Competition: Belarusian Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Knowing that victory this weekend could see them find a route into the European spots, a high-flying Shakhtyor will make the trip to the Stadyen Traktar on Saturday evening.
Starting with the hosts, despite taking the lead away at Vitebsk last weekend and dominating large spells of proceedings, the Whites could only pick up a point on the road and once again find themselves stuck around mid-table. Hit with back-to-back defeats against Slutsk and Dinamo Brest when opening May, there is no doubt that Leonid Kuchuk’s side will be glad to make a return to home soil on Saturday evening. Despite continuing to gain a reputation for their issues away from the Stadyen Traktar, Minsk have won three of their last four matchups in front of their own supporters, including a 1-0 win against Isloch earlier in the month. More impressive, it should also be noted that the Whites have recorded clean sheets in each of those three victories at home.
As for the visitors, putting in yet another eye-catching display last weekend and picking up a thumping victory against Belshina, the mood in Shakhtyor’s camp continues to skyrocket. With a European finish firmly at the top of their agenda, the Soligorsk outfit have won five of their last six appearances and are enjoying an unbeaten run over the past six weeks. A huge part of Shakhtyor’s rise up the table has come thanks to their stunning displays at the back. Remarkably recording five Premier League clean sheets on the bounce and conceding just a pair of goals in their last eight outings, this weekend’s guests have picked the ball out of their net just three times so far this season. With each of the last five meetings between the two sides seeing under 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing a similar outcome at the Stadyen Traktar on Saturday evening.
Bet: Under 2.5 goals at Dinamo Minsk vs Shakhtyor 4/6 for Saturday’s Belarusian Premier League showdown @ Bet 365
