It’s gameweek seven of the Belarusian Premier League, with a full eight-match fixture list raring to go.
The top five are split by just three points, and we could see BATE continue their revival, with the table shifting all weekend as a result.
There’s one game on Friday, three on Saturday and a quartet of matches on Sunday and we’re picking out some of the most hotly contested duels…
Dinamo Minsk v Slutsk (16:00 Saturday)
The final match on Saturday perhaps has the biggest repercussions at the top of the table.
Early leaders Slutsk are 19/5 to win their third away game of the season. Having scored 12 goals already this term, you can get an away win with Over 3.5 goals is at 20/1.
But having won two on the spin themselves, Dinamo Minsk are 8/13 for victory. They also have the league’s top scorer Evgeni Shikavka in their ranks. If you fancy an even match up, the draw is at 12/5.
BATE v Neman Grodno (16:00 Sunday)
After a slow start, BATE Borisov have picked up the pace and are unbeaten in their last four games.
They’re a short 4/11 to pick up their fourth win in fives games against mid-table Neman Grodno withBoth Teams to Score in a home win at 14/5.
But Neman will look to BATE’s dodgy early season form for inspiration and are 15/2 to cause an upset. The visitors knocked three goals past Energetyk-BGU last time out, so we’ve got Over 3.5 goals at 5/2.

Saturday afternoon opens with eighth-placed Minsk (3/2) entertaining third place Torpedo-Belaz.
The visitors would go top with a win at 7/4 – until Slutsk play later in the day. But after two draws on the spin for Torpedo, you can get 15/8 for a stalemate.
Second placed Isloch round off the weekend with a trip to Shakhter Soligorsk at 18:00. After their big win over fellow European hopefuls Vitebsk last week, Isloch are 15/4 to win the game.
