Rosenborg vs BATE predictions and betting tips for tonight’s Champions League qualifying fixture. Rosenborg welcome BATE Borisov to Norway hoping to overcome a 1-2 defeat in the 1st leg in front of their fans on Wednesday, 31st July. BATE on the other hand will lean on their tight defense to get them through to the next round.
Norwegian record league champions, Rosenborg got into the Champions League qualification 1st round by winning the league where they comfortably defeated Linfield 6-0 in aggregate to qualify to the 2nd round. Their best performance came in 1996/97 season where they lost to Juventus in the quarter finals but they will struggle to get anywhere close to that stage of the completion after the 2-1 loss away in the 1st leg of this tie.
Belarussian champions BATE Borisov almost had a perfect 1st leg apart from the away goal that they conceded but they will be confident going to Norway that they can get the job done. Bate are playing some good football and find themselves 2nd in their league with a game in hand, largely due to their great defense that has conceded only 6 goals in 15 games which they will depend on to progress to the next round.
Rosenborg overcame a poor start to the season where they didn’t win their first 5 games. They have since climbed back up to 6th place on the back some good form where they have lost only 1 of their last 7 games.
BATE have only lost twice in the 15 games they have played and considering the strength of their defense we predict them to go through the next round with a 0-0 draw.
