Brest vs Shakhtyor Soligorsk Prediction & Betting tips
The football world continues to look at its current navel, namely to Belarus. Although there are increasing voices calling for the game to be suspended in Belarus, President Alexander Lukashenko has so far seen no reason to panic. The ball continues to roll in Belarus.
Audiences are still allowed. Nevertheless, the current games are more similar to the so-called ghost games. Many football fans voluntarily do not visit the stadium.
Nevertheless, kicking continues during the week. The first legs in the Belarusian Cup are on the program. The semifinals are already on the agenda. Dynamo Brest vs. Shakhtar Soligorsk is about getting a good starting position for the return leg in three weeks.
A look at the table of the Belarusian league makes it clear that in the duel between Dynamo Brest and Shakhtar Soligorsk a forecast is by no means easy. Both teams can be found in the midfield after three games in the Vysheyshaya League. There are four points each. Both teams can currently be found in the lexicon under the entry “mixed season start”.
Both clubs did not appear particularly attractive when they were still young. Goals are more of a scarce commodity. Therefore, no football festival is expected on Wednesday. The tendency is even more to bet between Dynamo Brest and Shakhtar Soligorsk on relatively few goals.
That would mean that there will hardly be a preliminary decision to enter the final in this first leg. Time will tell whether the second leg will be played at all. The kick-off for the first leg of the semi-final in the Belarusian Cup between Dynamo Brest and Shakhtar Soligorsk in the DASK Brestski stadium will take place on April 8, 2020 at 17:30 p.m.
Dynamo Brest were not among the top clubs in Belarus. Until the pre-season there was never more than third place in the national league. However, this team has since developed and became Belarusian champion for the first time last year. There have also been two national cup titles in the past three years.
But that should not be the end of the flagpole, because no less than eleven Belarusian national players are in the service of Dinamo Brest. In addition, Artem Milevskiy and Yevgen Khacheridi are two Ukrainian former internationals, who had great experience with their former clubs and the national team.
With this squad defending the title should actually be possible, but the start of the season was not optimal. Four points from three games are perhaps a little too little for the increased demands, especially since the opening program was grateful. This is mainly due to the poor appearance of Sergey Kovalchuk’s eleven at home against Slavia Mozyr last weekend.
Brest was the better team at first, but after a goalless first half, the guests took the lead 2-0. Dynamo went all out against an impending defeat, but the opening goal from a Slavia own goal in the 85th minute came too late.
It is difficult to say whether this loss will affect the starting grid. To stabilize the defensive, Yevgen Khacheridi is an option in any case, especially because it will be important in the first leg to be safe at the back. In the attack, Evgen Shevchenko could possibly be an alternative.
Compared to Dinamo Brest, Shakhtar Soligorsk has been the top team in the Belarusian league for the past ten years. The last championship dates from 2005, but in the past ten years Shakhtor has finished the Vysheyshaya League nine times in the top three.
The Yurii Vernydub team also has nine players in the squad who have already worn the Belarus national team jersey. However, only a few players are currently playing in the Belarus team. Sergej Politevich and Aleksandr Gutor are the best known names in the lineup. Both still hope to be able to participate in the postponed EURO next year.
With Llukaku, Schachtjor also has a well-known attacker, but the spelling already shows that it is not the Belgian top star. Rather, Azdrem Llukaku is an attacker from Albania who has not been successful in the league this season. Shakhtor has an identical record as Brest. In addition to a win, there is a defeat and a division of points.
Shakhtar is the reigning cup winner and has not lost in the Belarusian Cup for eleven games. This could mean that between Dinamo Brest and Shakhtar Soligorsk, a prediction of a win for the home side should not necessarily be the first choice. However, it is also the duel between the champion and the cup winner, more is currently not possible in Belarus.
Yurii Vernydub’s team suffered a bitter loss of points last weekend. With a win against Neman Grodno, the start of the season could have been described as successful. Despite the clear superiority of the field, in the end it was only enough to make a goalless draw.
In general, in the games involving Shakhty Soligorsk, both teams have never met in the past few weeks. In the last nine games of Shakhtar, there was a maximum of one team with a goal on the scoreboard. That could mean that we should place bets on a maximum of one team between Dinamo Brest and Shakhtar Soligorsk.
