Match Preview

  • FC Smolevichi’s second attempt to survive a Vysshava Liga (VL) season hasn’t started well, with five low-scoring affairs (D3, L2) continuing a trend from the end of their successful second-tier campaign in 2019.
  • The battling hosts are yet to score before half-time this season, with a sound defence also contributing to eight consecutive league matches (in either division) producing under 2.5 goals, including five 0-0 half-time results, since the beginning of November 2019.
  • Dinamo Minsk’s last four VL matches have seen the home side on the day take all three points, three with a clean sheet, and another three with a HT/FT victory. Notably, Dinamo Minsk have recorded first-half goals in just one game this VL season, with four of their six VL goals arriving after the break – they are also yet to concede after half-time this league season.
  • The visitors have suffered second-half red cards in both of their VL away games to date, but are yet to concede when playing with ten men. With a perfect competitive record (W4) against Smolevichi at all venues, including three 2-0 scorelines, this could be the encounter they have been waiting for to earn their first away points.
  • Players to watch: Evgeni Barsukov was Smolevichi’s leading league goalscorer in 2019, and has opened his account as one of the club’s two goalscorers for 2020.
  • Fellow penalty-taker Evgeni Shikavka is Dinamo Minsk’s only multiple goalscorer of the 2020 VL season, with one of those coming from the spot.
  • Stat attack: Smolevichi have not accrued more than five corners in any of their VL games this season.
  • Since the beginning of 2019, Dinamo Minsk have won just five of 14 VL matches (D4, L5) as a favourite away from home.
  • Conversely, home outsiders have won or drawn seven of 11 (63.64%) 2020 VL games leading into week six.
