One of the Group H duels will take place in Belgrade, where Red Star is hosting BATE Borisov at Stadion Rajko Mitic.

Red Star Belgrade

The Belgrade team haven’t been able to go through any of the UEFA qualifications since season 2007/2008. After ten years, they finally managed to enter the group stage of UEFA Europe League. They eliminated Krasnodar in the play-offs round thanks to the two goals that they scored in Russia.

They appear to be in a great shape. The defeat in Russia against Krasnodar has been their only loss in the last 15 matches they played. At home, they haven’t been defeated since May, and have conceded only three goals in total. They are coming from a clean-sheets win away in Serbian Super Liga, where they are currently the first ranked.

BATE Borisov

After the elimination from UCL, they moved down to the play-offs round of the Europe League. They defeated Oleksandria with a combined score of 3 – 2 and thus entered the group stage. Last year, they were eliminated from the play-offs round by Astana.

They are coming from their second consecutive clean-sheets win in their national league. Currently, they are the third-ranked team in Belarus.
