BATE Borisov vs Rosenborg Match Preview
This looks to be among the most closely-matched ties in the second qualifying round of the Champions League and we are backing BATE Borisov to take a narrow lead to Norway.
These teams got through their opening test in contrasting styles and while Rosenborg were comfortably the more impressive, they did look to have received a much easier draw.
Rosenborg took on Linfield, the champions of Northern Ireland, and prevailed 6-0 on aggregate with Anders Konradsen scoring a double in the second leg in Trondheim.
BATE had to work much harder, but their opposition was the Polish champions Piast Gliwice who admittedly were competing in the Champions League for the first time.
At 2-1 down on aggregate entering the final 10 minutes of the second leg in Poland, BATE looked to be going out but they turned the tie on its head with a Hervaine Moukam penalty and a decisive goal from Zakhar Volkov.
Both of these clubs are in the middle of their domestic seasons and in good form, although Rosenborg have plenty of work to do if they are to catch Molde at the top of the table and retain the Eliteserien title.
There may not be much in it over the course of these two games, but BATE are a tough proposition at home – where they beat Arsenal in last season’s Europa League knockout stage – and are fancied to grind out an advantage for the return match in Scandinavia.
