Football accumulator tips: April 5
Energetik vs FC Minsk (Sun, 12:00)
Goals could well be the order of the day in this fixture when considering whether to add it to your footy acca.
Both teams have scored in 16 of Energetik's last 20 league matches and that has been the case in six of Minsk's previous 10 away trips in the Belarusian Premier League.
Energetik have picked up where they left off last season, having won both matches so far following a five-game unbeaten run to end the previous campaign.
They stunned perennial powerhouses BATE Borisov 3-1 in their opener, with Jasurbek Yakhshiboev bagging a brace, before beating Ruh Brest 1-0.
Minsk have also picked up successive wins, scoring six goals in the process as a 3-1 win at Belshina was followed by a 3-2 home success over derby rivals Dinamo.
Vladimir Khvashchinskiy, a new signing from Shakhter, has made a good start to life in Minsk by netting in each fixture.
We are snapping up 13/20 for both teams to score to kick off our accumulator football bets.
Vitebsk v Smolevichi (Sun, 14:00)
Vitebsk just avoided relegation rom the Belarusian Premier League last season after finishing on a five-game winless streak, including losing the last four.
They began the new campaign with a 1-0 home win over Gorodeya before going down 2-0 at Neman Grodno last weekend.
History suggests this could well be a low-scoring affair as at least one team has failed to score in 16 of Vitebsk's last 19 league games.
Meanwhile, at least one team has also been held scoreless in 12 of Smolevichi's 16 away matches in the league.
Since securing promotion back to the top flight, Smolevichi drew 1-1 at Dinamo Brest before losing 1-0 at Isloch.
Under 2.5 goals have been scored in 10 of Vitebsk's last 11 league fixtures and in each of Smolevichi's previous five so that seems a sensible call to add to our best football tips.
But to add a bit of value to our football accumulator tips for today, we are going for a Vitebsk win and under 2.5 goals at 29/10.
Isloch v Slutsk (Sun, 16:00)
Isloch enjoyed their best season since earning promotion to the Belarusian Premier League last term, finishing fifth and reaching the cup semi-finals.
They have made a solid start to this campaign, posting 1-0 wins at home to Neman Grodno and Smolevichi.
Guinea striker Momo Yansane netted in both games to continue his excellent scoring record for the team, with 13 goals netted in 30 appearances.
Slutsk finished 11th last season, winning this corresponding fixture 1-0 having gone down 3-1 at home earlier in the campaign.
A 3-1 win at home to Slavia Mozyr in their opener was followed by a 1-0 reverse to visitors Dinamo Brest.
Goals are expected to be in short supply if the stats are anything to go by with all of Isloch's last eight home matches seeing under 2.5 goals.
There have also been two or less goals in 12 of Slutsk's previous 17 away league encounters.
With that said, we will complete our European footy acca for the weekend by going for under 2.5 goals.
