Dinamo Minsk vs Torpedo Zhodino predictions for Friday evening’s Belarusian Premier League clash. Dinamo Minsk hope to break out of their losing streak when they host an in form Torpedo Zhodino in the Belarusian Premier League
◾️Dinamo Minsk may be regulars in the Belarusian Premier League top three, but there are signs that their grip on the European qualification places is slipping.
◾️The hosts finished 4th for the first time since 2011 last season, and the new campaign has got off to a disappointingly rocky start.
◾️Dinamo began the season with an early cup exit at the hands of BATE, and followed that with a dismal 1-0 loss at home to the newly promoted Ruh Brest in their Premier League opener.
◾️Things went from bad to worse last weekend when they visited rivals Minsk, heading into the break 3-0 down before having a man sent off.
◾️Remarkably, Dinamo almost made an epic comeback thanks to a quickfire double 15 minutes from time, but they couldn’t make the final leap and come into this clash with no points on the board.
◾️With Dinamo Minsk’s form slipping, one team that is poised to take advantage is Torpedo BelAZ.
◾️The visitors have long been on the cusp of securing European qualification, finishing within touching distance in each of the last five seasons.
◾️Their campaign, despite being knocked out of the cup early on, has started very well indeed.
◾️They have beaten Shakhtyor and Belshina by a goal to nil and find themselves 4th in the Belarusian top flight.
◾️Vitali Ustinov and Dmitri Yashin, two newly acquired defenders, have helped them to successive clean sheets while winger Gabriel Ramos found the net on his league debut for his new club.
Football Prediction of the Day Dinamo Minsk vs Zhodino
Zhodino is a “tough” team especially when the result on the table is not favorable.
In the two cup matches with Soligorsk in March (both lost), there were 6 and 8 yellow cards respectively.
I expect a lot of determination from the hosts, who still do not allow a negative result.
On the other side, Zhodino hardly accepts being led on the table.
Bet Tips: Over 3.5 yellow cards in the second half
