Dinamo Minsk vs FK Slutsk
Belarus Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 May 2020
Kick-off: 2:00 pm UK/3:00 pm CET
Venue: Dinamo Stadium, Minsk.
Having found success after six fixtures completed in the Belarus Premier League, Slutsk will be looking to extend their lead at the top when they visit Dinamo Minsk this weekend.
Slutsk finished just four points outside of the relegation zone in the 2018/2019 BPL season, so it’s quite a surprise to fans that they’ve managed to lose just once in their first six fixtures. The wins have also been more than justifiable as Slutsk have also bagged the most goals this season with 12.
- Dinamo Minsk current form: 6 matches – 3 wins – 3 losses – 13 points.
- Slutsk current form: 6 matches – 4 wins – 1 loss – 1 draw – 9 points.
Dinamo Minsk vs. FK Slutsk Prediction
History favours Dinamo Minsk to walk away with a result this weekend, Slutsk has never beaten Dinamo Minsk whilst visiting their ground and Dinamo’s home record remains in-tact for this season, thus far. With that said, it hasn’t been easy to keep their lead. The cracks in defence are showing, without a single clean sheet to their record.
The start of the season was a rough patch for the hosts, losing their two opening games against a newly promoted team and their arch-rivals were more than a tough pill to swallow. But where there’s a will, there’s a way and the bounce back on home turf began. A 3-1 thrashing over Smolevichi last weekend made it three wins from their previous four, a significant improvement from the beginning of the campaign.
As mentioned prior, Slutsk is surprising holding onto the #1 position of BPL, but they’ve been very close to slipping up on multiple occasions, the cracks are starting to show. Their attack force won’t remain on top form forever, and their defence is going to eventually cost them.

Dinamo Minsk vs. Slutsk Betting advice
As mentioned prior, Slutsk is surprising holding onto the #1 position of BPL, but they’ve been very close to slipping up on multiple occasions, the cracks are starting to show and Dinamo Minsk will be more than prepared to take advantage of Slutsk’s defensive issues. Fingers can also point to Dinamo, who’ve only kept two clean-sheets themselves.
Both teams have scored in 5 of Slutsk’s previous six fixtures this season, and when we take a glance at the offensive/defensive record for both teams, putting your money behind the ‘both teams to score’ market wouldn’t be a bad idea.
The proposition betting market can offer some hidden value; I’d usually look towards a sportsbook such as BetOnline when using prop-bet markets. Strictly because of the value and navigational advantages offered.
With that said, I do still expect the hosts to keep their winning record running. They’ve won six of the previous seven encounters and five inside of domestic competition. A similar score to their previous encounter last September is a correct score I’m in favour of.
