Derry City vs FK Minsk Today’s Soccer Prediction


As the only club in Northern Ireland Derry participates in the Irish League system. The reason for this was the Northern Ireland conflict, which reached its peak in the 1970s. About 30 years ago, the club moved from the Northern Ireland to the Irish Federation. The peculiarity is that Derry City has become both Nordic and Irish champion. The Irish league is a year-round championship – so Derry is in the middle of the season. The balance in the Premier Division is balanced. Eleven times you won, just as often lost. In addition, the Northern Irish drew three times drew apart from the opponent. Accordingly, you are right in the middle of the Irish Zehnerliga, in fifth place. The goal difference is negative: 39:44. The points were picked at home. In twelve games, there were seven victories in front of their own audience, two draws and three defeats. Here is the goal difference with 21:14 positive. Derry shows the current shape curve down. Only two wins have come from the last seven games. Aaron McEneff is the top scorer for Derry City this season. In the league he has already hit the mark ten times (four penalties). Center-forward Ally Roy, who was hired by Heart of Midlothian, is stepping up the attack. In midfield, the Scot Aaron Splaine from FC Dunfermline will be the future director. The Citizens have qualified as last year’s fourth for the international business. In the preseason, the club already tried to qualify for the Europa League group stage. Against the Danish top club FC Midtjylland the northern Irish were quickly shown the limits. They dropped out with a total score of 2:10. Derry has not left much behind in Europe – we see little chance this year of remaining on the international stage.


Also in Belarus is played year-round. Dinamo Minsk is ranked second, as in the previous year. After 15 rounds, the team already took ten wins this season and lost only once (against league leaders BATE Borisov). For seven rounds the capital club is without defeat. Dinamo were particularly strong away this season: after seven games they are still unbeaten (six wins, one draw). The Northern Irish will have to keep an eye on the knockout duel Vladimir Khvashchinskiy. With five goals, he is the top scorer in Minsk this season. But Anton Saroka has already hit four times. The team of supervisor Sergey Gurenko on Artem Bykov, who has to serve a suspension from the previous year, must do without. The Portuguese Luís Rocha of CD Feirense reinforces the defense. Like Derry, the Minskers tried the Europa League qualifier. After two ascents, however, was in the third round against AEK Larnaca from Cyprus (0: 2 away, 1: 1 at home). In the recent European Cup history Austrian clubs made acquaintance with Minsk. In the playoff, the Belarusians surprisingly eliminated Red Bull Salzburg (on penalties). In the group they met Rapid Wien, but lost both matches. Minsk already had to face an Irish team in the 2016/17 European League with St Patrick’s Athletic. After a meager 1: 1 at home, Dinamo retained on the island with 1: 0 the upper hand. The winner of the match will face either Dunajska Streda, who qualified for the league in Slovakia for the next round, or Dinamo Tbilisi, the runner-up of Georgia.
