Prediction and odds for the game: Dinamo Brest (3/10) v Slavia Brest (7/1)
We are backing the over 2.5 to be scored
When: Saturday 04 April 2020, Kick-off 5:30 PM
Where: The Stadyen DASK Brestski
On Saturday evening Dinamo Brest continue their defence of the Belarus Premier League title as they welcome Slavia Mozyr to the Stadyen DASK Brestski.
The home side have made a solid if not spectacular start to their title defence in the Belarussian top-flight. The reigning champions kicked off their campaign with a 1-1 home draw against Smolevichi before a 1-0 win at Slutsk last time out.
The two league results so far this season mean that Dinamo are unbeaten in 17 league games dating back to July 2019, having recorded an impressive 13 victories.
Their recent matches in the Belarus Premier League have been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six matches.
As you would expect from the champions, they have a strong recent home record in the Premier League. In fact, they have suffered just one defeat in their previous 18 league games on home soil, while winning six of their last nine home outings. While Dinamo’s home games have not always been high-scoring, they have failed to score in just one of their last 16 league outings on home soil.
The home team has a good recent record in matches against Slavia, as they are unbeaten in six games, having won four of the last five meetings in all competitions.
The visitors have made a mixed start to their campaign in the top-flight. Slavia started the season with a 3-1 defeat at Slutsk before a 2-1 win over BATE Borisov in their last league match.
Despite the slip-up in the opening gameweek, the visitors have recorded three of their last four matches in the Belarussian top-flight. They have also scored at least two goals in each of the three victories. Their last six Premier League games have also produced at least two goals.
The Mozyr-based team have an inconsistent away record in the Premier League dating back to last season. A record of two wins in their last ten matches on their travels puts them in the category of teams who are travel-sick.
Slavia’s recent away games in the Belarussian top-flight have been relatively high-scoring, with at least two goals scored in four of their last five outings.
The visitors have won just once in their last ten visitors to Brest in all competitions. Their recent away record does not suggest that is about to change in this clash.
Dinamo Brest are tough opponents on their own patch, while Slavia Mozyr are underwhelming travellers. That is why we are backing the home win. However, the main bet we are recommending is the over 2.5 goals, as both teams recent matches have been relatively high-scoring.
Verdict: We are backing the over 2.5 goals scored at evens and/or the home win at odds of 3/10. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
