Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Arena Kombetare will host Tuesday’s football game between Partizani and BATE, the two teams who meet for the first time ever in European competitions. Partizani won the Albanian Superliga thanks to a 2-0 win over Teuta on the last day of the season and, as a result, they represent their homeland in the Champions League qualifiers for the first-time since 2019. You should bear in mind that the Red Bulls failed to find the net in the previous four encounters in the elite competition.
BATE, on the other hand, are in the middle of the season, with the team occupying 4th place in the Belarus Premier League ahead of the trip to Albania. Since Partizani are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. A man to watch in the home team will be Victor da Silva, while Partizani defenders should have Valeri Gromyko at bay.
Highlighted Team (BATE Borisov):
Bate Borisov are a Belarusian club based in Borisov. BATE is an acronym of Borisov Automobile and Tractor Electronics and it has to be noted that club was founded in 1973. One year later BATE Borisov wan Belarusian Soviet Socialist Republic title and they won two more trophies in the competition (1976, 1979) before being disbanded in 1984.
In 1996 the club was re-established and they have been dominating the Belarusian Premier League ever since. The Belarusian giants won their 13th domestic trophy in the post-Soviet era in 2016, with the team finishing the season 11 points clear of second-placed Shakhtyor Soligorsk. BATE Borisov qualified for the Champions League group stages for the first time in the 2008/2009 season, but they failed to make it to the knockout stages of the elite competition.
A number of top-class footballers played for the club in the past and the likes of Alexander Hleb, Vitali Kutuzov and Yuri Zhevnon should be mentioned. BATE play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, while they wear yellow when playing on the road.
