Rukh Brest v Dynamo Brest Betting Preview, May 31st, 2020

The first-ever top-flight Brest derby between these two rounds up the eleventh round of fixtures in the Belarusian Premier League, and there are not many that would have predicted Rukh being higher in the table at this point of the season.

Dynamo just hasn’t been able to replicate last year’s devastating form and could be in store for an embarrassing local derby defeat.

It looks like BetOnline has taken no notice of the current league table or of recent results in the pricing of this game, and that provides one of the potentially better value bets of the weekend. The home win odds look good, but Rukh does tend to draw a lot of its fixtures, so that may be the way to go here.

Match Preview

From being the farm team for Dynamo just a few seasons ago to comfortably competing in the top flight of Belarusian soccer, Rukh Brest continues to defy expectations and pick up some impressive results this season. A very strong defensive ethic is the main reason for that, but Rukh’s position in the table is thoroughly deserved.

After the early-season defeats to BATE and Energetik-BGU, Rukh Brest has been able to live with everyone else in the league and picked up another good point away to Slutsk last week. The mantra of “a draw will be enough” has continued to work for Aleksandr Sednyov’s team, and it will go into this local derby with confidence high.

Dynamo, on the other hand, has had a nightmare season so far as it looks to regain its crown. After losing just one game last year on the way to that league title, the inconsistency shown by the champions has been difficult to understand. There has also been a cup final defeat to BATE to add insult to injury.

Although Dynamo took BATE to the very last minute of extra time in that game, recent results have not been encouraging ahead of this one. Two losses, to BATE and Energetik-BGU, has shown that Dynamo is not at the level to challenge at the top this season, and a morale-boosting local derby win might even be too much for this team at the current time.

  • The Draw

It is incredibly tempting to back Rukh to win the Brest derby this weekend. The odds look very good, but it is important to remember that for all its success this season, there have only been three wins in ten games. The drawn games have pushed the club further up the table than expected, but winning games is still not part of the tactical approach. The draw would seem to be the safer bet.
