Dinamo Minsk vs Slutsk: Fast start expected

Kick-off: 1600, 02/05/2020

Stadium: Dinamo Stadium

Surprise leaders Slutsk will look to continue their terrific form when they face Dinamo Minsk on Saturday evening and aim to end a dreadful run at Dinamo Stadium.

Slutsk are one point clear of Isloch at the summit of the Vysshaya Liga but have never won against Dinamo on their travels in seven league and cup clashes, losing six.

After a slow start to the campaign, the Minsk outfit have won their last two games and are 3/4 to extend this sequence in our initial Dinamo Minsk vs Slutsk prediction.

A Look At Dinamo Minsk’s Betting Odds

Dinamo Minsk have salvaged a sticky start to the 2020 season with back-to-back victories after registering just one in their opening four matches.

A 2-0 home victory over Neman was followed by a convincing 3-1 triumph at Smolevichi to see them sit ninth in the table, four points behind leaders Slutsk.

Leonid Kuchuk’s side have found their goalscoring form in those two successes, scoring five of their nine this season, and come up against a team with the fourth-worst defence in the league.

Five of the last six home games for Dinamo have resulted in only one team scoring.

However, despite their visitors’ poor record in Minsk, there is reason to believe why both teams could find the net on Saturday.

The last two head-to-head clashes have seen both teams score, something which has happened in six of Slutsk’s last seven matches too.

Dinamo also have the luxury of the league’s leading goalscorer in Yevgeniy Shikavka and this points towards an entertaining end-to-end game.

A Looks At Slutsk’s Betting Odds

Perennial strugglers Slutsk have blown away their pre-season expectations to lead by a point at the top of the Vysshaya Liga.

Since promotion to Belarus’ top tier in 2014, Slutsk have produced two eighth-placed finishes in 2017 and 2018 but were locked in a relegation battle during the previous campaign.

Two wins and a draw from their final three games of the campaign ensured their safety and they have improved on that form going into 2020.

Slutsk have tasted just one defeat this season and have picked up 10 points in their last four matches, with plenty of goals to celebrate.

They are the league’s highest scorers with 12 goals from their six games and both teams have been making fast starts this term.

Four of Slutsk’s last seven matches have seen more goals in the first 45 minutes, while four of Dinamo’s six games in 2020 has also followed this trend.

It is 2/1 for the first half to outscore the second period and that is our final Dinamo Minsk vs Slutsk prediction.
