Prediction and odds for the game: Dinamo Brest (11/10) v Shakhter Soligorsk (12/5)
We are backing the draw
When: Saturday 25th April 2020, Kick-off 5 PM
Where: The Stadyen DASK Brestski
On Saturday evening, Dinamo Brest host Shakhter Soligorsk, as the home side look to get to their challenge to retain the league title back on track in the Belarus Premier League.
The reigning champions have kicked off the new league campaign in an unconvincing manner. In fact, the home side has won just two of their first five league games after a 1-0 defeat at Vitebsk last time out in the top-flight. However, due to the congested nature of the table, they are just three points off top spot.
Their league games this season have been tight affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five matches so far. However, this is not a new trend, as three of their last four games of last season had produced under 2.5 goals.
The best word to use Dinamo’s home form in the Premier League this season is ‘inconsistent’, as they have won one, drawn one and lost one of their first three home league matches. One positive for the champions is that they have scored in their previous 15 home games in the Belarussian top-flight.
The visitors have endured an inconsistent start to their Premier League campaign, picking up just one victory in their opening five matches. They have picked up just five points in as many games. A 2-1 home defeat against Slutsk last time out means they are unbeaten in three league games.
Shakhter’s early games this season have been low-scoring, as four of their five matches have produced under 2.5 goals. The low-scoring trend continued from the end of last season, as six of their last seven league games have produced under 2.5 goals.
Shakhter have a poor recent away record in the Belarus Premier League, winning two of their last eight matches on their travels, although they have also lost just two of those eight games. The visitor’s recent away games in the Belarus top-flight have been low-scoring, as eight of their last nine matches have produced under 2.5 goals. Shakhter are unbeaten in five visits to Dinamo Brest. However, four of those away games finished all square.
The recent meetings between these two teams have been tight, as six of the last eight meetings between the pair have finished in draws. We are backing the game to finish all square in this one too. Both teams’ recent matches have been low-scoring, so we are backing under 2.5 goals scored too.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 12/5 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 3/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
