Early Belarus leader Energetik BGU has chance to win first four matches of new campaign

OK, show of hands, who had Energetik BGU with a chance to lead the Belarus Premier League with four wins from four in the new season?

If you did, you joined me and one other guy from Minsk; just kidding, no one thought that.

But here the Students are, a team that finished 12th last season and won just eight of their 30 league matches (8-9-13; that is wins, draws, losses, not like it is always written here), have a chance Saturday to move to 4-0 on the season if they can beat Torpedo BelAZ Zhodino on the road.

Both times the teams played last season had over 2.5 goals (2-1 BGU, 3-3 draw). This is a tough contest to call, since BelAZ Zhodino comes in with two wins, but I expect BGU to stay unbeaten here.
