BATE vs Qarabag PREVIEW & PREDICTION 14/08/2018


Tuesday, at 18:00, BATE Borisov receives Qarabag’s (Azerbaijan) visit to the second round of the Preliminary Round 3 of the UEFA Champions League. The tour was 1-0 away for away runners, which means that the Azerbaijan can only qualify with a victory in the away game. There are two very defensive teams that will make a cautious, waiting game.

BATE’s share is on the rise because the host team does not need a win and can also qualify with a draw. Bate has been in this situation many times and played very economically on his own home, where he was careful not to receive a goal in the first place. Qarabag can not be attacked from the start, because any goal he has received compels him to wonders, but a short score of 1-0 would push the game into overtime and that’s what they want to get black and white.

BATE has no force in the previous seasons.

There are not many talent players in the two bands that have a similar setting. Both are based on homogeneity and group strength, and technical flashes rarely occur. BATE is in good shape, but has shown some defensive insecurity including in the championship, where he has received, for example, a slender goal from Smolevichi (3-2). BATE qualified in tour 3 after 0-0 with HJK Helsinki home and 2-1 away, which shows us that the level of the Belarusians is not exactly high at this time. Qarabag scrambles in the championship, but he is not a scarecrow in UCL.

To reach 3, Azerbaijan eliminated Olimpija Ljubljana with 1-0 and 0-0, then crossing the Kukesi Albanians with 0-0 away and 3-0 home. Generally, in many of the games the two “GG” bets are losing, because both play at a slow and cautious pace. So if BATE will open the score, the hosts will barricade in their own half without offensive interest, and if Qarabag marks then it is possible to see overtime. In any case, we are expecting a matchless show, very tactile.

PREDICTION: BATE to win @ 2.00
