Bate are coming into this match off of a 7-0 home win over spartak shklov in the Belarusian cup. Before that they drew the 1st leg of this tie 1-1 away in Hungary. Bate have been in the champions league before and will feel confident they can win this match and go through to the last qualifying round for the group stages. Last year they were dealt a tough hand with a group of Porto, shaktar and Bilbao, 3 quality sides. Although they finished bottom of the group they did get a home win over Bilbao and they gained a lot of experience for this competition. Also Bate are in great form domestically winning 12 of 14 matches to sit them 8 points clear in the Belarusian premier league.
Videoton are coming off of a 2-1 away win on the weekend against DVTK. This was their first win of the season domestically and they lost the first 2 games of the new season before picking up these 3 points. In the last round of qualifiers they scraped through against Welsh club the new saints. They won away from home 1-0 but lost at home 1-0 which took the game to extra time where they got the winner to get them their first ever successful champions league qualifying win.
Bate are in great home form at the moment winning their last 7 games and 9 of their last 10 in all competitions at the Borisov arena. I think the home advantage will make a big difference to the 1st leg where videoton needed an 89th minute equaliser to scrape a draw. Also I think a big factor is the champions league experience that Bate have. They got a victory over Bilbao here last season and also have actually got a home win over Bayern Munich in the champions league.
