DIN vs NEM Dream11 Match Prediction: Having toyed with European qualification last season, the current campaign has been nothing short of a disaster so far for Dinamo Minsk. After all, they are closer to relegation zone at the moment, then to their intended targets, which at the moment, looks heaven too far and unachievable, at least on current form. But the season is still in its infancy and a lot can change with a couple of wins, and Minsk knows they have another shot at getting their season back on track when they play Neman Grodno in the Belarusian Premier League on Thursday (IST).
That stark reality set in for Dinamo Minsk once again last week when they went down 1-0 to Gorodeya in what was their third defeat in just four league games. Things could yet turn for the worse for Minsk and they may find themselves inside the bottom two if they fail to get anything out of this match while other results go against them. Fair to say, time to buckle-up for the entire team and the assorted staff.
For Neman Grodno, no doubt that things could have been better but they should be happy with their efforts. After opening the season with a 1-0 defeat at Isloch, Grodno avoided defeats in the next three games; winning 2-0 against Vitebsk and drawing the other two, including 1-1 draw at home against Belshina last week. That draw in the last match would hurt them the most out of those four games as ut came against a team currently propping up the table.
Date- Thursday, April 16
Kick-Off- 10:00 PM (IST)
Venue- Stadyen Dynama Minsk
That 1-0 defeat at Gorodeya came at a further cost for Minsk as key midfielder Danilo was give marching orders for two bookable offences. He is suspended for this game as a result.
Evgeni Shikavka is likely to replace Danilo in the playing 11, but the likes of Dmitri Borodin, Jun-Young Kim and Vladislav Lozhkin are also options. Danilo’s vacant spot could be the only change made by the hosts in the playing 11.
Neman head coach Kovalevich has no injury concerns ahead of this game and may go with the same playing 11 that featured last week. But if the manager does look to make changes that would most likely be between Aleksey Legchilin and Egor Khvalko.
DIN (Expected Playing 11)- M Plotnikov (GK), A Rios, A Sukhotskyi, K Brucic, D Dinga, M Shvetsov, E Olekhnovich, Evgeni Shikavka, M Pavlovski, V Klimovich, I Bakhar
NEM (Expected Playing 11)- D Dudar (GK), A Slabashevich, A Vasiljev, D Stojkovic, G Kantaria, E Khvalko/A Legchilin, A Yakimov, G Kadimyan, P Zabelin, G Rassadkin, Z Marusic
Ivan Bakhar: The 21-year-old Belarusian is making the right noise these days. He has become a key member of this team and is a good presence in the midfield. His passing range is better than most of his teammates, and is a threat in goal, while his stamina, his ability to make runs from deep, is an added advantage.
Gegam Kadimyan: The most in-form player for Neman Grodno at the moment. He leads the team with two goals and is a better option for captain from this team.
Vladislav Klimovich: Worth considering. He may have joined the team in the summer, but he is now one of the first names on the team sheet following some impressive displays.
Karlo Brucic: The 27-year-old Croatian may be a defender, but he is a threat during set-pieces. He is worth the option in the playing 11.
Zoran Marusic: He was one of the most consistent players for Neman last season. Although he has not been as good as he can be, he remains one of the top midfielders in this team.
Dream11 Prediction For Today Match
Dinamo Minsk have a better roster and a better value than their current position on the Belarusian Premier League table. They are also the host here and should get at least a point from this match.
