FC Minsk vs Dinamo Minsk Prediction and Betting Preview 28 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 3-2
Dinamo Minsk have endured a rotten start to the 2020 season in Belarus, having been dumped out of the cup by BATE Borisov and losing their first league outing of the new campaign at home to top-flight new boys Ruh Brest, however, expect a reaction in the derby against FC Minsk.
Match status: 2019/20 BELARUS Vysshaya Liga - Round 2
Venue: Stadion Torpedo (Minsk)
Sergei Gurenko’s side head across the Belarusian capital on Saturday to face rivals FC Minsk in a bid to kick-start their season and are deservedly favourites with bookmakers to do so.

Hosts Minsk opened their league campaign with a comprehensive 3-1 win at newly-promoted Belshina but their record in this derby makes for especially grim reading. Since reaching the Belarusian Premier League in 2007, Minsk have met their city rivals 29 times in league and cup matches and have won on just four occasions.

Perhaps even more worrying for their fans is that all of those triumphs have come away from home with eight draws and just six goals to show for their efforts from 14 meetings at the FC Minsk Stadium.

Next up is a local derby between FC Minsk and Dinamo Minsk in this Saturday’s clash at the Stadion FK Minsk with not only bragging rights up for grabs but also an important match for both sides as they look to gain some early momentum in this season’s Vyshhaya Liga.

FC Minsk have already opened their account in the Belarus top flight thanks to a resounding 3-1 win away from home at newcomers, Belshina, to start their campaign off in positive fashion but they face a very different prospect in the shape of local rivals, Dinamo Minsk in this Saturday’s encounter.

Saturday’s hosts finished in a mid-table position of 9th place in the Vyshhaya Liga which was largely thanks to a solid looking home record which included 8 wins and just 3 defeats throughout the whole campaign, but they’ve struggled against Dinamo Minsk in recent exchanges as the hosts have lost 5 of the last 7 meetings against Dinamo.

It should be noted though that 4 of these 5 victories for Dinamo Minsk were recorded on home turf at their Stadyen Traktar, while the last two meetings at FC Minsk have ended in stalemate.

Onto Dinamo Minsk then, and it wasn’t the best of starts for the visitors as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to newcomers, Rukh Brest, which became a third defeat in four matches in the Belarus top flight for Dinamo Minsk.

The visitors finished in a more satisfactory looking 4th place at the end of last season though which was again thanks to a fairly reasonable home record which saw them win 9 of their 15 home matches.

However, Dinamo Minsk will be eager to improve results away from home especially as they’ve now gone 5 matches without a win on the road which includes losing their last two away matches on the trot at Torpedo Zhodino and BATE respectively, but they do have their previous history over FC Minsk to fall back on.

Despite losing last time out at home, Dinamo Minsk hold a good record over FC Minsk and the visitors could bounce back here, but goals could be a scarce commodity in this upcoming local derby as 8 of the last 10 encounters have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

FC Minsk vs Dinamo Minsk Predictions

While Dinamo have been a fixture at the top end of the table, Minsk have flirted around mid-table for most of their time in Belarus’s top division. Last season Dinamo finished fourth, five places and 14 points better off than Minsk.

They look a good bet to open their tally for the campaign and at bigger odds backing them to win 2-0 could also be worthwhile. Eight of Dinamo’s last nine victories in this fixture have been to nil – four of which have been by this scoreline.
