BATE Borisov aims second round spot

BATE Borisov aims second round spot

BATE Borisov and Partizani Tirana are both aiming to earn a qualification in the second round of the qualifying round. This is already the second leg of their first round qualifying round, as their first leg ended in a 1-1 draw. As their first leg ended in a draw, both teams are now desperate for a win in this match. This will just be the second time that BATE and Partizani meet in their history, with their first meeting being recorded during their first leg. On that match, Dimitry Antilevsky from BATE opened the scoring, hoping that it would be enough for a win. However, Partizani‘s Tedi Cara tied the game just 10 minutes after, thus, a draw. Moreover, both BATE and Partizani are no longer new when it comes to Champions League qualifiers. The meeting between BATE and Partizani is on July 19, 2023, at 2:00 AM (GMT+8).

Champions League Qualifiers: BATE Borisov

BATE is a team who just returned in the qualifiers after three seasons, making them eager for a win here. They last booked a spot in the group stage of the Champions League during the 2015-16 season, so they want to gain a spot here once again. Moreover, it seems like BATE has a good momentum coming into this game. They are unbeaten in their last four games across all contests, which gives them the momentum they need here. From those four matches, BATE managed to keep three clean sheets, and concede just one goal. Additionally, goal scoring is not a problem for them, as they were able to score 17 goals in their matches. However, it seems like playing at home is not BATE’s cup of tea. They won only once in their last five home games. Fortunately though, they are performing better recently, earning five wins from their last 14 games.

Ruslan Khadarkevich made his debut on their first leg, so expect him to retain his spot here in the second leg. Moreover, Dmitry Podestrelov, who also debuted on their first leg could also retain his spot for this crucial match.

Partizani is a team who just returned for the Champions League qualifiers after two seasons, which made them eager here to win. They are aiming not to repeat their disappointing qualifier run in 2019, where they were defeated by Qarabag. The first leg of that match also ended as a draw, but they were unfortunate that Qarabag dominated them in the second leg. This is the nightmare they are hoping not to repeat again, as they want to inch closer to the Champions League. Fortunately though, they still have a good momentum coming into this game, as they have an unbeaten run. Partizani is unbeaten in their last eight matches across all contests, including their first leg. However, when it comes to the European qualifiers, they only recorded three wins from their last 25. What could give them the confidence here is the fact that two of which are all coming on the road.

Adnard Mehmeti, Partizani’s new signing is expected to retain his spot here as well, despite making a debut with the club during the first leg. With that, there are not much changes could happen here, as this squad eyes consistency.
