Vidi vs BATE Prediction & Match Preview

Vidi vs BATE
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 20 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Groupama Arena (Budapest).

Vidi and BATE take on each other in a match which could likely determine their Group L destiny given it’s hard to say they’ll grab much in clashes with the likes of Chelsea. This is why both managers will be desperate to bag a three-pointer at the start of the campaign and we could be in for a quite entertaining evening of football on Thursday at Groupama Arena.

The hosts enjoyed a remarkable run in the Champions league qualifications. They skipped three different obstacles to reach the play-offs where AEK Athens eliminated them 3-2 on aggregate.

BATE, who failed to progress form the group stage last time out, also ended their Champions League campaign in the play-offs stage. They shipped six goals to Dutch giants PSV on the occasion. Will such a tough failure affect team’s performance against Hungarian champions here?

Vidi vs BATE: Head-to-head

The two sides battled it out in the third qualifying round of Champions League three years ago.

BATE advanced 2-1 on aggregate thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory in front of the home crowd.

Vidi vs BATE: Prediction

Back-to-back European and domestic affairs took a toll on Vidi’s players who got off to a rather dismal start to the new NB I Liga campaign. The hosts are as many as 11 points short of table-toppers Ferencvaros after only six rounds and they will generally come into the group opener low on confidence.

The head coach Marko Nikolic can be worried because of the lack of meticulousness at the back since Vidi shipped seven goals in last four games in all competitions.

BATE are by no means a dangerous attacking side at this level, but they have strong weapons in the likes of Mirko Ivanic and Igor Stasevich who will be the biggest threat to Vidi’s goal here.

From betting perspective, backing goals at both ends look to be the value bet at 2.00 odds. Each of last four games Vidi played saw the BTTS option “come in” and we just have to try with such scenario here as well at such high odds.
