Few Goals Expected

These teams have met twice before and both matches ended with fewer than two goals of 0-0 and 1-0 in favour of Vitebsk. We expect a similar trend to continue in this fixture, especially because both teams are in some great form right now. Vitebsk has played five matches at home so far and conceded only two goals in all of them. Moreover, Ruh Brest boats 7 clean sheets in the last ten matches while Vitebsk has six clean sheets in six of their last ten matches. A formidable defence on both sides means we should see only a few goals in this match.

Teams to Share the Spoils

A review of previous encounters between Vitebsk and Ruh Brest as well as recent matches is why we cannot rule out a deadlocked game on Saturday. These teams are phenomenal at the back and so we expect a cautious approach from both sides in what will likely be a low-intensity match. A draw looks like the most plausible outcome at full-time.

Goals on both ends

Vitebsk has the home advantage in this game and previously defeated the visitors 1-0 away from home. The hosts also took a point after a 0-0 result in November 2020 matchup. After a series of barren draws in April, Vitebsk discovered their scoring form, netting an average of three goals in four straight matches before losing 2-0 the last time out. The visitors have scored an average of two goals in nine of their last ten and we fancy them to get at least one past Vitebsk goalkeeper on Saturday.

Match Preview: Vitebsk Hopes to Bank on Home Advantage for Points against Ruh Brest

Vitebsk currently sits 6th on the Vysshaya Liga table. But can they edge out the third-placed Ruh Brest in this important match? Find out more in our team previews below.

Vitebsk

Vitebsk has shown show resilience in the last ten Vysshaya Liga matches before losing 2-0 to table toppers, Shakhtyor, a few days ago. It is their only loss in the last nine outings. With no loss at home within that duration, we expect a strong display from the home team. Moreover, Vitebsk has been the better side in previous encounters with Ruh Brest and should get points in this game. The hosts managed to keep Ruh Brest from scoring in the previous two meetings.

Ruh Brest

Ruh Brest is 3rd in the league, five points shy of second-placed BATE Borisov and only a point above fourth-placed Dinamo Minsk. With such pressure, the visitors cannot afford to slip in this fixture. Getting a victory in this match should, therefore, be top of the agenda for Kirill Alshevskiy. The Belgium tactician has been in charge of Ruh Brest since January during which he has managed 12 games. An average of 2.00 points per match for the manager should be inspiring enough to help the visitors get a good result against Vitebsk on Saturday.
