In a clash of the two bottom sides in the Belarusian Vysshaya Liga, FC Minsk will face Shakter Soligorks for gameweek 11 at Stadion Torpedo on Thursday.

FK Minsk vs Shakhter Soligorsk Betting Tips: X2 (DOUBLE CHANCE)

Following their respectable ninth-placed finish last season, FC Minsk have endured a terrible start to the new Vysshaya Liga campaign, as they open gameweek 11 still searching for their first victory, having managed to add a paltry three points to their tally to date.

The club's management are on the verge of bursting with anger, and it seems coach Artym Chelyadinsky has very little time to convince them otherwise, especially after suffering a 0-3 hammering by mid-table Isloch away last week to be condemned to a seventh loss this season.

Currently second from bottom, the capital club might not be overly concerned with their current predicament, given that they went through a similar scenario during the 2018-19 campaign, when they failed to register a win in their opening 10 top-flight contests but ultimately climbed to a solid ninth place.

That season, it took FC Minsk exactly eleven matches to notch their first win, but this term, the wait for a taste of success might drag on, given that they haven't managed to defeat their Thursday rivals in any of their last five H2H clashes across all competitions (D2 L3).

On their end, Shakhter Soligorsk are grappling with tough times right now as, after narrowly avoiding relegation last term by finishing just above the drop zone, they will also have to forgo European football this season and focus on salvaging their campaign.

The Belarusian Football Federation has severely punished the Miners for match-fixing, stripping them of their 2021-22 title and docking them a crippling 20 points this season, which has left the three-time champions languishing at the bottom of the division with -15 points on the board.

Since they found themselves 1-0 up against Vitebsk on the opening weekend of the season, thanks to Kovalevich's strike, Stanislav Suvorov's men haven't tasted victory in any of their subsequent seven matches, managing to scrape together just two points during that dismal run.

Last time out, Shakhter Soligorsk fought hard to earn a point in a dramatic 2-2 stalemate to end a horrific six-game losing streak, although they are well aware that they have a big mountain to climb if they want to retain their top-flight status.

Considering both sides are struggling to produce results and their motivation has plummeted, we can envision that settling for a draw at this point would satisfy them both, much like their last head-to-head meeting when this pair played out a lifeless goalless draw 0-0 at the Torpedo Stadium.

FK Minsk team news

The only fortunate circumstance for FK Minsk is that they won't have any concerns regarding unavailable players, but several of them are at risk of receiving a one-match suspension.

Following their dismal 0-3 defeat against Isloch in the previous outing, under-pressure Artyom Chelyadinsky will be compelled to make some alterations to the starting eleven.

Shakhter Soligorsk team news

Much like their Thursday counterpart, Shakhter Soligorsk enters matchday eleven with nearly a clean bill of health, although Maksim Kovalevich remains doubtful after missing four consecutive matches.

Otherwise, manager Stanislav Suvorov is likely to stick with the same XI he named in the 2-2 draw against Soligorsk last time out, although Kaplenko could replace Yankovski in the defensive quartet.
