Sports Mole previews Sunday's Belarusian Premier League clash between Torpedo-BelAZ and Rukh Brest, including predictions, form guides and head-to-head records.

Torpedo-BelAZ welcome Rukh Brest to the Torpedo Stadium on Sunday afternoon aiming to maintain their positive start to the Belarusian Premier League season.

Three wins and a draw from their first five matches has left Torpedo third in the table, six places and three points better off than opponents Brest.

Match preview

Torpedo are level with leaders Slutsk heading into the sixth round of matches following last week's goalless draw with BATE Borisov.

That will still be considered a positive result for Yuri Puntus against a heavyweight team, ensuring that his side remain very much in the mix at the top end of the division.

Dinamo Minsk are the only team to take all three points off Torpedo this term, but it is two wins from two on home soil for Puntus's charges.

Returning from their trip to Zhodino with a share of the spoils will be a tough task for Brest, then, although the visitors can be pleased with their points return thus far.

Aleksandr Sednyov's side have taken seven points from 15 since earning back-to-back promotions to secure a place in the top flight for the first time in their history.

Beating Dinamo Minsk 1-0 away from home in their opener would only have heightened expectations, but they were given a reality check with successive losses to Energetik-BGU and BATE.

They have since bounced back with a draw at Slavia Mozyr and victory at home to Minsk, though, leaving them in a healthy position just outside the top half of the division.

Brest have a mixed record on their travels since earning promotion, with a win, draw and defeat to their name against teams positioned 11th, eighth and seventh.

Neither Torpedo nor Brest are exactly prolific in front of goal, finding the back of the net a combined six times between them in 10 matches.

In fact, the visitors have yet to score more than once in a single match, though nor have they conceded more than once.

Torpedo have fired blanks in two of their last three matches, meanwhile, suggesting that Sunday's clash could well be a low-scoring affair.

Head To Head

Given that Rukh Brest were only formed four years ago and are in their debut campaign as a Belarusian top-flight club, it is unsurprising that they have not faced Torpedo-BelAZ in a competitive match.

This will therefore mark the first time that the sides have met in league and cup competition.

We say: Torpedo-BelAZ 1-0 Rukh Brest

Torpedo have made a good start to the season and will be looking to keep pace with the two sides above them. Rukh can also be happy with their points return so far, and two games without defeat suggests that this will not be an easy one for the hosts.
