BATE Borisov vs HJK Champions League Predictions
In the second qualifying round of the Champions League we will face two emblems that will win their respective championships with BATE to be champion of Belarus and HJK of Helsinki to be champion of Finland.
The BATE is a team with European experience whether of the Champions League or the European League are several editions in which BATE marks an international presence facing in this round a team with much less European experience and who has already started his walk in this Champions League qualifications in the first round.
The BATE appear on this tie as a favorite and to play at home will have to prove that all the last years to acquire European experience were not in vain.
The Belarusian lineup is in the running because their championship is in progress but that is not where they will have an advantage because in Finland the same happens.
BATE follow the isolated lead of the Belarusian league after 17 meetings with seven points of advance over the second, the Dynamo of Minsk.
BATE comes to this game with four consecutive wins in their league which shows the good times of the champions in Belarus.
The HJK in Helsinki is the current Finnish football champion and this year history may repeat itself as the formation of the capital leads its league after 20 days with seven more points than second-placed Rovaniemi.
The formation of the Finnish capital comes from four consecutive victories in the league, two for the Finnish league and two for the Champions League where HJK have already played in the first round having eliminated Vikingur from the Faroe Islands with victory in the Faroe Islands by two balls to one and victory in Helsinki by three balls to one, in a total of 5-2 in a tie where the HJK demonstrated strong superiority on a very accessible equipment.

To play at home I believe that BATE can get a good result here in view of the trip to Scandinavia in the second leg. I believe in a Belarusian victory in this first game in what will be a very different test for HJK.
