BLR vs EST Dream11 : Estonia and Belarus continue chasing an elusive win with the two sides yet to taste success in Group C
For Estonia and Belarus, time in the Euro 2020 Qualification Round is running out and running out fast. With 0 wins in between them, the two sides are placed in the trenches of Group C and rightfully, all but out of progressing through to the next round.
While both the sides have failed to register a single win till now, what is even more unsavoury is the way these two outfits have been decimated by their opponents. Both have scored just the one goal apiece with Belarus conceding 9 times when Belarus have opened their gates to be hammered 12 times, figures which manifest how easy it has been to unravel these two units.
Used as little else but teams to propel one’s goal difference, for both Estonia and Belarus, this match couldn’t come bearing more colossal ramifications. Not only is it a chance to clash heads against an equally balanced opposition but also brings for either side the immense chance to salvage something from their outing in the qualification round, perhaps each side’s best chance to amass three points.
For the hosts especially, this match is the beginning of a new soiree, one where they under new leadership. After being dismissed 8-0 by Germany in their last qualifier, the side turned to Karel Voolaid’s tutelage to help overturn their horrific form. With this being the first match the side will be playing under his management, expect there to be renewed vigour and determination in the side today to pull off a better showing.
BLR vs EST Match Prediction
Traditionally, this has been a fixture where Estonia have enjoyed the greener side of the rub. The 6 previous contests between these two sides have seen Estonia lead with 4 wins to their name while Belarus have managed to emerge winners on the two occasions.
This script should stay true to its nature with Estonia winning this clash in their home stadium. Expect this to be a match where both sides come hot out the blocks, a goal scoring thriller which Estonia just about edge with the extra goal to their name.

BLR vs EST Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With both sides bound to leave this encounter without a cleansheet, we decided to choose the better goal-keeper, someone who is going to come under a solid barrage of shots. And this sees us go for Belarus’ Aliaksandr Hutar, someone who’ll be playing his first match of the qualification process and will be looking to impress and justify his selection.
BLR vs EST Dream11 Defenders
While a cleansheet for either side looks bleak at best, if any side is going to keep one it’s going to be Estonia. They are up against a Belarus side who have scored just one goal till now and the first things their new manager would have done is to stabilise things at the back and add more disciplined to the defence.
This sees us opt for a duo from the side with Karol Mets and Artur Pikk coming into our side while from the opposition we have opted for the attack minded Dzyanis Palyakow for this clash.
BLR vs EST Dream11 Midfielders
Our reasoning behind picking out players in this facet was the same for both the sides. This is a match where the defensive gameplan will be majorly thrown out of the window as either side looks to outscore its opponent and pile on the goals today, seeing us enraptured in an incredible and extradonaire goal fest.
We have an entire trivalent come in from the visitors with us selecting Dzmitry Baha, Pavel Niakhaichyk and Igor Stasevich owing to his narrative while the two most likely players to use their tenacity and craft a goal from Estonia are picked up by us. This sees us pick out the sensational duo of Konstantin Vassiljev and Artjom Dmitrijev from the side.
BLR vs EST Dream11 Strikers
With Belarus in dire need of a specialist striker, devoid of a proper option up the field, our duo here is composed entirely of players from Estonia. Rauno Sappinen and Sergei Zenjov both come in for us with the side bound to have worked on their attacking plays during the break accorded in between their previous match and today’s encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We decided to head into today’s clash with Zenjov as our custodian in the captaincy spot while Vassiljev is the vice-captain.
