FC Minsk

Previous Fixture: Slavia (1-3) FC Minsk

Match Highlights (25-04-2020)

Manager: Andrey Razin {Current: 3-0-3 (9th in Vysheyshaya Liga) | Top Scorer: Multiple Players (2) | Form: WLLL}

Expected Starting XI

(GK) #28 A. Leonov – (DEF) #5 Y. Ostroukh, #4 D. Ryzhuk, #19 A. Zaleskiy, #33 Y. Chachovets, #12 D. Prishchepa – (MID) #8 A. Shramchenko, #18 Y. Yarotskiy – (FWD) #7 O. Evdokimov, #10 V. Khvashchiniskiy, #11 R. Gribovskiy

Despite coming out of the gate with a hot start, FC Minsk were diligent to end a three-match losing streak in which they failed to score a goal. Their recent 3-1 win over Slavia surely did wonders for their confidence as they face one of the top teams in this early season.

FC Minsk need to find a balance between their attacking talent and their defensive duties. While they are one of the most talented and efficient attacks on display this season, their backline and midfield have failed to put up a fight – conceding 10 goals in six matches.

They are in for a step up in competition when they face off with Torpedo BelAZ. Slavia is one of the worst teams in the league in this early season, so a win was expected. FC Minsk’s backline will have to prove steadfast and improved from their early-season issues.

Torpedo BelAZ

Previous Fixture: Ruh Brest (0-0) Torpedo BelAZ

Match Highlights (26-04-2020)

Manager: Yuri Puntus {Current: 3-2-1 (3rd in Vysheyshaya Liga) | Top Scorer: Gabriel Ramos (2) | Form: DDWL}

Expected Starting XI

(GK) #1 V. Bushma – (DEF) #21 M. Bordachev, #3 V. Ustinov, #88 D. Yashin, – (MID) #77 M. Afanasjev, #10 A. Khachaturyan, #6 J. Premudrov, #81 N. Stepanov – (FWD) #33 V. Gorbachik, #8 Gabriel Ramos, #90 D. Antilevskiy

Torpedo BelAZ are looking impressive with only a single loss on the season so far. They are making a name for themselves due to their incredible defensive effort, despite a labored attack.

Torpedo have felt the effects of their conservative attack in their last two matches as they’ve achieved only a 0-0 in their last two outings. They are capable of intelligently keeping possession, but they’ll need to counter a dynamic Minsk attack.

Yuri Puntus’ side has a good opportunity to climb the table over the next few weeks. They have a beneficial upcoming schedule and taking down FC Minsk, would be a step toward the streak they’re looking for.

What’s at Stake?

Torpedo BelAZ and FC Minsk have met 33 times over the course of their clubs’ history. Torpedo BelAZ have won 14 times to Minsk’s six, with 13 draws between them. Torpedo BelAZ have had the distinct advantage scoring, with 33 goals to FC Minsk’s 23.

A win for Torpedo BelAZ could send them to the top of the table with a one point clearance on second place.

A win for FC Minsk could send them as high as second in the league table.

Players to Watch

MIN: (FWD) #10 Vladimir Khvashchinskiy

Active Prop: First Goal Scorer (+550)

Attacking Midfielder Vladimir Khvashchinskiy has been the focal point of the Minsk attack so far this season. The more time he has on the ball, the more likely FC Minsk will be able to manufacture a goal. With Torpedo’s conservative attack, Khvashchinskiy will have more than enough opportunities.

TOR: #8 (FWD) Gabriel Ramos

Active Prop: Player to Score (+300)

Gabriel Ramos had gotten off to a flying start this season, but he has cooled off since. With two goals on the current campaign, his production has dried up as he hasn’t been able to capitalize on the counterattack. Against a defensively weak FC Minsk side, the Brazilian attacker has an excellent opportunity again.
