We move onto the seventh round of fixtures in the Belarus Premier League this weekend and there is a big contest at the Borisov Arena on Sunday as BATE play host to Neman Grodno.
BATE head into this fixture as the firm 3/8 favourites in the betting to pick up the win while Grodno, who have participated in Belarus' top flight since 1992, are massive odds of 17/2 to claim the spoils, with the draw a 7/2 chance.
Looking at the form books, it is easy to see why Sunday's hosts are heavily fancied to pick up all three points as they go into the game on a four-game unbeaten run in all competitions - winning three and drawing one.
After losing their first two league games of the campaign, BATE have won three and drawn one of their next four top-flight matches, scoring seven goals and keeping clean sheets in all of those.
Alyaksey Baha's men recorded a 2-0 victory at home to Slavia in the cup on Wednesday, overturning the 1-0 deficit from the first leg to advance to the final, and the 15-time league champions are really hitting their stride.
Grodno did defeat Energetyk 3-0 at home last time out, ending a run of three games without a win, but they have lacked consistency and have failed to rack up back-to-back league wins since October 2019.
Igor Kovalevich's side have also struggled on the road, winning just one of their last 10 away games, and they have not beaten BATE in the past 16 meetings in all competitions - losing 14 and drawing just twice.
Defender Aleksandar Filipovic, who has been with BATE since 2018, returned from injury on the bench in the last league game against Gorodeya and he is contention to feature on Sunday.
Alshevskiy has a full-strength side at his disposal and he may decide to reinstall Icelandic midfielder Willum Willumsson to the starting XI, having dropped him to the bench for the midweek cup win.
For Grodno, captain Aleksey Legchilin returned to the starting side in midfield after playing the first three matches in defence and the skipper should retain his place, with Giorgi Kantaria and Danijel Stojkovic partnering each other at the back.
Attacking midfielder Zoran Marusic did get some minutes when coming off the bench against Energetyk last time and his impressive cameo has put him in contention for a place in the first 11.
However, midfielder Maksim Yablonski has not featured this season as he recovers from a knee injury and this weekend's clash comes too soon for him.
BATE to win to nil - 11/10 - BET NOW
BATE appear to be hitting the right groove right now and it is hard to look past a side that has lost just one of their last 22 home matches across all competitions.
The Belarus giants have been rock-solid at the back after that shaky start to the campaign and they are also starting to find the back of the net at the other end with regularity.
Grodno have only scored two goals from their last 10 away league games while conceding 14 times during that run, and it will be extremely difficult for them to come away with a positive result.
