League leaders take generous defense to Minsk

The last match of the afternoon in the Belarus Premier League also takes place in the city of Minsk. While FC Minsk opened the party at 15.00 it is up to FC Dinamo Minsk to close it out. They are taking on the form side of the league when FK Slutsk comes calling at the Stadyen Dynama.

FK Slutsk finished just four points above the relegation places last season but have started 2020 with a bang. One could argue that they have taken full advantage of having played four of their opening six matches at home. However, the four points they have dropped so far were dropped at home with both away matches providing maximum points.

Unlike most of the sides in the Belarus Premier League, the success has been thanks to a very attacking style. They have scored 12 goals or an average of two goals per game in the first six rounds. Three more goals than second-best in the league at this point. Quite a development from last year where they did not even manage a goal a game, scoring just 29 the whole season.

Amazingly they have also conceded 8 goals, with only three teams have allowed more goals against them. Are you looking for entertainment in the league, look no further than FK Slutsk! Dinamo Minsk also walks into this game on the back of a couple of wins. It has been hit or misses so far with three wins and three defeats. The first two rounds left them empty-handed, while their first win of the season came in round three. Another defeat followed before they downed Neman Grodno 2-0 at home.

Last weekend they totally hammered Smolevichy-STI away from home. Courtesy of two goals from Evgeni Shikavka they took a 3-0 lead before allowing the home side a consolation-goal. His tally already stands at four goals. Against a generous defence he might be a player to keep an eye on in the “to score” market.

Compared to how well they have fared so far, the prices on FK Slutsk look extremely generous. It is hard to overlook the fact though that they have lost their last four away games to Dinamo Minsk. And four of the last seven while losing none. Instead, we aim for both sides to score. It would have paid out in five of six matches this season and in the last two meetings between them.
