Smolevichi’s return to the top flight continues with a home match against Shakhtyor Soligorsk. Smolevichi have lost five of their last six league Belarusian Premier League matches at Ozyorny Stadium with another defeat likely here.

Smolevichi-STI Form


Smolevichi-STI returned to the Belarusian Premier League with a 1-1 draw at Dinamo Brest with Vladislav Mukhamedov scoring the opening goal.

Aleksandr Brazevich’s side followed up with a 1-0 defeat at Isloch with Ivan Veras missing an empty net. Konstantin Kotov had another good chance to score but he fired wide after being played through by Jean-Morel Poé. 

Smolevichi fell to a 1-0 home defeat against Vitebsk in their last match. It was poor goalkeeping from Aleksandr Filtsov who parried a free kick into the top corner. Vitebsk were reduced to 10 men in the 55th minute but the hosts couldn’t take advantage.
