Belarus vs Estonia Prediction & Match Preview


Belarus vs Estonia Prediction & Match Preview



27 March 2021 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET World Cup Qual

After sharing the spoils with Honduras in a friendly, Belarus will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Estonia in the opening match of their World Cup qualifying campaign. 

Mikhail Markhel mixed the squad in Wednesday’s friendly, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Estonia. 

Keep in mind, though, that Denis Laptev misses the match through suspension.

Estonia, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-2 loss to Czech Republic. 

The Estonians continue to struggle on the international stage, and seeing that Belarus are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Mikhail Markhel’s troops. 

It has to be noted that Belarus emerged triumphant in two of the previous three meetings between the two national teams in all competitions.

Having made four changes by the 62nd minute against Honduras, Markhel may look to name the same Belarus XI.

Despite his dismissal earlier in the week, Dzyanis Laptev should line up in attack for the home side.

Haberli will almost certainly freshen up his Estonia team, introducing the likes of Sander Puri and Anier.

Marek Kaljumae could also be brought into the defence, taking the place of Tottenham Hotspur youngster Maksim Paskotsi, who made his debut against Czech Republic.
