Energetik-BGU – BATE : Preview & Prediction
1st day of Belarusian championship!
Promoted at the end of the 2018 season, the Energetik-BDU Minsk finished 12th in the first division in 2019. This season the club hopes to achieve the same season and to maintain itself. The championship started strong for them, with the reception of Bate Borisov, the most powerful club in the championship and the most recognized in Europe. Eliminated in the Belarusian Cup eighths last August, Minsk was therefore exempt from the round-robin matches of the quarter-finals (which were played between 9 and 15 March) and therefore had to settle for friendly matches.
Refounded 23 years ago, the Bate Borisov has already won 15 first division titles. Reigning champion since 2006 (13 consecutive times), the Belarusian club had their hair cut to the post in 2019 and finished second, 5 points behind the new champion Dinamo Brest. The Bate Borisov intends to recover his throne this year and achieve a new series in order to continue his domination of his championship. The season got off to a good start for Borisov, qualifying for the Cup semi-final after his victories against Dynamo Minsk (5-3 in the final), including the last 3-2 last Saturday.
Last year, Minsk was 14th (out of 16) in the home championship with 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in 15 games!
Minsk was also the second worst defense with 28 goals conceded, just ahead of the Torpedo-SKA and its 32 goals conceded.
BATE Borisov was second in the Belarusian championship last year, with 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in 15 games.
Borisov also had the second best away attack, with 27 goals scored, just behind his opponent of the day and 28 goals.
BATE was also the second best defense with 11 goals conceded (just behind Dinamo Brest and Shakhtyor, 10 goals conceded each).
Last year the Bate won 0-4 in Minsk. Obviously, each season is not the same and each match is different. But Bate Borisov remains a size in his championship, that he will want to start his season perfectly by taking the 3 points. Bate Borisov wins by at least 2 goals!
