Odds and preview for this weekend’s fixtures

We’ve reached the fifth round of fixtures in the new season of the Belarusian Premier League.

And with plenty of mouth-watering clashes this weekend, we’ve previewed the best of the action.


There are two games to get stuck into on Friday, starting with Belshini v Smolevichi at 15:30. The pair are currently the bottom two in the table, with the lower-placed hosts the slight favourites at 27/10.

Smolevichi are going at 21/10 while our traders have the draw priced at 9/5.

Then at 17:30, Soligorsk have the backing at 2/5 to claim a home win over Slutsk, despite the visitors flying high in third and just two points off top.

Slutsk won 3-2 at Isloch last weekend and are 15/2 to repeat the feat, with the draw going at 3/1.


We’ve got four games to look forward to on Saturday, including league leaders Zhodino’s trip to BATE Borisov at 18:00.

BATE are currently seventh in the table after a slow start to the campaign but they should win comfortably at 2/5, with Zhodino priced at 13/2 to continue their fine form.

Elsewhere, Vitebsk are 21/5 to secure a surprise home win over 2/3 priced Brest, with the draw going at 9/4.

Saturday kicks off with FC Rukh Brest’s clash with FC Minsk at 12:00, with the hosts the narrow favourites at 31/20.

Meanwhile at 14:00, FK Isloch Minsk are 11/10 to edge past 12/5 opponents Slavia Mozyr.
