Prediction and odds for the game: Belshina Bobruisk (9/2) v Dinamo Brest (1/2)
When: Sunday 03rd April 2020, Kick-off 12 PM
Where: The Stadyen Spartak
On Sunday afternoon, Belshina Bobruisk host Dinamo Brest at the Stadyen Spartak, as both teams look to get their seasons back on track in the Belarus Premier League.
The home team have made a woeful start to their new league campaign in the Belarus top-flight. They have yet to win any of their six league games this season, having suffered four defeats in the process. Last time out, they suffered a 3-2 defeat at Slutsk. The game broke a run of low-scoring games in the top-flight for Belshina, as their previous four matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
The poor start to the Premier League campaign means that Belshina are bottom of the league table, having picked up just two points this season.
Belshina have struggled for form on home soil in both their recent spells in the Premier League, as they have now failed to win in nine league games on home soil dating back to their last spell in the top-flight in August 2016. They have also lost two of their last three home games in the league this season.
The reigning champions have made an underwhelming start to their title defence in the Belarus top-flight. A 2-0 home defeat by Shakhter Soligorsk last time out means that Dinamo have now lost three of their last four matches on home soil, including their last two league outings.
Their matches in the league this season have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six matches.
Despite their unconvincing start to their league campaign, Dinamo still have a solid away record in the Premier League. A 1-0 defeat at Vitebsk in their last away match ended a 17-game unbeaten run for Dinamo on their travels in the Belarus top-flight. They have won 14 of the unbeaten games too.
Dinamo’s recent away matches in the Belarus top-flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches on their travels. Their recent away games may well have been low-scoring, but the defeat against Vitebsk also saw Dinamo fail to score for the first time in ten away matches in the Premier League.
Regardless of their unconvincing recent league form, we are backing the champions to record an away win. They are usually strong on their travels, while Belshina are once again struggling to deal with life in the Belarussian top-flight. We are also taking a punt on the over 2.5 goals scored, as four of the last five meetings between these two teams have been high-scoring affairs.
Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 1/2 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 21/20 (all odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
