Vladislav Nasibulin sustained an injury during the warm-up last week and is also doubtful.

FC Minsk Line Up


The predicted FC Minsk line up vs Torpedo Zhodino is: Leonov, Ostroukh, Chagovets, Ryzhuk, Prishchepa, Evdokimov, Zalesky, Yarotski, Vasilyev, Khvashchinskiy, Gribovskiy.

Yuri Puntus’ side have drawn their last two matches, 0-0 at BATE Borisov and 0-0 at home against Ruh Brest. Gabriel Ramos had three great chances to score against Ruh Brest but was unable to make them count.
