Unfortunately, the weekends still can’t please us with top tier football matches. The only European professional league that is still left standing is the Belarusian Premier League. I would like to make a preview and betting prediction for the reigning champions away match. SFC Slutsk vs Dinamo Brest, Saturday, March 28, 12:00 CEST.
SFC Slutsk team news and stats
The team in white-blue colors could not climb into the top ten by the results of last year’s championship. However, it is clear how Vitaly Pavlov carefully prepared his wards for the newly started season. At the training camp, the Belarusians successfully played with good opponents and continued their unbeaten off-season series in March with a victory over Aktobe and a draw with Alania.
The main question was whether the club would be able to maintain this move during official, rather than friendly, matches. Well, there were no problems with this either. In the 1st match week of Belarus Vysshaya Liga, Slutsk took the maximum, here, at the “City Stadium” defeating Slavia. That fight came down in history because 5 penalties were awarded, 4 of them – to the gates of guests from Mozyr, who also played out in the minority. And, although Serdyuk and Takulov once did not realize their penalty kicks, SFC Slutsk got a confident victory. However, that game is not a great indicator of Slutsk form, because it was decided by the referee rather than by the players. The real test for Slutsk players is coming this Saturday as they host the reigning champions.
Predicted SFC Slutsk line-up: Pankratov (Belarus), Buraev (Russia), Chebotaev (Ukraine), Trubila (Belarus), Semenov (Belarus), Obrazov (Belarus), Krivulkin (Belarus), Koanda (Burkina Faso), Takulov (Russia), Teterenko (Ukraine), Serdyuk (Russia).
Dinamo Brest team news and stats
The team from Best, the city on the South of Belarus, in 2019 was able to confirm financial leadership in Belarus with sporting success. But then the principle “it’s easier to get to the top” works – will it be possible to stay on the peak? The team looked extremely confident in the Belarus Super Cup match, securing an easy victory over direct competitive Shakhtar Soligorsk by 30th minute.
The Brest squad put one point in their piggy bank, having tied in the match week 1 of Belarus Vysshaya Liga against Smolevichi 1-1. The game had enough dangerous moments, the players went into a rage and earned a decent amount of yellow cards, but none of them could take advantage. At the 55th minute, Mukhamedov score for Smolevichi, and at the 69th minute, Gaby from the Brest squad equaled the score.
Predicted Dinamo Brest line-up: Pavlyuchenko (Belarus), Bakaj (Albania), Gabi (Cameroon), Veretilo (Belarus), Savitskiy (Belarus), Pavlovets (Belarus), Pechenin (Belarus), Noyok (Ukraine), Kislyak (Belarus), Milevsky (Ukraine), Gordejchuk (Belarus).

SFC Slutsk vs Dinamo Brest match prediction
There is no doubt that Brest is a favorite, and the line-up of the guests looks better. But you can see with your naked eye that Dinamo is not 100 percent ready for the season. It’s also worth noting that Slutsk is playing at the city stadium and fans are allowed to come and cheer for the team. Slutsk team has won the first game of the Belarusian Premier League season, while Dinamo ended in it in a draw. Dinamo struggles to score goals providing several team leaders and the main coach have left the club ahead of the season. Therefore, my match prediction is Match Winner – SFC Slutsk with Asian Handicap +1.25 with the latest X-Bet.co Sports odds 1.76.
