Slutsk vs. Energetik-BGU Betting Preview – Belarusian Premier League

The surprise league leaders welcome Energetik-BGU to town this Friday to kick off round eight in the Belarusian Premier League. Slutsk has continued to pick up points to top the table going into May.

Energetik-BGU started the season off in great form itself before losing three in a row. But the university team got back to winning ways last week, so this should be an enthralling encounter.

Read on for my Slutsk vs. Energetik-BGU prediction and betting pick.

Latest Slutsk vs. Energetik-BGU Odds

Slutsk to Win+117
The Draw+241
Energetik-BGU to Win+230

Slutsk has still only lost one game all season, but the BetOnline sportsbook, like many, seems to think that its time at the top must come to an end soon. The home side is the favorite to win this one, but the odds are close considering recent results. The price for a draw might be of some interest here.

Match Preview

Slutsk defied the odds again last weekend and beat former powerhouse Dinamo Minsk in the capital. A missed penalty from the hosts helped Slutsk to the victory, but the simple truth is that it completely deserved the points that took it back to the top after Torpedo had momentarily reached the summit earlier in the day.

Although Slutsk remains the team to beat, there must be some questions over the caliber of opponent so far. The one loss came against champions Dynamo Brest, and BATE is up next. That being said, Slutsk has performed admirably so far and definitely has the confidence to take on anyone right now. Energetik-BGU will be in for a tough afternoon.

But the students finally won again last week as they overcame Smolevichi away from home. A stoppage time penalty gave the scoreline a more respectable look at 2-0, but Energetik-BGU was never really in trouble. That was the first victory in four attempts and took the club back up to fourth in the table.

A win here would put Energetik-BGU just a point behind Slutsk, but that might be a tall order given the way the table-toppers have performed this season. Slutsk leads the way in both points and goals, although it has conceded more than most at the top of the table. That suggests that this could be an entertaining game.

Slutsk vs. Energetik-BGU Pick

  • Slutsk to Win

This could be an incredibly close game with plenty of goals. But Slutsk should just about be able to come out winners and then await the rest of the weekend’s results to see whether it has extended its lead at the top. The resurgence of BATE, in particular, means that every point will be precious for Slutsk from now on.
