Dinamo Minsk and Shakhtyor are both looking to climb the Belarusian League table, but with different end goals. Shakhtyor are just four points back from pole position and catching BATE, while Dinamo Minsk are just two games back from cracking the top six.
With Shakhtyor’s six-game, high-scoring, unbeaten run, where they’ve allowed only two goals, there isn’t much to suggest Dinamo Minsk will be able to overcome them. The edge goes to Shakhtyor.

Dinamo Minsk haven’t been able to get on a good run to this point in the season. Their recent run of a single win in their last four matches has stifled their chances of climbing up the Vysheyshaya Liga table. They’ve scored three goals in their last four games, but have allowed five.
On the plus side for Dinamo Minsk they will be playing at home, where they have won three of their last five matches. Unfortunately, in their losses the’ve given up almost two goals per game.
They will be taking on one of the most formidable teams in the Belarusian Premier League in Shakhtyor Soligorsk. Dinamo Minsk’s backline hasn’t been inspiring, and Shakhtyor has been on quite the goal-scoring run. In order to take this match, Dinamo Minsk will have to defend as well as they can attack.

Shakhtyor’s recent unbeaten run gives them a distinct advantage when they come up against Dinamo Minsk. Their confidence is through the roof, as they’ve scored 14 goals over the last five matches. Despite being four points back of first place, they are matching the top spot in terms of goal difference.
Shakhtyor will have to overcome their issues when playing on the road though. Despite an excellent recent record, their away goal rate is less than two per game.
Shakhtyor’s strength and depth are what can carry them through this match with Dinamo Minsk. Even if they go down early, the strength of Shakhhtyor’s substitutes accounted for three of their goals in their alst match. Against an average defence in Dinamo Minsk, Shakhtyor could really make their mark!

Dmitri Podstrelov has been the definition of super sub for Shakhtyor Soligorsk at this point in the season. He’s been creative and involved when he’s on the pitch, opening channels and creating opportunities for his teammates and himself.
The Belarusian winger is coming off of scoring a brace in his last match against Belshina, where his two goals came within four minutes of eachother.
He may not start in this match against Dinamo Minsk, but it is more than likely that he will see the pitch in the second half. With his speed and finishing ability, he is a player to watch.

The 21 year-old second striker has been leading Dinamo Minsk in scoring this season and for good reason. While he isn’t your prototypical striker, he can control the ball well and play off of a more traditional striker.
He scored early in their last match against Vitebsk but felt the result of their most common issue where Dinamo Minsk struggles to service their attacking players.
His partnership with Evgeni Shikavka has been the best weapon for Dinamo Minsk so far this season. If Dinamo Minsk want to take this game from Shakhtyor, Bakhar will need to be efficient in his attacking influence.
