Our prediction for this Belarus Premier League match:
BATE Borisov will be looking to extend their winning run to four games in all competitions when they take on Smolevichy-STI at Stadion Ozernyj on Matchday 8. BATE did not make a flying start to the season, but the team quickly got back on course, and, as a result, they are once again seen as No. 1 favourites to lift the trophy. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Bojan Dubajic, who found the net in the 3-1 win over Neman Grodno.
Smolevichy-STI, on the other hand, are still eyeing their first win of the season. The hosts failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Energetyk-BGU, and we do not believe that they are capable of making life difficult for the title-chasing club. In their last meeting in the Belarus Premier League BATE recorded a 3-2 win over Smolevichy.
