Torpedo BelAZ, by their own standards, are currently on a dreadful run of form. They haven’t been able to put together consecutive wins since the opening two weeks of competition. They face an Isloch team who are enjoying their first consecutive lossless streak since Gameweek 2.
Despite having the majority of possession in their last match against Dinamo Brest, Torpedo BelAZ was unable to capitalize. True to their regular issues throughout the season, the Torpedo backline has not been near consistent enough for them week in and week out. They might get a slight break against a less talented Isloch attacking group, but their recent form is concerning.
In order for Torpedo BelAZ to take down Isloch they will have to commit to their attack. They have a number of options going forward, particularly 25-year-old attacker Valeri Gorbachik. Capitalizing on their usual lion’s share of possession will be key.

While Isloch has fallen down the Vysheyshaya Liga table over the past couple of weeks, a small consolation can be taken in the fact that it was against a number of strong sides. A 2-1 loss to Energetyk-BGU and a 1-0 loss to BATE aren’t nearly as bad as the scoreline suggests.
The truth is that Isloch just doesn’t look to have the quality going forward to launch them up the Premier League table. They are one of the league’s lower-scoring outfits, getting by on an organized defense and limited chances.
Isloch hasn’t allowed more than one goal in their last three games in which they are 1-1-1. Their defense is solid, but they’ll need to show some creativity in attack to come out with three points.
What’s at Stake?
- Torpedo BelAZ and Isloch have met 11 times over the course of their Premier League histories. Isloch owns the slight historical advantage, with five wins to Torpedo BelAZ’s four. Isloch have won the last three meetings.
- A win for Torpedo BelAZ could send them as high as second in the Premier League.
- A win for Isloch could vault them up the Premier League table, as high as eighth.
Players to Watch
Torpedo BelAZ – #20 (FWD) Lipe Veloso
Torpedo BelAZ enter this match with a serious eye on scoring some goals. They’ve struggled to mount an effective attack in recent weeks.
Cue Brazilian attacking midfielder Lipe Veloso. Veloso has only appeared in 10 matches this season, half of those being as a substitute. He is likely their most dangerous attacking player on his day, with excellent individual ability and an eye for creating for his teammates.
Veloso already has three goals in this Premier League campaign, having most recently scoring a brace in a 3-1 victory over Gorodeya.
Isloch – #15 (FWD) Dmitri Komarovskiy
In an up and down season for FC Isloch, the play of veteran forward Dmitri Komarovskiy has been one of the few constants.
Komarovskiy is Isloch’s designated penalty taker, but he’s also been able to convert regularly in open play. Komarovskiy has now scored in five of his last seven matches.
Isloch will be looking to Komarovskiy for another decisive goal against Torpedo BelAZ. He’s not particularly creative on his own, but given opportunities he’s been a clinical finisher.
