Our football match prediction:
BATE Borisov will be looking to bounce back from a heavy 5-2 loss to Koln when they welcome Crvena Zvezda at their Borisov Arena. Aleksandr Yerkamovich’s team sit in third place in Group H, but a win over the Serbian side will see them climb to second place in the standings. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in Belgrade earlier in the process and yet another close encounters is on the cards. BATE are tough to beat at home, but seeing that Crvena Zvezda have been producing fine performances in the Europa League term, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in their penultimate group game. Vladan Milojevic’s men proved their worth in a goalless draw with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Thursday’s football match against the Belarusian champions.
