Belarusian Premier League preview: Will the top three keep up their strong starts?
Odds and preview for this weekend’s fixtures
This weekend we enter the sixth round of matches in the Belarusian Premier League.
And with a full round of fixtures across Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we’ve taken a look at the key battles.
We’ve got two games to look forward to on Friday, starting with Wigwam Smolevichy v Dinamo Minsk at 16:00. The hosts are currently second-bottom with just three points and they’re priced at 16/5 to record their first win of the season.
Minsk are the favourites at 19/20, while the draw is going at 19/10. Later on, Neman Grodno are 11/8 favourites to win at home to 2/1 shot Zvezda-Va-Bgu-Minsk.
The action continues on Saturday with three matches, including last year’s runners-up BATE Borisov. Their slow start continued last week with a goalless draw but they’re well backed at 8/15 to secure a win at fourth-placed Gorodeya, who are priced at 11/2.
Elsewhere, Slavia Mozyr are 11/10 to win at home to Minsk, who our traders have at 12/5. Last year’s champions Dinamo Brest are currently 10th and they’re the slight favourites at 23/10 to beat Soligorsk.
The top three in the table are only separated by goal difference and they’re all in action on what is set to be a thrilling Sunday of football.
Slutsksakhar Slutsk are currently top and they should win at 8/11 at home to rock-bottom Belshina Bobruisk, who are priced at 19/5. The draw is going at 11/5.
Meanwhile, third-placed Torpedo-Belaz are the 10/11 favourites to overcome 16/5 priced FC Ruh Brest.
Vitebsk are currently second but they could lose ground if our traders have called it right. They’re 13/5 to win at Isloch, who have the advantage at 11/10.
