Prediction and odds for the game: Dinamo Minsk (4/7) v Slutsk (9/2)
We are back over 2.5 goals at evens
When: Saturday 2nd May 2020, Kick-off 4 PM
Where: The Stadyen Traktar
On Saturday afternoon, Dinamo Minsk host Slutsk at the Stadyen Traktar in the Belarus Premier League.
The home sides recent league form has picked up after a poor start to the league campaign. A 3-1 victory at Smolevichi not only means they have recorded back-to-back wins but also won three of their last four matches in the Premier League. The game also saw Dinamo score at least two goals for the third time in four league matches. Despite the home sides efforts in front of goal, three of Dinamo’s last four league games have produced under 2.5 goals.
The team from the capital have recorded two straight home victories in the Premier League. However, they have also won just three of their last seven league matches on home soil. Their recent home Premier League matches have not exactly been goal fests either, as five of their last seven games on home soil have produced under 2.5 goals.
Dinamo Minsk have a good recent record against the visitors, as they have won ten of the last 15 meetings between the pair. They have also suffered just two defeats in the process.
The visitors are currently top of the Premier League table after a solid start to their campaign, picking up 13 points from their opening six matches in the top-flight. A 3-2 win over Belshina Bobruisk means that Slutsk have won four of their six league outings this season. They have also lost just once in their last nine league matches dating back to last season.
Their recent good form has mainly been down to vibrant attacking displays, as the visitors have scored at least twice in all four of their league games in season 2020. Both teams have also scored in six of their last seven matches in the Premier League.
Slutsk have been impressive on the road of late in the Belarus top-flight, winning their last three matches on their travels. Last time out away from home, the visitors recorded a 2-1 win at Shakhter Soligorsk. The game was another high-scoring away match for Slutsk, as four of their last five matches on their travels had produced over 2.5 goals. A big factor in that high number of goals is the fact that the visitors have scored at least twice in four of their last five away games in the top-flight.
This one is difficult to judge, as both teams are in good form. We are going to side with a home win, as Dinamo are something of a bogey team for Slutsk. We are also backing the over 2.5 goals, as both teams are a big threat going forward.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 4/7 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at evens. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
