Belshina Bobruisk vs. BATE Borisov Belarusian Premier League June 21

It is top versus bottom this week in Belarus, as perennial champion BATE Borisov travels to Bobruisk to take on a Belshina team hot off its first win of the season.

The home side is still a point adrift at the foot of the table and already looking like it will return swiftly to the second tier at the end of the season. My Belshina Bobruisk vs. BATE Borisov prediction and betting pick is below.

Belshina Bobruisk vs. BATE Borisov Odds

Belshina Bobruisk to Win+980
The Draw+493
BATE Borisov to Win-413

These are the kinds of prices that we are used to seeing relating to BATE games in Belarus. With its poor start to the season, there was a brief opportunity to get fairly attractive odds for BATE victories, but it seems like that time has passed now that things have gotten back to normal.

Match Preview

It took 13 attempts, but Belshina finally managed to win its first game of the season last week as it stunned Energetik-BGU with a 1-0 victory away from home. That came a week after Smolevichi managed to win its first game, so it might get a little more interesting down at the foot of the table now.

But it is surely asking too much for Belshina to repeat that achievement this weekend. BATE surprised everyone by losing its first two games this year but has hardly dropped a point since then. Belshina has the worst defensive record in the league and could be on the receiving end of a soccer lesson on Sunday.

The one plus point for Belshina is that BATE has drawn its last two games against Vitebsk and Shakhtyor Soligorsk. Last weekend’s game was a top-of-the-table clash, but it was still supposed to go the way of the bigger club. It is not much, but Belshina manager Eduard Gradoboyev has to take the positives wherever he can.

It is more likely that BATE will dominate this game from the opening whistle and consolidate its position at the top of the league. Those two draws have allowed Shakhtyor and a group of clubs in the chasing pack to stay within touching distance at the top, so BATE needs a few wins to extend the points gap once again.

Belshina Bobruisk vs. BATE Borisov Prediction and Pick

  • BATE Borisov to Win

There may be some soccer romantics out there that will take Belshina’s win last week as a sign that BATE is in for an embarrassing defeat here. But I can’t see the worst team in the league beating the best this Sunday. The odds don’t make a single bet viable, but BATE will definitely win this one.
