Neman Grodno has been inconsistent to say the best through eight weeks of the Belarusian Premier League campaign. They perform best at home where they are yet to lose and have scored six goals to their opponents’ one. They face a Ruh Brest side that is yet to win on the road.
Igor Kovalevich’s side is coming off of a 3-1 defeat to BATE Borisov this past Sunday. After going down 2-0 before 20 minutes had even elapsed, Neman Grodno was only able to muster a consolation goal before the whistle sounded to a 3-1 defeat. Gegham Kadimyan was the goal scorer.
Neman Grodno hope to claw their way further from the relegation zone with a win over Ruh Brest. Ruh Brest has been similarly inconsistent throughout the season and Neman Grodno will want to capitalize. Despite only nine points in seven matches, Neman Grodno must overcome a Ruh Brest defense that has conceded only three goals this season.

Ruh Brest haven’t had the most encouraging run to begin the 2020 Vysheyshaya Liga season. Despite an opening match win over Dinami Minsk, Ruh Brest have failed to capitalize on that inaugural match momentum.
At this point in the season this Ruh Brest side has become famous for their low-scoring matches. Opting for a safe approach to matches, rather than exposing their comparably less talented side. They are faring well for a promoted side though, as they rest six points out of the relegation zone.
Ruh Brest need to put together an attacking gameplan if they hope to defeat Neman Grodno. Sitting back can be fine tactically, but should Ruh Brest continue to lose or draw they’ll find themselves right back in the second division. They’ve only scored once in their last four away matches, so all eyes are on manager Aleksandr Sednyov’s tactics.
What’s at Stake?
- Ruh Brest and Neman Grodno have played each other seven times. The all-time head-to-head is tied with two wins for each club and three draws.
- A win for Neman Grodno could push them as high as sixth in the league table.
- A win for Ruh Brest could push them as high as fourth in the league table.

In what has been a disappointing opening to the Belarusian Premier League season for Neman Grodno, a bright spot for the team has been the play of Armenian midfielder Gegam Kadimyan.
The midfielder is on track to outpace his highest ever goal-scoring effort in a season as he’s already collected four goals in seven matches! Usually, an outside oriented winger, Kadimyan has relished the opportunity to play as a ten and push into the box where his finishing ability has been on full display.
Considering Neman Grodno’s struggles on the defensive side in their last match, Kadimyan’s effort going forward will have to act as both threat to the opposition and outlet for his own backline.
Ruh Brest: (DEF) #5 Joao William
Brazilian center back Joao William may only be 23 years old, but the defender is has shown a veteran’s confidence at the center of his backline.
William is a powerful defender who has shown impressive pace in recovery and yet maintains the size to challenge the towering target men he’s come up against.
His consistency at the back is a massive reason why Ruh Brest has conceded so little in their seven matches so far this season. He is already one of the top center backs in the Belarusian League.
