FC BATE Borisov
15:45 GMT 13 June 2018
The BATE vs. Gomel match will be played on Wednesday, June 13, at the Borisov Arena, Borisov. After 10 rounds, BATE is 1st on the table with 25 points, while Gomel is 15th with only 7 points.
In their previous ten meetings, BATE won seven games, while three matches ended in a draw. Gomel defeated BATE in 2013 for the last time. In six out of those seven victories BATE kept a clean sheet against Gomel.
BATE survived a challenge from Dinamo Minsk in 2017 and they won the title because they had better goal difference than their rivals. In 2018, they want to avoid that scenario and they started the season furiously. However, in their last couple of weeks they were defeated in Cup and in the league, so Dinamo Minsk is only two points away at the moment. Against Gomel, which will probably fight against relegation this season, they will try to record a convincing victory and get back on track.
