Slutsk vs. Dinamo Minsk Pick – Belarusian Premier League, August 21st, 2020

With such political uncertainty in Belarus at the current time, it is debatable whether this round of fixtures will be completed at all. But if they do go ahead, struggling Slutsk will kick off proceedings at home to Dinamo Minsk on Friday.

The capital city club is still part of the chasing pack and will be looking to earn three more points in a bid to finish in the top three.

Back in April Slutsk manager Vitaly Pavlov won the manager of the month award as his team rocketed to the top of the league. How times change. Now the club is a big underdog with MyBookie to beat Dinamo at home and trying to head off a relegation scrap – and Pavlov has long been replaced.

It is a sign of how the season has degenerated for Slutsk that the win over Isloch in the middle of July was regarded as a shock result. That is the only victory in the last 13 games and the club is now nervously looking over its shoulder at the fellow strugglers at the bottom of the league.

With a caretaker manager still in place, he will hope that the break for the presidential elections will have done his players some good – and that Slutsk can somehow recapture the form of the early weeks of the season when it was beating all opponents.

That outcome would seem unlikely this Friday, however, as Dinamo Minsk is just one of a number of teams in the middle of the table that are fighting to join the top teams and challenge for European qualification. With two thirds of the season completed, now is the time to start a winning streak.

Dinamo has not played a game since the first day of August though, when it fell to a very good Neman Grodno side. That result would suggest that the traditional Belarusian superpower is not good enough to make a real challenge for the top three. But defeating Slutsk should be an easier prospect.

Best Bet for Slutsk vs. Dinamo Minsk

  • Dinamo Minsk to Win

The odds for a Dinamo win on Friday are not attractive enough for a single bet but Slutsk has been conceding a few goals recently – so the totals markets might be of more interest here. The home side just doesn’t look like it can compete at the moment, so any thoughts of capitalizing on the large odds for a home win should be disregarded immediately.
