The Belarusian Premier League is now the only top division in Europe still playing so it's keeping many football fans across the continent entertained in these uncertain and worrying times. 

BATE Borisov who lost last week were expected to win at Slavia Mozyr on Saturday. Slavia had lost 3-1 at Slutsk in week one. Icelandic full international Willum Willumsson opened the scoring for BATE on 10 minutes only for Nikita Melnikov to score twice for the home side to record a 2-1 victory. 


Reigning champion's Dynamo Brest recorded a 0-1 win at Slutsk with their goal coming from Artem Milevskiy who is best known for his time with Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine. The striker, now 35, made 50 appearances for the Ukrainian national team but was actually born in Belarus and played for their under 16 side before playing for Ukraine. 

Minsk FC won the 'Minsk Derby' in a five goal thriller - they were 3-0 up with Dynamo getting two goals back to make the final score 3-2. 

Isloch Minsk won their second game in row 1-0 with Momo Yansane on the score-sheet once again. The 22 year old was born in the Republic of Guinea and has represented his home country at under 20 level - He scored regularly for Isloch last season and is a fan favorite with their small number of loyal supporters - one fan even plays an accordion throughout their games.

Next weekend's fixtures are below which include Engergtik BGU v FC Minsk who are two of he four teams with two wins in a row so far and it's another Minsk Derby as both are based in the Capital. 

One statistic which makes interesting reading in that Dynamo Minsk have the most shots on target at 21 (2 goals) but have two defeats so far with Torpedo Zhodino on 6 shots on target (2 goals) and two wins so far - they play each other on Friday evening at 5pm British time. Surely Dynamo Minsk should get their first win of the season in this one?
