Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino, unbeaten in six Belarus Premier League matches, has sights set on the Europa League. Match time is 12 pm EDT.
Three times last decade, including back to back seasons in 2015-16 and 16-17, Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino made forays into the UEFA Europa League qualifying rounds.
That 2016-17 run was all the way to the third round of qualification, and came on the heels of a 2016 Belarusian Cup title.
So far in 2020, the Belazs Mans are on pace to make it back into Europe, but they may have a bigger prize in mind: a Belarus Premier League title.
Coming into the week, Torpedo-BelAZ sat just one point behind BATE Borisov in second place, and can move to 21 points Thursday with a win over a Neman Grodno side that has found winning tough in 2020.
Thes games have been tight in the past, but Grodno has struggled of late at the back. Two weeks ago, BATE Borisov scored three times; more worryingly, last week Rukh Brest, which had just two wins and three goals through eight matches, pumped four past Grodno.
Torpedo should have enough to sink Grodno here, and continue its dream start to 2020.
