Despite the financial difficulties, Vitaliy Pavlov’s team ranks first in the standings and has become the championship’s leader in almost all categories. The white-blue players are the most scoring (14 goals) and the most winning (5 games) team in the Premier League. The only loss on their account is the second-round match with Dinamo Brest which resulted in a 0:1 score. After that, the team’s efficiency is a series of four victories and one draw. In the last round, during the away match with Dinamo Minsk, Slutsk defeated the rivals with a 2:1 score. To note, the Dinamo players were considered the favorites of that confrontation.
After a successful start, the team slowed down a little. A series of three consecutive victories was replaced by a series of three consecutive losses. However, due to a dry victory during the away meeting with Smolevichi, a championship’s outsider, with a 2:0 score, Energetik came back to the fight for leadership. With 12 scores in the asset, the team ranks fourth in the standings. They seem to disregard compromises — four victories, three losses, but no draw.
The local success in the match against Smolevichi is unlikely to help Energetik in the upcoming game against the championship’s leader. The so-called students seem to be non-stable in the performance team with obvious issues with their defense strategy. Besides, the statistics of the personal meetings between these two teams are in the favor of Slutsk — one victory and one draw. We recommend placing a bet on a dry victory of Slutsk, on which bookmakers give decent odds — 2.23. Let’s consider other opportunities. During the last seven matches, Slutsk played in the first half a total of more than 0.5. That’s why we suggest betting on the home team’s scoring in the first half for 2.
