⚽ Forecasting, statistics and probable teams
BATE definitely dominates domestic competition. Since 2006 he has won the title without interruption in Belarus, so this season’s season is the most important for the Borisov club. The yellow-blues hoping to re-perform their performance in 2015-16, when they reached the Champions League groups. Last year they stopped in the playoff, where they were eliminated by PSV Eindhoven. Even so, they continued in the Europa League groups and made their way into the European Spring. Finally, the beautiful dream ended in sixteen, after a double with Arsenal.BATE is in full championship and has not lost since May. The players trained by Alexey Baga (in the first year of coaching) are admirably handled in the defense: in the 14 stages so far they have received only 5 goals. But the lot is not an extraordinary one and it is quoted by the transfermarkt at 12 million euros. The last acquisition was the most expensive – Icelandic midfielder Willum Thor Willumsson was bought for 250,000 euros.
Probable team BATE Borisov: Chichkan – Filipenko, Filipovic, Volkov, Rios – Baga, Stasevich, Yablonski, Dragun – Dubaijic, Skavysh
Piast Gliwice has 74 years of existence but goes through the best moment in history. He won for the first time the title in Poland after he ended the rule of the Warsaw Legion. He is thus preparing to play his first match in the UEFA Champions League preliminaries. In the previous Europa League participations he could not even get a victory – he gave a double hand with Qarabag (2013-14) and IFK Goteborg (2016-17).Piast chose not to sell his best players and will try to defend his title in the same formula. 200,000 euros paid this summer for reinforcements, far too little to make remarkable developments in European competitions. The championship in Poland has not yet begun, with the Supercup going up this weekend between matches with BATE.
The probable team Piast Gliwice: Plach – Kirkeskov, Czerwinski, Huk, Holubek – Dziczek, Hateley – Konczkowski, Valencia, Badia – Parzyszek
Football Prediction of the Day BATE Borisov vs Piast Gliwice
We will have a very balanced match between two teams close to market share. Surely this double hand will be decided at the tactical level and I expect none of the bands to force it out of use.Piast won the Polish Championship due to defensive, the defense game being very solid. BATE can also practice a pragmatic football and I do not expect to be attacked.
Bet Tips: BATE Borisov
BATE Borisov does not necessarily have better players than Piast but has the experience on her side. The Belarusian group also has the advantage of being in full championship, therefore it is at maximum speed. We are expected to see a goal match if we look at the latest results of the two teams. BATE comes after three games in which they scored 13 goals in total. The Polish have overtaken this lead – in the last 3 games Piast scored 16 goals. I have the conviction that it will be a spectacular game.
