Slavia Mozyr vs BATE Prediction & Betting tips
With 15 championships, Bate Borisov is still the most successful football team in Belarus. While the league has been going almost without exception in recent years, the multiple Champions League participant in the cup lags behind their own demands. The blue-yellow team was only able to raise the trophy three times, most recently in 2015.
In the current cup competition, the industry leader has made it to the semi-finals. There it is now in the return game to the pairing Slavia Mozyr against Bate Borissov. Although the odds of the best bookmakers for a favorite to move into the finals are extremely low, this match does bring the necessary spice.
Less than two weeks ago, the two teams faced each other in the Vysshaya League. On the second day of play, the blatant underdog surprisingly won his home game 2-1 despite a 0-1 deficit in the meantime. Against the reigning champions Dinamo Brest, Slavia managed to get a completely unexpected threesome at the weekend.
It may therefore be advisable between Slavia Mozyr and Bate Borisov to venture a tip on the home side, who will have to travel to Baryssau in three weeks for the second leg. General information about “Successful outsider betting” can be found in our linked guide article.
However, we disagree and believe that the guest, who can be assessed as being of higher quality, will set the course on Wednesday in the first leg. The first win of the season at the weekend can be seen as a breast releaser, which is why we have a Slavia Mozyr vs. Prefer Bate Borisov tip on a sovereign away win.
Did you know that Slavia Mozyr has a past in the UEFA Champions League? In fact, the orange-blacks were allowed to try their hand in the premier class in both 1997 and 2001. This was preceded by two championship titles in 1996 and 2000, both of which were refined with the triumph in the cup competition in the same game year.
Since the most successful time at the turn of the millennium, however, a lot of water has flowed along the Volga. After a temporary intermezzo in the second division, the return to the House of Lords was made before last season. In the first year it was immediately enough for an unexpectedly good eighth place, which the team of coach Mikhail Martinovich absolutely wants to top in 2020.
The start of the new season can definitely be described as successful. After a 1: 3 bankruptcy at the start of the supposedly weakest opponent in Slutsk so far, Slavia has outgrown herself on the past two weekends and first beat Bate Borisov and then the reigning champion Dinamo Brest. As fifth in the classification, Slavia is even eight ranks ahead of the upcoming semi-final opponent.
Thanks to Dnepr Mogilev, among others, that the orange-blacks made it to the semi-finals, who did not compete in the quarter-finals and thus gave the first division side a walk-through. In the first two rounds, Mozyr prevailed over NFK Minsk and Vitebsk.
In order to reach the final again for the first time since 2001, a good starting position for the second leg at the end of April is required. At home, the Martinovich team should at best come up with a win to preserve the chances of a surprise.
The shape fits and yet we believe that between Slavia Mozyr and Bate Borisov a forecast for the guest tends to be more suitable. To date, the hosts have been playing about their possibilities and – also because of the favorites’ revenge lust – will face greater problems than two weeks ago.
What is wrong with Bate Borisov? This question was definitely allowed to be asked after the first two match days. The record champions and multiple Champions League participants suffered two defeats at the start and presented themselves in amazingly bad shape.
Although the title aspirant scored his own goal against both the Energetics BGU Minsk and Slavia Mozyr, in the end there were two defeats that were hardly considered possible. No other team from the Belarusian Beletage has had to concede more goals in the first 270 minutes of play this season than the blue-yellow team, which continues to be the industry leader.
It is no wonder that coach Kirill Alshevskiy, who has been wielding the scepter in Baryssau since the end of last year, gave the top priority for the third match to be more stable in the defense. The somewhat different approach also paid off, as Bate won 1-0 at home against Rukh Brest by scoring an early lead, but was by no means spotted with fame, but indicated that the knot might have burst.
As the main argument to allude to Slavia Mozyr’s and Bate Borisov’s ratings of guest success, we list the existing quality. The squad of the 15-time title holder is worth four times as much as that of the opponent.
The individual class combined with the desire to reciprocate for an unnecessary defeat, leads us to the assumption that the three-time cup winner already laid the basis for the first final entry since 2018 in the first leg.
Borisov has hardly had any problems in the course of the competition so far. After two clear wins against Rechytsa (5: 2) and Torpedo Minsk (8: 1), Dinamo Minsk was beaten 5: 3 in the quarter-finals after the return leg. What was always striking was the fact that the blue-and-yellow competed with an open visor in the cup and were looking for their luck in the game. Exactly this could differ from the last direct duel and have a positive effect on the favorite.
