FC Minsk vs. Dynamo Brest – Belarusian Premier League, October 26, 2020
With just a few games to go until the end of the season in the Belarusian Premier League, there is still plenty to play for.
Dynamo Brest has overcome a patchy start to the campaign to still be in with a chance of European qualification – and it takes on FC Minsk on Monday.
FC Minsk vs. Dynamo Brest Odds
Dynamo Brest is probably the form team in the Belarusian Premier League at the moment, so its position of favorite for this fixture has to be seen as the correct decision from BetOnline. But FC Minsk has been looking very good as well over the last few months, so the draw bet odds should probably be considered too.
FC Minsk vs. Dynamo Brest Match Preview
When FC Minsk had to postpone fixtures earlier in the year due to the ongoing health crisis, its poor start to the season combined to make it look as if the capital city club could be involved in a relegation battle by this time in the year. But new manager Vadim Skripchenko came in at the start of August and the results have definitely picked up.
The 2-1 win against Slavia Mozyr on Wednesday was the fifth victory in the last seven league games – and although the club is still not mathematically safe from the drop, it would be a surprise if it did end up getting relegated. The players might still have nightmares about the 6-1 thrashing they received at the hands of this weekend’s opponents earlier in the year, however.
That win for Dynamo Brest was when the club first looked anything like last year’s champions – and it has steadily improved since then to now sit in fourth place, just outside the European spots. But with its game in hand on BATE and Neman, it could still have a part to play in the title run-in over the next few weeks.
It is the immense goal power that has propelled Dynamo up the table and it scored another eight in the two games it played in the last week. There was five last weekend against a clearly weaker Rukh in the Brest derby, before another three against Slutsk on Thursday. There could be even more on Monday.

Dynamo Brest to Win-119
The odds for the draw look to be relatively good, as FC Minsk is not the pushover that its league position might suggest. But Dynamo Brest is really on a roll now and anyone who witnessed the way it won the league last season will know that it is still just about in with a chance of the title this year too.
