Team Analysis

After winning the top seed for the playoffs, Yunost Minsk was always going to be the favorite for the title. The team closed the first two series comfortably to reach the title fight full of confidence and momentum.

And yet, Shakhter’s mood was excellent after a dramatic win over the second seed Neman Grodno in the semifinals. That helped the side win one of the opening away games and effectively steal the home advantage before the return to Soligorsk.

That’s when the crucial third game happened, and Yunost won after extra-time. I think that this defeat broke Shakhter because the team suffered a heavy 3-0 loss in the next match.Yunost Minsk took complete control and managed to suffocate the opposition’s attack. Unless Shakhter finds a way to start scoring again, it’s pretty much game over.

Yunost Minsk vs. Shakhter Soligorsk Pick

I believe that the reasonable Yunost Minsk vs. Shakhter Soligorsk prediction would be to back the favorite to win here. And yet, the odds of -195 are slightly low for my taste. I believe that the best pick here is to go for under 4.5 goals.

Yunost’s defense has been absolutely sublime in the past two games, and I don’t see how this could change here. The top seed should be able to contain Shakhter for most of the clash and patiently wait for opportunities on the other end.
