Smolevichi - Slutsk
Belarus Vysshaya Liga
Within the 15th round of the first Belarusian league, a duel between Smolevichi and Slutsk awaits us.
Smolevichi is in the penultimate, 15th position with 7 points and only one victory with 4 draws and as many as 8 defeats. They beat only Gorodeja, which is also not of excessive quality.
Slutsk is in the tenth position with 18 points. They started the season great but stopped at one point and it is not clear to me what happened to them. It is a team that plays very nice football and creates a lot of chances but the ball simply will not score so we come to the conclusion that 7 rounds are without a win. If we look at the last couple of matches we see that they are almost everywhere equal in terms of statistics if not better. Let s say against Neman they had almost the same possession of the ball, 14 shots on goal and even 6 in Against Gorodeja they had better possession of the ball 13 shots on goal and 5 of them in the frame. Against Zhodina they almost dominated the game, they had possession on their side, 28 shots on goal, of which 8 in the frame, but the game ended 1: 1 .Obviously they have a big problem with the realization of opportunities, but the most important thing is that they create chances and the goals will surely come as the season progresses.
For me, Slutsk is the alpha and omega in relation to Smolevichi, who has provided very skinny games from the start, and I don t see how they could emerge as winners in this match.
