• Both teams have scored in four of Vitebsk’s last six matches.
  • Both teams have scored in three of BATE’s last six matches.
  • BATE have won their last eight matches in all competitions.

BATE extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to ten matches following the narrow 1-0 home win over Isloch last weekend, a result that keeps the club in the top spot heading into Sunday’s clash. Vitebsk sit in mid-table after a creditable 3-3 draw away at second-placed Energetyk, but Sunday’s hosts are now without a win in their last six league games.

The visitors have secured four wins and one draw from their last five matches against Vitebsk and the current league positioning of the two clubs suggests that another win looks like for BATE this weekend. Three of the last five encounters between the two clubs, including a friendly back in January, have been settled via the odd goal in BATE’s favour and we’re expecting another close game between the pair on Sunday.

Both teams have scored in four of Vitebsk’s last six matches while three of BATE’s last six games have also seen both teams score. 67% of the visitors’ away games in the Belarus Premier League have seen both teams score and 83% have produced over 2.5 goals, so you can see why we have backed a 2-1 away win this weekend.

BATE score an average of 2.5 goals per away game and concede an average of 1.50 goals, which ties in perfectly with our final scoreline prediction. The visitors are in top form right now and have scored in all of their away games but have only kept clean sheets in a third of those matches, so a bet on both teams to score makes sense this Sunday.
