BATE VS PSV PREVIEW & PREDICTION
In the first leg of the Champions League play-off, starting with 20:00 on Tuesday, the BATE-PSV will be played. The match will take place on “Borisov Arena”. The host team did not see defeat in their previous confrontations with Qarabag and HJK.
After limiting the Qarabag field, score 1-0, the hosts did the utmost necessary in the second hand to ensure their presence in the play-off. Leaving the initiative of the opponents, who dominated all the chapters, they finally drew the score 1-1. Ivanic opened the score in the 20th minute, while Michel restored equality in the second part of the game. Thus, BATE remained without defeat in the two Champions League tours and is now on the brink of returning to the UCL after a three-year break.
In the last five home games he scored two victories and three draws. Only in one of these games the table suffered more than two changes.
On the other side, thinking more about the confrontation on Tuesday, the guests were hard on the last round of the championship, 2-1 with Sittard. Although they had a possession of 61% and not less than 17 goals, they were forced by Rigo’s 90th minute success. Lozano first opened the score from the first half. It was the second goal scored by the Mexican striker only 23 years old, in the three games played this season. Thus, with the high morale, PSV hopes to get a positive result on “Borisov Arena”, through which to take a serious option regarding the qualification. However, in the last 11 moves in the European Cups, he scored only four draws and no less than seven defeats.
This will be the first direct confrontation between the two bands.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.86
