BATE vs Koln Prediction 19 October 2017

Tournament: Europa League
Location: Borisov Arena
Match date: 19.10.2017 at 18:00

On October 19 2017 at 18:00 in the upcoming game of the third matchday of the Europa League group stage at the Borisov Arena the local BATE will play against their guests from Germany Koln.

At the end of the Belarus national championship BATE are still on the third place in the standings which is rather unusual for the team. Yet, they used the mistake the leaders made in the previous match and shortened the distance to the first place to make it two points now. It leaves them rather good chances to get gold medals this time. In the latest game of the elite division BATE outplayed Vitebsk 3:1. In the Group H the teams are competing for the second place as Arsenal are the obvious favorites there. In the previous matches BATE drew Zrvene Zvezda 1:1 and after that they lost to Arsenal 2:4.

One can hardly imagine that the favorites of the previous season of the German Bundesliga haven’t lost a single match in the new season of the national championship even though they have already played eight matches in the league. In those matches Koln only gained one point with 3:17 goal difference. Koln appeared to be not ready to fight in the Europa League either. In the previous two games in the Group H Koln lost to Arsenal 3:1 and Zrvene Zvezda 0:1.

This Thursday BATE and Koln will play their first game against each other in their history. BATE are playing at home this time and yet, even though it doesn’t make them the favorites of the match, it will still help them. In fact, the main reason why we think that BATE will have an advantage in the upcoming match is that Koln are in some kind of a crisis now.
