Tobias Gourlay fancies the Belarusian Premier League leaders to win again on Friday afternoon

"Despite not keeping a clean sheet all season, Vitaliy Pavlov's men have recently won three in a row"

Back Slutsk @ [2.36] to beat Energetik - BGU Minsk

Slutsk v Energetik - BGU Minsk
Friday 15:00

Today's another barren day for football around the world. But no matter - this just means tomorrow's going to be a bumper day for this column. We've already got an interest in the morning game from South Korea. Next we're slipping back into Belarus for one of tomorrow afternoon's Premier League games...

After seven rounds, Slutsk (W5-D1-L1) are the surprise league leaders. Next up for them is a home game with Energetik - BGU Minsk, who are running fourth. These two finished 11th and 12th last season, so they're not expected to maintain such exalted places in this season's table, but we'll take Slutsk to stay on top for at least another week.

Despite not keeping a clean sheet all season, Vitaliy Pavlov's men have recently won three in a row. At City Stadium, they are W2-D1-L1 this term, having scored seven times across the four games.

Energetik have lost half of their first four away matches. They have scored only three times across those four games and, despite Slutsk's shaky defence, we'll take the odds-against price on the hosts outscoring their visitors in this one.
