BATE take on the visitors Astana in the second leg of Europa League qualification. The match will be played at Borisov-Arena on Thursday, August 25th. The first leg ended with 2-0 win of Kazakh side.
BATE are in risk of being left without participation in group stage of Eurocups. Belarus champions failed in Champions League, making way to modest Irish side Dundalk and now are behind in the matchup with Astana after 0-2 defeat in Kazakhstan. At the same time, the team continues showing excellent results in domestic league, taking one win after another. With all these recent failures, the team is undefeated at own stadium since the end of October last year when they lost to Barcelona 0-2. They played 17 home matches since then, taking 12 wins and five draws.

Astana is another team that couldn’t pass qualification of Champions League. The team lost matchup to Celtic, 1-1, 1-2, conceding decisive goal in Glasgow in added time from penalty kick. The first leg ended with well-deserved home win over Belarus champions and that results give solid chances to the team for the group stage. At the same time, Astana are unable to win on the road in three matches in a row with two defeats and one draw recorded.
BATE are strong at own turf and they have skills to prevail in the match and gain result they need. At least, we should expect Belarus side to win but there is no guarantee that victory will get them the place in the group stage.
Prediction for the match: BATE to win.
