Belarus Belarusian Cup
Soligorsk vs Dinamo Brest
Today match prediction features free betting tips for Shakhtyor Soligorsk vs Dinamo Brest. In the first home match, Dynamo got a comfortable advantage by winning 2-0. Now they will go to Soligorsk with one simple task – not to squander what they created in the first meeting, and get to the finals no matter what. Last weekend, they played against their current opponents in the Belarusian Vysshaya Liga, lost 0-2, but came to the pitch without key players in the defenses.
Shakhtyor, in turn, have placed themselves in a difficult position. Of course, it is possible to recoup the 0-2, the world football has seen even more serious comebacks, but so far there is a feeling that Soligorsk have no ardor for this now. Yes, the team beat Brest last weekend, but still, statistically, the clubs played almost on equal terms, Dynamo were in a weakened squad and were clearly thinking about a return meeting in the Cup of the country.
We can see the trend that Brest have not been able to score in two games in a row: 9 shots against Vitebsk, 25 shots against Soligorsk, and zero conversion. But now even the absence of goals will unlikely prevent them from pursuing their objective – Dynamo can at least simply keep their 2-0 created in the first match. The guests have no obvious reasons to run ahead and to score by any means – this is necessary first of all to Shakhtyor. Shakhtyor have already scored in two consecutive games, but then again: Dynamo will come in their best squad and defense and will try not to aggravate the situation, so it is also arguable, if Soligorsk have any chances today.
This will be the fourth meeting between the clubs this season, the previous three meetings ended with goals scored only by one side. Soligorsk are clearly not fond of scoring and conceding in the same game: in only one match out of 10 in all competitions with their participation were seen goals on both sides. Such indicator of Dynamo is 3 out of 10. If we look at how the teams perform in home competition, we will see the following picture: Shakhtyor scored only once in 3 home meetings, Brest also scored only once, but in 2 away games, and conceded also 1 goal. The teams are clearly not in high scoring forms in the current situation. To emphasize, Brest do not need to score, they need to defend the advantage, they can even afford to concede one or even two. Therefore, they are unlikely to run forward. Of course, Shakhtyor should start to be active from the first minutes, but the ardor to break the defense of the guests may not be enough.
