Dinamo Brest vs Slavia Mozyr: Champions to win open contest

Kick-off: 1730, 04/04/2020

Stadium: Stadyen DASK Brestski

Dinamo Brest have made a solid start to the defence of their Vysshaya Liga title and are worthy favourites to see off Slavia Mozyr at Stadyen DASK Brestski.

However, the visitors are coming off a fine win over BATE Borisov, so can be expected to play their part in an entertaining encounter.

We like 7/5 for both teams to score as our initial Dinamo Brest vs Slavia Mozyr prediction.

A Look At Dinamo Brest’s Betting Odds

Dinamo ended BATE’s 14-year Vysshaya Liga dominance when finishing five points clear of that side at the top of the table last term.

They lost just one game all season and were prolific scorers on home turf, netting 44 times in 15 outings at this venue.

Having beaten Shakhtyor 2-0 in the Belarus Super Cup, Brest were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Smolevichi in front of their own fans in the first round of league fixtures.

However, Artem Milevskiy’s 19th-minute strike proved enough to pick up maximum points in Slutsk and get them back on track.

That victory should allow Sergey Kovalchuk to now adopt a more positive approach in this contest.

The champions prevailed 4-2 when these teams last met in August, so 6/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game appeals again from the Dinamo Brest vs Slavia Mozyr odds.

A Look At Slavia Mozyr’s Betting Odds

Slavia finished a solid eighth last season and actually claimed just over half of their 37 points on the road.

Closing with three wins in four matches meant they could prepare for this campaign with a degree of optimism.

They kicked off with a 3-1 defeat at FC Slutsk, despite going ahead through an Andrei Chukhlei penalty on the half-hour mark.

Last Saturday’s 2-1 home win over perennial powerhouses BATE was a cracking effort, though, with Nikita Melnikov’s double helping them to come from behind.

Russian forward Melnikov only scored three times all last season, so the progressive 23-year-old looks a player to watch out for this year.

The feeling is that Slavia will have their moments here, before ultimately proving game but outgunned.

Let’s add 14/5 for a home win and both teams to score to our Dinamo Brest vs Slavia Mozyr betting tips, as that wager would have paid off four times in their last five meetings.
