Date: Tuesday, 19 July, 2016
Start time: 18:00 UK
SJK will host BATE Borisov in the second game between them from the 2nd qualifying round of Champions League. The match is on Tuesday and will start at 18:00 UK time at “OmaSP Stadion”.
SJK lost the first game against BATE in Belarus with 2:0 and their mission to advance in Europe seems almost impossible. It’s a surprise that loose given the fact that SJK won the Finland championship last season but in the new season after 17 games they are in 7th place from 12 teams with 23 points – 14 less than the leader Mariehamn.
BATE won with 2:0 their first game in Europe this season and it seems that they will advance further. The championship in Belarus is also active and after 15 rounds BATE Borisov is the leader with 35 points – 8 more than the second Shakhtyor. The team didn’t loose six games in a row in all competitions and won five of them so this says enough about the form of the BATE.
SJK hadn’t recent experience in Champions league qualification while BATE Borisov plays in group stage in Champions league almost every year and performed very well in them. The experience, the class and the recent form is with BATE Borisov and I think that they will win again although the match is in Finland.
