Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Dinamo Minsk win and under 3.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport
Glad to make a return to home soil on Friday evening, Dinamo Minsk will host a rock-bottom Smolevichi at the Stadyen Traktar in a matchup that should see chances come at a premium.
Starting with the hosts, despite their spirited display away at European chasers Neman Grodno last time out, Minsk could only slump to a 1-0 defeat on the road and will undoubtedly be glad to make a return to the Stadyen Traktar on Friday. while Leonid Kuchuk’s men might know that the best they can muster this season is a top-half finish, Dinamo have continued to shine on home soil. Remarkably holding the second-best defensive tally in the division despite what has been overall a disappointing campaign for the Whites, they have landed back-to-back 1-0 home victories against Gorodeya and a derby day win against bitter rivals FC Minsk. In fact, collecting 10 points over just their previous four contests in front of their own supporters, Kuchuk’s sie have conceded just a single goal at the Stadyen Traktar in any of their previous six home appearances.
As for the visitors, despite showing some much-needed signs of life last month, Smolevichi have shipped back to their old ways and are still the leading contender for the drop this summer. Still sat two points adrift at the foot of the table and coming off the back of a dreadful 3-0 drumming at home against Belshina, caretaker boss Aleksey Mikhaylov finds his side in the midst of a three-match losing run in the Premier League and have failed to record a single consolation strike in any of that trio of defeats. Even more concerning for fans around the Ozyorny Stadium, now in the midst of a woeful six-match losing run on their travels, Smolevichi also hold a worrying record against Friday’s hosts. Including a 2-0 defeat the last time they made the trip to Minsk, the top-flight returners have lost all five of their meetings against the Whites.
Bet: Dinamo Minsk 5/6 to beat Smolevichi and under 3.5 goals 5/6 for Friday’s Belarusian Premier League matchup @ 888sport
