Energetik-BGU vs FC Minsk Prediction & Betting tips
City derby and top game in Minsk! However, it is not the local top club Dinamo Minsk that is in the top Belarusian league in the top group, but the team of the Belarusian State University Energetics-BGU Minsk receives FC Minsk.
These inner city derbies have a special appeal, of course, so there is great anticipation for the duel. Especially since the current leaders in the table of the Belarusian Vysshaya League meet.
Both teams made the best start to the season and collected six points from the first two games. Accordingly, it is worth taking a look at the bookmakers’ assessment. In the game Energetik-BGU against FC Minsk, the forecast of the bookies by odds sees the home side in the outsider role.
The hosts’ good start is a little surprising. Will the third victory in a row succeed and will the ‘students’ keep their clean slate? The kick-off takes place on Sunday at 12 p.m.
The professional team of the Belarusian State University, founded in 1996, rose to the Vysshaya League two years ago. As a newcomer, the blue-whites found it difficult in the first year and fought against relegation until the end. Only a success on the last match day finally ensured relegation.
The start of the new season is therefore all the more surprising. After two days of play, the students are still standing in a white vest. With a total of six points, the blues and whites are tied with the upcoming opponent, FC Minsk. Both teams are at the top of the table, so it can be said of a top game in the early phase of the season.
The team of head coach Vladimir Belyavski received the subscription champion BATE Borissow at the start of the season, who won the title 13 times in a row before 2019. With odds of up to 13.00, the host went into this game as a clear outsider. However, the BGU surprised the incumbent vice champion and won 3-1.
On the second matchday it was up to Rukh Brest. Here too, the blue-whites prevailed 1-0. Nevertheless, the most popular betting providers see the hosts as outsiders this weekend and make no positive prediction for the home side in the game Energetik-BGU against FC Minsk.
With Ilya Shkurin, the hosts lost their best scorer last season to CSKA Moscow. But with Uzbek Jasur Jakhshibaev, a full-blooded striker has been loaned out by Pakhtakor Tashkent, who has so far forgotten Shkurin’s loss. He already has two hits on his account and is at the top of the goalscorer table.
With four goals, only the coming opponent scored more goals than the blue-whites on the first two match days. Does Energetik also convince against FC Minsk?
Today’s FC Minsk was founded in 2006 by a merger of two clubs and has been playing in the Belarusian Vysshaya League since 2009. After the Red-Blues had only secured a secure midfield place with tenth place last season, FC has been one of the surprise teams so far this season.
After two days of play, the guests record the optimal score of six points on their account. Due to the best goal difference, the team of head coach Andrey Razin is ahead of the tied teams Energetik-BGU, Torpedo Zodino and Isloch Minsk at the top of the table.
On matchday one, Minsk won 3-1 at Belshina. While this victory was still to be expected, the triumph in the second game was more surprising. In the derby against the favorite team of Dinamo Minsk, they won 3-2. Despite a 3-0 break, the hosts made it exciting again in the second half.
The offensive was particularly convincing in both games. With six goals, no other team in the league scored more goals than the league leaders. The betting provider bwin, tested by the betting base, offers in the game Energetik-BGU against FC Minsk odds of 1.80 for the bet on a game with at least three goals.
Vladimir Khvashchinskjy, loaned by Soligorsk, has twice overcome the opposing goalkeeper and is the best scorer of his team.
In the last season, the red-blue won only one away win. It remains to be seen whether the success at the start at Belshina was a flash or whether FC Minsk got the problems on the opponent’s place under control.
