3 Wins in the last 4 Games
Gomel has been definitely performing above expectations in the current season. The team was part of the 2nd division of Belarus (Pershaya Liga) and gained promotion by finishing in 2nd place. Gomel recorded 3 wins in the last 4 games and currently is occupying the 5th position. Today, the hosts will face a tough challenge – BATE Borissov.
BATE Borissov was badly beaten (1-4) on home soil by Dinamo Batumi. Despite that BATE had won (0-1) the 1st leg and was considered the main favourite to continue to the next stage, the Belarusian champions collapsed quite unexpectedly. The situation in the domestic league is not so bright as well. The team should compensate the lead of Shakhtyor Soligorsk. The latter has been almost flawless for now.
