Tuesday’s Champions League fixture mark the first ever competitive meeting between BATE and Qarabag.

Qarabag vs BATE Prediction

It is a fair assessment from the bookies to put Qarabag as favorites for the first leg, since BATE have a terrible record in European away nights.

This can be coupled with Qarabag’s excellent home record in qualifying stages, unbeaten in 11 with 6 wins and 5 draws.

Furthermore, the hosts have conceded just 2 goals in those 11 games and it make sense to go with a direct home win for Tuesday’s game.

BATE do not score a lot of goals on the road as well and they like to keep this tight and take the decisive game to their home without any damage.

Thus, under 2.5 goals make it to the top of second best bet for this Champions League fixture.
