Din. Minsk (Blr) vs Piast Gliwice (Pol) Prediction & Betting tips
While Piast Gliwice has never successfully qualified for a group stage of an international competition, Dinamo Minsk took part in the preliminary round twice in the Europa League in 2014 and 2015. So the Belarusians have more experience in struggling through the qualifying rounds, but failed bitterly a year ago due to an underdog from Latvia.
Nevertheless, in the run-up to the game between Dinamo Minsk and Piast Gliwice, the bookmakers’ odds were very thin towards the home side, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows.
At Dinamo Minsk against Piast Gliwice, the prognosis may also include the home advantage. Minsk won six of the ten league games in the Belarusian Premier League in 2020 and only conceded four home goals. Opposite this is a Gliwice, which has only just resumed league operations, but started the new season very poorly with a 2-0 defeat.
It is difficult to give a tip on the outcome of the game at Dinamo Minsk against Piast Gliwice. The bet that a maximum of one team will score a goal in the regular playing time is more sustainable. Further betting recommendations for the first qualifying round are available in the Europa League betting tips section.
The Belarusian fourth of the preseason currently has the great advantage over practically all competitors in the qualifying rounds for the Europa League that he is fully in the rhythm of the game. Not only does the Belarusian Premier League take place from March to the beginning of December, but it was not suspended because of the global pandemic.
Dinamo Minsk has played 21 league games since March, but has won less than half of all games. This brings the blue-whites currently a sobering eighth place in the table, with which further participation in the qualifying rounds for an international competition would be far from.
The fact that it currently does not work too regularly with the entry of three points is primarily due to the too tame offensive. The only 24 goals this season are the fifth worst value in the entire Russian Premier League.
The fact that the capitals are not in the basement, but still in the upper half of the table, is due to the fact that the defensive is the absolute showpiece of the seven-time national champion. There were only 15 goals conceded in 21 league games. That corresponds to the second best defense behind leaders Soligorsk.
Games with the participation of the blue-whites usually end with close results such as 1: 0, 0: 0 or sometimes 0: 1. Against this background it also explains why the tip “Both teams score: No” at Dinamo Minsk against Piast Gliwice brings so much value with it.
Against a Polish opponent, who tends to have the slightly more expensive squad and has a lot of room for improvement early in the season, the key to success in a single knockout match without a second leg should ultimately be found in a solid defensive again.
For Piast Gliwice, the new 2020/21 season is also about further establishing itself in the Ekstraklasa. Since 2012, the Upper Silesian club has been in the top division of the country, in which the first national championship was celebrated a year ago.
Nevertheless, the path did not lead to an international competition. Gliwice only lost in the qualifying round for the Champions League, where it went against another Belarusian representative, namely BATE Baryssau. And then the Europa League qualification against Underdog FC Liga was over.
In three attempts so far, Piast Gliwice has not only never qualified for one of the two UEFA competitions, but has never prevailed in any of the four knockout games.
This assessment is reinforced by the fact that Waldemar Fornalik’s team did not get off to a good start to the season. In the Polish Cup, the Red-Blue did their job appropriately and defeated the lower-class club CWKS Resovia 4-0. At the season opener in the Ekstraklasa last Saturday, however, there was a 2-0 defeat at Slask.
It is clear that a team that had 13 newcomers or players returning after loan this summer and 11 departures has to find itself again. Even that does not necessarily mean that the fourth attempt to survive a qualifying round for an international competition for the first time will be marked by success.
