Rosenborg vs BATE Borisov Match Preview
This tie is balanced perfectly due to the away goals rule and we are backing BATE Borisov to convert their first-leg advantage into a place in the Champions League third qualifying round.
Last week, we predicted BATE would take a one-goal lead with them to Norway, but the fact it is 2-1 rather than the 1-0 we envisaged gives Rosenborg plenty of hope that they can overcome their deficit.
Igor Stasevich gave BATE an early lead from the penalty spot and after Anders Konradsen had ensured the scores were level at the break, Maksim Skavysh won it on the night for the Belarusians.
It always looked to be among the most closely-matched ties in this round and nothing has changed in that regard, while both teams were given the weekend off in their domestic leagues to give them the best possible preparation for the return leg.
Rosenborg will be encouraged that they have won five of their last six games on their own pitch, scoring three or more goals on four of those occasions, and another such triumph here would be enough to send them through.
However, BATE have been similarly impressive on their travels, winning five of their last six on the road and drawing the other, including a 2-1 win at Polish champions Piast Gliwice in the previous round, and they may just be able to thwart Rosenborg’s hopes of a fightback.
