BATE hosts the Germans of FC Koln in Belarus this Thursday on a Europa League match…
In a group where one of the qualification spots should be Arsenal’s, BATE, Koln and Red Star should fight for the other one.
With the first two facing each other this round, the chance for BATE and Koln to reduce the distance is high since one of those 2 teams will surely drop points.
BATE’s situation is slightly better after two matches. With one point, the team sits in 3rd place, having tied with Crvena Zvezda away from home but being battered at home by Arsenal.
In the league, the team is fighting for the title, sitting in 3rd place with 54 points, just 2 points behind the leaders Shakhtyor.

BATE Borisov vs FC Koln – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Koln’s start to the season couldn’t have been worse. The team is yet to win an official match this season, be it in the Bundesliga or in the Europa League.
In the Bundesliga, the team is in last place with 1 point gained after 8 matches – 1 draw and 7 losses. On the Europa League, the situation isn’t much different, since they have 2 losses in 2 matches.
Looking at a Bundesliga team always generates some fear. But Koln’s form doesn’t inspire any confidence.
Besides that, the Germans will start to worry themselves more about the Bundesliga. Besides all of that, BATE is very strong at home and should win
