BetGold offers betting tips top predictions for the big matches, as this is the place to participate in the Belarus Premier League action.
Belarus Premier League Background
The Premier League is a relatively new competition, only being introduced after the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. The first official season in Belarus was in 1992, and since then the league has had a variety of participating teams; as many as 17 in the 1992/93 season, and as low as 11 in 2012. As of 2016, the league consists of 16 sides.
The worst two teams are automatically relegated down to the Belarus First League, while a third team has to take part in a relegation play-off. This is always exciting to watch, with intriguing odds on teams to either stay up or go down.
The competition gained a lot of interest in March of 2020, as it was one of the few football leagues still running, despite the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected nearly every other league in world football. Clubs who participated have even started setting up English pages on their website, to encourage more readers and new fans.
Belarus Premier League Top Team Is BATE Borisov
The Premier League has historically been dominated by one side, BATE Borisov. Known to football fans as the only Belarussian side to have qualified for the Champions League, most recently in 2015/16 season where they have faced a group of death; Barcelona, Roma and Bayer Leverkusen.
Despite the odds being heavily stacked against them, they won five points in the group, beating Roma 3-2 at home and then drawing with Leverkusen and the Italian side in Rome. Domestically they have won 15 titles, including 13 consecutive league trophies. They are undoubtedly a favorite with people betting online, and are always worth placing bets on in the Belarus Premier League.
Other Belarusian Teams To Watch
BATE are not the current champion however; in the most recent season Dynamo Brest defied the odds and won their first title. In their 30 league games they won a mighty impressive 23 of them. While they may have conceded more goals that BATE, crucially Dynamo only lost one game, that gave them a five point cushion at the end of the season. While they became a team to watch for online betters last season, they have not continued their good form into this campaign; at the time of writing, they currently sit in 10th having only won three of their seven games.
Other top sides in the division include Dinamo Minsk, who have seven league titles, and FK Slutsk, who are currently leading the Belarus Premier League on 16 points. It will be worth any online betting fan’s time to monitor the odds for these teams as the league progresses.
