Energetik-BGU vs. Slutsk – Belarusian Premier League, September 30, 2020

| September 29, 2020 10:40 am PDT

Although recent results have just about ended Energetik-BGU’s chances of qualifying for Europe this season, the break in the league’s fixtures has given the club a chance to catch up on some of its games in hand.

Slutsk is the visitor this Wednesday – and it will be hoping that it can somehow put on a performance that helps with its very real fears of relegation this season.

Energetik-BGU vs. Slutsk Odds

Energetik-BGU to Win -136
The Draw +305
Slutsk to Win +292

When you consider Slutsk’s dismal form over the past few months it is only surprising that the odds for an away win here are not much longer. Energetik-BGU is the odds favorite to win the game but even this price looks like good value when the two sides are compared.

Energetik-BGU vs. Slutsk Match Preview

Energetik-BGU was probably unlucky to only come away with a point last week from its crucial game against Isloch. The visiting side equalized with just ten minutes to go and took away the last real chance the Students had of breaking into the top three in the Belarusian Premier League.

That draw – and the defeat to a rejuvenated Dynamo Brest the week before – leaves Energetik-BGU in the middle of a congested league table and 11 points off third place with just six games to go. The promise of its early season form has not really been rewarded but the campaign should probably still be seen as a success.

That’s something that the players and management of Slutsk can certainly not claim. The 5-0 loss to Rukh Brest last weekend was just the latest one-sided humiliation that the club has experienced this season – and was the fifth consecutive defeat in the league.

Slutsk only has one game in hand over Smolevichi and Belshina at the bottom of the league now and that advantage will disappear after this fixture against Energetik-BGU. The only positive for Slutsk’s caretaker manager Aleksandr Konchits is that no-one at the foot of the table appears to be able to win at the moment.

Prediction and Betting Pick

  • Energetik-BGU to Win

This looks like one of those games where even the odds on match bet is the one to follow. Slutsk has looked woeful for the majority of the season, while Energetik-BGU has played some of the best soccer in the league at times.

This may not be the prettiest game in the league this season, but the home side should be the happier at the end of 90 minutes.
