Piast Gliwice – BATE Borisov, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR GLIWICE - BATE
Piast Gliwice is currently building a great team and it’s no coincidence that they did not lose from BATE, although the Ukrainians were pretty much favored. Naturally, things are changing now. The champions of Poland are in great shape. They did not make any major changes in the lineup, but rather strengthened it and although they have no experience in UCL, they now look much better.
BATE know they need 1 goal to get back into the game. 1-1 in the first match is not as bad a result for them. We think they will not throw for this goal in mad attacks because they see that the Poles are dangerous from counter-attacks. Overall, BATE is not in bad shape, but they have to explore their opponent well, as they have not played against such a team soon.
Expert view : When teams from different leagues come at different levels at this time of the year when the championships have not yet begun, it is not easy to judge who will present themselves how against the particular rival. For this purpose, there are different methods. For example, we can see that purely theoretical at the moment, although BATE is a much more famous team, Piast Gliwice has a more expensive and quality team. Since they do not have any participation in the Champions League before this season, we think they will be more conservative against BATE and will be cautious as we do not see a particularly score match. Both teams are defensive by presumption. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.67.
