BATE Borisov vs Piast Gliwice
Champions League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Borisov Arena (Barysaw).
The hosts tasted a 2-1 victory in their last game against Din Minsk on the road, and will certainly be optimistic of clinching the win when they welcome visitors Piast Gliwice this week.
The squad have been on an impressive run of form on home soil as well, with their last home game against Vitebsk finishing 3-0 at the end of the ninety minutes. The squad broke the deadlock and sealed the game with all three goals even before the teams had headed for the break.
They have won all of their last five games at home, and have scored a total of eleven goals in the process while conceding not more than one.
The visitors, on the other hand, finished their previous league campaign at the helm of the table, with a four-point lead over the runners up. The team have not been efficient on the road though, with their last five fixtures away from home returning just two wins.
Their last away game against Pogon Szczecin finished in a frustrating draw with the visitors failing to find the back of the net despite making three shots on target.
The winners, at the end of the two legs, will have to face the team that comes out on top in the round of sixteen tie between Linfield and Rosenborg.

BATE Borisov vs Piast Gliwice Prediction
The home side are almost certain to taste success when the squads lock horns with each other for the first time at the Borisov Arena on Wednesday.
The squad had their scoring boots on in their last five fixtures on home soil, and so we can certainly count on them to find the back of the net without fail. They have also been keeping a very good clean sheet record at home, and have recorded four cleans sheets in their last five games.
The visitors have scored just five goals in their last five outings, while conceding four, and were particularly poor in their last trip on the road with that fixture ending in a stalemate.
We can certainly expect a low scoring clash between the two sides, with the win certain to go to the hosts at the final whistle.
