Isloch Minsk vs Slutsk Prediction & Betting tips
Last year FK Isloch Minsk lacked three points to win the internal championship in the capital. Fifth, they barely let rival Dinamo Minsk (4th) take the lead. The club, which was only founded in 2007, is making a new attempt this season. After two days of playing, the blue and yellow have the maximum yield of six points on the account.
In the third match day Isloch meets Slutsk. According to the odds of the best bookmakers, it seems quite likely that the home side will have a three again and thus early establish themselves in the top group of the Belarusian Vysshaya League. There is currently a 1.78 in the top for a home win, which implies a 56% probability of occurrence.
The guest from Slutsk, which is only about 100 kilometers from the capital, is certainly not to be taken lightly, after all, the previous year has already posted a victory. There was also a narrow defeat in front of the home team against the reigning champions Dinamo Brest (0: 1).
However, what prompted us to give a tip on the host between Isloch and Slutsk is the fact that the Minsk team was one of the best teams in Belarus at home last year and also had their first two successes in the new game year in front of their own fans were. We therefore do not believe that the lower-quality guests land a coup and kidnap points from third in the table.
The FK Isloch Minsk has undergone an exciting and equally good development in recent years. The capital city club made its debut in the country’s top division only in 2016, but found it astonishingly well in the premier season as seventh. After two average seasons that finished in eleventh and tenth places, the breakthrough finally came in 2019.
With strong 13 wins from 30 games as well as eight draws and “only” nine defeats, the blue-yellow team took the excellent fifth place and even reached the semi-finals for the first time in the cup competition, where they were eliminated after an extension by Shakhtar Soligorsk. Nevertheless, the year 2019 definitely went down in the annals as the best of the still young club history.
It is not yet possible to conclusively answer whether the team of Vitali Zhukovski, who is considered one of the greatest coaching talents in Eastern Europe, will be able to build on previous season’s performances. The fact is, however, that the start of the new game year was a perfect success.
In the first two matches, both Neman Grodno and promoted Smolevichi were beaten 1-0 at home. Attacking, the capitals did not necessarily spill glory, but they could rely on an extremely stable defense. In general, the good defense was the key to the outstanding performance in the Vysshaya League in 2019.
In fact, the Minsk have been the country’s best home defense in the past season. The FKI allowed just nine goals in 15 encounters at home. This strong value led to a more than decent home record of eight wins, five draws and just two bankruptcies, which was only surpassed by three other clubs.
The good impression from the previous year in connection with the higher quality in the squad as well as the home strength justify our Isloch vs. Slutsk prediction in the direction of the home side, who suffered their last home defeat in September 2019 and had to concede more than one goal in their own stadium in April of the previous year.
After initial difficulties, the striker really blossomed last year, scoring 11 goals and preparing three more. The two goals in the current season are also attributed to the most valuable Isloch player, who is also likely to find some notes from various European scouts.
Since 2014, FK Slutsk has been part of the permanent inventory of the Belarusian Vysshaya League. The best placement was a seventh place in the 2017 season, which was confirmed with position eight the following year. In 2019, on the other hand, it was only eleventh. In the end, only four points separated the blue-whites from the relegation zone.
In the new game year, the men of Vitali Pavlov have set themselves the goal of collecting counters against relegation as early as possible, so as not to have to tremble again until the end to avoid relegation. The start after two game days can be described as quite positive.
After a 3-1 home win against Slavia Mozyr on matchday one, the Pavlov team played against the reigning title holder Dinamo Brest a week ago at home, but ultimately suffered a 0-1 defeat. Nevertheless, the performance gives courage and hope for a better season in 2020.
Despite the two good appearances, relatively high odds of the outsider’s success are offered between Isloch and Slutsk. This is primarily due to the fact that the blue-whites have to compete for the first time on Sunday.
In the past season, the guests were able to win only four of 15 matches in the distance. Eight matches were lost. The team also scored a measly 15 goals. Not least because of this, it can also make sense between Isloch and Slutsk to make a prediction of the host’s “zero” success.
