Know your Belarusian football: Statistics for every Belarusian Premier League match this weekend

A general view of the Borisov-Arena

The only footballing action you'll be able to find this weekend comes from Belarus with their Premier League still going ahead as scheduled.

The top domestic leagues are on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, with sport across the board being stopped for the foreseeable future.

However, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has refused to cancel anything meaning that their top football league continues.

The league sees the winner qualify for the Champions League first qualifying round, while the two who finish below enter the Europa League first qualifying round.

The bottom two are relegated and the team who finishes in 14th competes in a relegation play-off to try and keep their spot in the division.

Here, the team from Opta put together the main statistics for every game.
