Start time: 19:00 UK
Bate Borisov hosts SJK Seinäjoki in a game first leg from second qualifying round in Champions League.
Last year BATE Borisov achieved impressive success in the Champions League. In addition to being qualified for the group stage of the tournament, the Belarusian team won five points, standing up against teams of Barcelona, Roma and Bayer Leverkusen. In last five years, BATE played in group stage four times it shows in how serious the team turned the team from Borisov. Now, at “Borisov Arena” BATE will host Finnish champion SJK Seinäjoki who has no experience in Champions League.
The team of SJK Seinäjoki ending HJK Helsinki’s run of 6 titles in a row in Finland. This is an amazing success for the team, who promoted to Veikkausliiga in 2014 year. Last year SJK participate in Europa League but lost in First qualifying round from FH from Iceland with 0-2 Agg. In the upcoming game, they perfectly know their odds are great, as they face very overbearing team, but will try to create problems of Belarusians.
Last season in qualifying rounds BATE achieved three wins at home against Dundalk (2-1), Videoton (1-0) and Partizan (1-0). In group stage they beat Roma with 3-2 and made draw with Bayer 1-1. They play very strong at “Borisov Arena” and I think that BATE will reach good win.
