Dinamo Brest will host Shaktyor Soligorsk, and that will be a kernel match of the Belarusian Premier League sixth round.
The leader of last year’s championship, they didn’t start defending their title in a confident manner. At the start, they played a draw with Smolevichi and got a victory against Slutsk, but then the players lost to Slavia. After that, the team defeated Shakhtyor in the Cup with a 2-0 score and Isloch in the championship with a 3-1 score. In the last round, they lost to Vitebsk with a 1-0 score. The players didn’t manage to perform all the game moments they created. In the end of that match, Mr. Khacheridi, a Brest defender from Ukraine, made a stupid penalty kick to his team’s goal and received a red card. Let’s remember why this player was kicked out of Dinamo Kyiv. There were rumors about the contract termination with one of the most expensive players according to the Transfermarket opinion, but the club’s management denied this information.
The team changed their coach in the off-season, and now they are modifying their game style and strategy. As Mr. Vernidub said in the interview after the previous round, “I can’t remember any similar start of the championship like this one in my entire life.” The team lacks balance. The players have issues to perform attacks to the end, creating pressure on the opponents and dangerous moments with high chances of scoring. So far, they have kicked just three goals in 5 games. They are not confident in their defense strategy as well and make mistakes on a regular basis. The team was defeated by Torpedo in the first round and by Slutsk in the previous one. They have one victory against Gorodeya and two draws with Neman and Smolevichi. As a result, the team ranks thirteenth in the standings.
The upcoming event will be the third common match between the two teams in 2020. So far, the host team has turned out to be more successful. They have won the Super Cup and defeated the opponent in the first match of the Cup’s semi-final (by the way, the score was the same during both games — 2-0). Bookmakers also consider Brest a leading team — 2.37 against 3.2 for the guests’ win. The odds for a draw are 3.44. Both teams need to win, and both will bear in mind the upcoming return game of the Cup’s semi-final which will be held on Wednesday. These teams are both leaders as for the number of the goal attempts made — 35 by the hosts and 37 by the guests. No other team has made more shots than them in this season. You can try a handicap of 0 for 1.77: the last event ended with 6-2 in their favor. However, the team will miss one central defender, and the Soligorsk players have become more active in shooting. You may try an individual total of more than 5 for Dinamo for 1.87 (this bet was successful 4 times in 6 games). Besides, it is worth giving a try to an individual total of 1for Shakhtyor’s yellow cards in the first half for 2.04 (this bet was successful in 8 games in a row). Moreover, you can catch the bet of more than 0.5 for 1.7 in live on the fifteenth minute of the event.
