Slavia Mozyr vs BATE Borisov Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Slavia Mozyr host BATE Borisov at the Yunost Stadium, both clubs coming off 3-1 defeats to start the 2020 Belarusian Premier League season. The visitors are short priced favourites so I am turning to the total goals markets for some value in Belarus.

Slavia Mozyr Form


Slavia Mozyr went unbeaten in five of their last six Belarusian Premier League matches last season, but they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Slutsk to start the 2020 season. Andrey Chukhley put them ahead from the penalty spot, but central defender Igor Tymonyuk was sent off in the 70th minute and it changed the game.

Mikhail Martinovich’s side will hope to do better at home, but they come up against a BATE Borisov side that have beaten them in their last four matches.

Slavia Mozyr News

Ghana defensive midfielder James Kotei stayed on the bench in Slutsk and might have to wait for a start. Igor Tymonyuk is suspended with Egor Potapov likely to replace him in central defence.

19-year-old striker Ilya Vasilevich joined on loan from BATE Borisov II, he came off the bench in Slutsk and will hope to feature against his parent club. 

BATE Borisov Form


BATE Borisov won 13 straight Belarusian Premier League titles from 2006-2018 but finished second behind Dinamo Brest last season. Manager Aleksey Baga paid the price and 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, coming from behind in both encounters. Striker Maksim Skavysh scored in both legs with further goals to Pavel Nekhajchik, Dmitri Baga and Egor Filipenko.

Alshevski’s side suffered a shock 3-1 defeat at Energetyk-BGU in their first league match in 2020. Zakhar Volkov was at fault for both goals with BATE trailing 2-0 at half time, Maksim Skavysh capitalising on a goalkeeper error but BATE couldn’t equalise and conceded a late goal. 

BATE Borisov News


Winger Pavel Nekhajchik joined in the winter, scored in the cup and started at Energetyk. Centre back Zakhar Volkov had a shocker in the 3-1 defeat, his position is under threat with new signing Jakov Filipovic and Boris Kopitovic in line to replace him.

BATE Borisov have largely the same squad from last season so there are few excuses for their opening day defeat.

Slavia Mozyr vs BATE Borisov Match Up


Slavia Mozyr took the lead in their opening match and were in the game until Igor Tymonyuk was sent off. BATE Borisov are already under pressure and can’t afford another slip up here.

BATE Borisov have a far stronger squad but that didn’t help them last week at Energetik-BGU Minsk. There are doubts coming into this match, we could see a defensive switch with Croatian centre-back starting after recently signing from KSC Lokeren.
