RUKH BREST vs FC MINSK

Match day 5 of the Vysshaya Liga sees new boys Rukh Brest taking on FC Minsk with both teams eager to reverse their recent terrible fortunes

 

RUKH BREST

Newly promoted Rukh Brest kicked off the season with a stunning upset, winning away at Dinamo Minsk. That now seems like a long time ago as they took a nosedive in their next three games, losing two straight at home to high flyers Energetik-BGU and away to BATE, before picking up a point drawing the last game away to Slavia Mozyr. This poor run of results has now left them dangling precariously close to the danger zone as they sit on 14th place in the 16-team league with just 4 points to their name.

Aleksandr Sednyov’s men have been quite solid at the back in spite of the woeful results. Both of their losses were by a single goal. However, they have had a goal drought since the 1-0 opening day win, with defender Oleksiy Kovtun’s goal remaining all they have to show for their season so far. If they are to get any positive result, then they will need to get their forwards going.

As much as the last three games have been a baptism of fire for the top flight debutants following a dream start, playing at home should give them some confidence. Moreover, they are playing an opponent that has had a dip in form themselves losing the last two games.

 

FC MINSK

After a brilliant start to the season with two great wins away at Belshina and at home to Dinamo Minsk, FC Minsk have lost back to back games against one of this season’s surprise packages Energetik-BGU and giants Bate Borisov, soaking in 5 goals without reply in these two losses, to drop to 9th place on the Vysshaya League table. Granted, these were very difficult games against top teams and therefore this trip Brest, a newly promoted team that has also stumbled in their recent outings gives them the perfect opportunity to get their season back on track.

After a rather disappointing last season, FC Minsk came into this season with European football ambitions. They made the right moves in the off-season and they now have quality players within their ranks. 29 years old Belarus forward Vladimir Khvashchinsky has been the pick of the bunch. He has already scored a couple of goals and has proven to be quite a handful for opposition defences. Coach Andrey Razin major concern FC Minsk’s remains their own defence. They are yet to keep a clean sheet in any of their outings this season. He will need more from Aleksey Zaleskiy and Dmytro Ryzhuk who continue anchoring the defence.

They had a lot of struggles on the road in recent seasons with just two wins from their last 17 away league matches but they have already shown that they have the nerve to compete away from home with an impressive away win in the Belarus Cup against a fancied BATE Borisov side and a terrific win at Belshina to kick off their league campaign.

RUKH BREST V FC MINSK BETTING TIPS AND PREDICTIONS

Rukh have been on a goal drought and have lost each of their last three home games. They are however facing a team whose defence has been the most generous in the league so far this season having soaked in 8 goals already. FC Minsk have themselves proven to be prolific in front of goal. We anticipate that Rukh will end their scoring drought and Minsk continue their scoring ways and we are therefore backing BTTS @ 1.94 for our first betting tip for this game.

Minsk may have lost the last two games, but when you put those losses in context, you realize that they did lose to some really strong opponents. They have more than enough quality to get a decent result here against a newly promoted side that is still learning the ropes in so far as top-flight football is concerned. Bet9ja betting app‘s price of 1.38 for Double Chance FC Minsk Win or Draw is good enough and we are backing it for our final tip for this game.
