We are backing the home win
When: Thursday 16th April 2020, Kick-off 5:30
Where: The Stadyen Traktar
On Thursday evening, Dinamo Minsk will look to get their league campaign in the Belarus Premier League back on track as they host Neman Grodno at the Stadyen Traktar.
The home side has made a poor start to their league campaign, losing three of their opening four matches in the Premier League. Last time out they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Gorodeya, which was their fifth loss in their last six league games dating back to last season.
Their recent league games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches in the Premier League. However, five of their last eight league matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
Dinamo have a poor recent home record in the Belarus Premier League, winning two of their last six matches on home soil. Their recent home games in the top-flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their previous six matches on home soil.
One positive for Dinamo is that they have won six of their last seven matches against the visitors. Their last six meetings have all produced under 2.5 goals.
The visitors have experienced an inconsistent start to the new campaign, picking up five points from their last three games and remaining unbeaten. Last time out in the Belarus Premier League they drew 1-1 at home against Belshina Bobruisk. Neman Grodno’s inconsistent form has carried on from last season, as they have now won just once in their last six league outings.
Their recent Premier League matches have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six outings. Going even further back and 15 of their last 17 league games have produced under 2.5 goals.
Neman Grodno have been travel sick in recent seasons, as the visitors have now won just one of their last nine league games on their travels. They have also lost five of their last seven away matches in the Belarus Premier League.
Their recent league matches on the road have been low-scoring affairs, with seven of their last eight matches producing under 2.5 goals. The visitor’s impotency in front of goal has been a major reason for those low-scoring matches, as they have scored just two goals in their last nine away games. One positive for Dinamo is that they won this fixture last season.
Neither team could say they are in sparkling form heading into this clash. However, we are edging towards a home win in this clash, mainly due to the visitor’s poor away displays in recent seasons. The under 2.5 goals is the other bet we are backing, as the visitors struggle to score on their travels. Dinamo’s home games ten to be low-scoring too.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 8/13 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
