BATE hosts Piast Gliwice in the first leg of the Champions League qualification 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Wednesday, July 10th at Borisov Arena (Barysaw)
BATE is a reigning champion of Belarus and almost the permanent one if we look at last 12 years. Now it is one of the leaders of the local championship either. Before the upcoming game, BATE beat Dynamo Minsk in the capital and, having a perfect mood, it may well do the same with Polish club, despite its champion’s title.

In the last season, Piast won the Polish Championship for the first time in its history. A funny and strange situation occurred at the finish of the championship. Legia, which was leading 4 rounds before the finish, unexpectedly earned only 2 points out of 12 possible in those 4 rounds. Piast, in turn, won 3 out of 4 remaining matches, and Legia was beaten in Warsaw. And it won the tournament with a margin of 4 points ... So, there is no need to overestimate the Poles here.
The championship of Belarus is in full swing, and Polish one has not started yet and this is another plus for BATE. But even if the teams were equal in these terms, the Belarusian club is more experienced. It is a frequenter of the Champions League qualifications and has already participated in the group stage of this tournament. The squad of the team is balanced and well-organized. Piast participated in the qualifications for the European Cups only 2 times in its history. And it was knocked out by Qarabag and Goteborg. Now it will be eliminated by BATE, and the club from Barysaw will probably start this process in the 1st match at home.
Prediction for the match: BATE to win
