Both Teams to Score on Matchday

Slutsk, which sits 12th, are the underdogs in this game. However, we are backing the hosts to find the net because of home advantage and good results at home so far. The hosts have not lost at home this season in five games, scoring 8 and conceding five times. Within that duration, they average two goals per match on home ground. On the other hand, Shakhtyor may have won all their eight home fixtures so far but conceding at least a goal in three of their last four away games should give the hosts some hope of scoring on Matchday.

The Teams to Share the Spoils At Full-Time

We think this will be an important fixture for the hosts as they hope for a second victory in 10 competitive home fixtures against Shakhtyor. The fact that Slutsk is yet to lose at home in five games should give the hosting manager, Aleksandr Brazevich, some home before matchday. Nine points in five home fixtures for Slutsk against 12 points in 4 away fixtures for visitors back our argument that this promises to be a tight game and a draw looks plausible.

Only a Few Goals Expected

We also think there will be a few goals in this game. Both teams look better defensively. A draw for the hosts will their first at home against Shakhtyor. For Aleksandr Brazevich and his squad, a draw will be a good result, especially against Shakhtyor who are currently at the top of the Vysshaya League table.

Match Preview: Slutsk Host Shakhtyor for the 10th Time and Hope for the Second Home Victory against the Visitors

For Slutsk, this fixture presents a twist of many tales. A poor run of form and a desire to grab the second victory should keep them hosts beaming with expectations. We have more details in our team previews as follows.

Slutsk

The hosts hope for at least a draw in this game, which we believe will be much appreciated by the hosting manager, Aleksandr Brazevich. The fourth draw in six home games should still keep Slutsk unbeaten on home ground this season, a result we think they can get on matchday. Getting victory against in-form and table toppers Shakhtyor is especially a hefty task. However, Aleksandr Brazevich should deploy a strong defence on matchday against the highly offensive visitors.

Shakhtyor

The visitors have the second-best away record after four away games. It keeps them on toes to catch up with Dynamo Brest on away record.  Dynamo Brest has played seven times on the road this season. Moreover, the visiting team hopes for a fifth clean sheet in six league games. The question is, Can Roman Hryhorchuk get another good result on match day? The Ukrainian tactician averages an impressive 2.46 points per match after 26 games at the helm and should be a tough matchup for the hosting Brazilian coach, Aleksandr Brazevich, who averages 1.15 points per match after 20 games at the helm.
