Fenerbahce played the first leg with 10 men almost the 90 minutes of the game as important midfielder Meireles was sent of in the 4th minute of the match. However Fenerbahce with all conditions that favor BATE Borisov, could manage to block their attacks and dominated the match more than they would do. The performance was really impressive for me, playing at away in a cold temperature against a good team in the eve of an important league match against Trabzonspor. More interestingly Fenerbahce recorded a victory against Trabzonspor at away match on last Sunday night with a convincing result of 0-3. It is of course right that luck was with their side but it is still important that they did not concede any goal in the last 3 matches. Their defense for sure improved and now Yobo the Nigerian defender is returning to the team after a great ending in Africa with his national team that lifted the African Nations Cup. Bad news is new transfer important midfielder Emre can not play due to the regulation. He was already in the list of Atletico Madrid. Important midfielder Meireles is suspended. But Fenerbahce have large squad and for sure the replacements will do the job.
It is true that Fenerbahce fans will not be allowed to the stadium as they are banned by UEFA for this match. We have witnessed that BATE need more matches to play as 2 months of football break has put them out of form for sure. BATE need to play a few more official matches to get in shape. Fenerbahce must score the first goal and must even record the second as a draw with goals will eliminate them from the tournament. Bet on Fenerbahce AH-1
