BATE vs Partizan Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first leg of the final round in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League, BATE take on Partizan.
BATE is one of the best teams in Belarus who play in European competitions for years. They have a very good team and without any doubt they are favorites to qualify in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League. But, their recent performance is not at the high level. In the first round, they had many problems to eliminate Dundalk (agg. 2-1), in the second round the same thing against Videoton (agg. 2-1). Anyway, they went through, but those two teams are too much weaker and if they want to make the final step and go through, BATE will have to play much better, because their opponent is much stronger than Dundalk and Videoton. Despite the fact that they are at the top of the table in the Belarus football league, they failed to win in the last two matches – they even failed to score (loss against Dinamo Minsk at home 0-1 and goalless draw against FC Gomel). Seems like they have many problems in attack, but on the other side BATE have very good defence. Good move of BATE management is that they brought Belarus football star Alexander Hleb, who can help them a lot.
Partizan was better side in the previous round against Steaua Bucharest and they have already reached their goal – they qualified in the group phase of UEFA Europa League. But, they want more – they want to play in the UEFA Champions league. Team from Belgrade have very good attack, such as Bojinov, Oumarou and Zivkovic. Partizan bought Valeri Bojinov who played in many big European clubs, but he’s not in the great form. Despite that fact, he is very experienced players could be very dangerous for BATE defenders. The main problem for visitors could be their very shaky defence.
