CSKA Sofia is on an unbeaten streak in their schedule across all major competitions, including the 2-1 win at home against Sirens, which put the host to the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Meanwhile, BATE was directly promoted to the quarter-final in the contest this season. They have won the last four fixtures in their schedule, with three of those having a clean sheet in it.

The host enjoys the home ground advantage, which is why a BTTS will be a suitable option. With their form, both teams are likely to find the back of the net in ninety minutes.

Having a decent away form puts the Belarus outfits in front of the upcoming clash. Besides, their league is slightly competitive than the Bulgarian campaign.

Based on these stats, the away win is likely the ideal bet for the fixture. To be safer, the double chance favoring the visitor will probably be the best bet for the punters.
