BATE Borisov Team News
For most of the season, the home team was “hunting” for first place in the table in the domestic championship. Only recently they managed to overtake Energetik, so now they are the leaders of the championship, and that was after a big fight.
They have only one point more than Energetika and they never manage to gain a serious advantage. The fact that they won only 6 points in the last six matches, and in the last round they suffered a heavy defeat at home against the thirteenth-placed team in the table, does not help them either.
The home field is one of their strongest weapons, and also the biggest chance for a favorable result. Although the opponent is much stronger, the BATE players are very capable of providing a very serious resistance.
Considering the importance of the match, we expect a very offensive game from the home team, more precisely a total offensive towards the opponent’s goal.
Konyaspor Team News
However, the team from Turkey did not qualify for the Champions League at the end of last season. In the last four rounds, they “disintegrated”, which Fenerbahce knew how to punish.
Despite this failure, the fact remains that they were one of the toughest teams in the league last season. Given that they strengthened during the summer break, we do not doubt that they will reach the group stage of this competition with maximum focus and motivation.
During the preparatory period, they did not make the best impression, which could create a false perception of their strength and quality.
Although they have the epithet of big favorites and everyone expects them to advance to the next stage of the qualifications, we believe that the Konyaspor players will not underestimate the opponent and that they will try to finish the job. already in the first game.
This will be the first official duel between these teams.
Injuries and suspensions
There are no reported absences.
BATE Borisov vs. Konyaspor Prediction
The home team entered a result crisis, and absolutely deservedly bear the epithet of outsiders in this match. Participation in the group stage of the Conference League would mean a lot for this club, but we are not optimistic that they will overcome this obstacle.
The Konyaspor team learned last season what it means to lightly underestimate the opponent, and we believe that they will take this game as seriously as possible.
This time we will avoid predicting the winner, so we decided to bet on goals. Both teams have enough quality to score at least one goal, which in our opinion is the most realistic.
