Right now, it’s just the goal difference that separates the two sides as there on level terms with seven points, though Vitebsk is at 7th, while Dinamo Brest is a spot above at 6th.
Vitebsk is on the back of a 1-1 draw to FC Slutsk, while Dinamo made a comeback against Isloch by winning 3-1 in the last game. Vitebsk were on the road of winning their third win in the ongoing campaign, but the home team equalized in the dying moments which caused both teams to share the spoils.

Head-coach Sergey Kovalchuk will be hoping his side turns it around and gets back to their brilliant best.
Date- Saturday, April 18
Kick-Off- 8:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Vitebsk Central Stadium
Vitebsk will be pleased with their respective start to the new campaign after picking up a point in the last game to Slutsk. Vitebsk got the lead at the half-hour mark courtesy Ion Nicolaescu in spite of sustaining pressure early on. However, the home side leveled it up in the final few minutes. That being said Vitebsk is likely to persist with a similar starting lineup.
Dinamo Brest was able to build on momentum from the first leg of the semi final in the cup as they beat Isloch comprehensively last weekend. Dinamo Brest did concede the first goal at the 40th minute, but Gabriel Kiki soon got the equalizer at the half-time mark. Artem Milevskiy then went on to score for Dinamo after the 75th minute, before Pavel Savistkiy sealed the deal through a penalty at stoppage time. Brest has lost just the one game in all competitions so far and will be looking to notch another win. Artem Bykov was withdrawn before half time in the last game and is in to doubt to start here.
VIT (Expected Playing 11)- A Soroko; D Chalov, A Gurenko, M Kalenchuk, E Klopotskiy, A Matveenko, P Nazarenko, I Nicolaescu, A Skitov, S Volkov, Waderson
DYB (Expected Playing 11)- Pavel Pavlyuchenko (GK), Oleg Veretilo, Oleksandr Noyok, Gaby Kiki, Maksim Vitus, Aleksandr Pavlovets, Artem Milevskiy, Dzyanis Laptsev, Syarhey Kislyak, Pavel Savitski, Elis Bakaj
Artem Milevskiy can be vital in the forward line for Dinamo Brest. The 35-year-old has two goals from four games. In the previous season the centre-forward bagged 12 goals and four assists from 26 games. That being said, Milevskiy’s presence in the Dream11 Match Prediction side could earn the user some valuable points.
I Nicolaescu has a goal from the last three games for Vitebsk and can pack a punch up front for his side.
Pavel Savitskiy has been one of the standouts for Dinamo Brest over the last couple of years. Savitskiy has a goal from the last four appearances in the ongoing campaign. In the previous two editions the midfielder got 23 goals under his belt and is also an adequate distributor of the ball. Having Savitskiy in the today match prediction side could earn the user a decent amount of points.
Dinamo Brest will be looking to extend their winning run once they take on Vitebsk on Saturday.
