Analysis and forecast for the match of the 2nd round of the qualification of the Conference League BATE – Konyaspor (21.07.2022)

The starting whistle of the Portuguese referee João António Ferreira Gonçalves, which will blow over the Konya Buyuksehir Stady stadium in the Turkish city of Konya at 22:00 Moscow time, will announce the start of the first match of the second qualifying round of the Conference League. Belarusian BATE from Borisov will play with the local football club Konyaspor.

BATE got a ticket to the Conference League for silver medals in the 2021 Belarusian Championship. The backlog from the Soligorsk Shakhtar, which became the champion, was a solid 10 points. Moreover, this was the third season in a row, when the once hegemon of the Belarusian Higher League again failed to regain the championship title.

Konyaspor finished the 2021/2022 season of the Turkish Super League in an honorable third place, leaving behind Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce, which was a repeat of the success of six years ago. These two bronze awards are the only medals for the Turkish middle peasant in its centenary history. Pretty modest.

Nominally, the home match for BATE will take place on the opponent’s field with empty stands. It is not necessary to talk again about the reasons why Belarusian clubs are prohibited from hosting international matches on the territory of their country. In this situation, one should be grateful at least for the very opportunity to play in European competitions, even if on a foreign land.

Interestingly, Belarusian football has been living in this mode for the second year in a row, but in the last season of the Conference League, the Borisov team was lucky with the draw. Dynamo Batumi from Georgia, which was able to fly to Belarus on a direct charter flight, got into rivals. UEFA then gave the go-ahead to hold the match in Borisov.

True, the meeting brought only disappointment to the Belarusian fans. After a promising away victory, albeit with a minimum of 1:0, the Borisovites were waiting for a humiliating home defeat with a score of 1:4. But not so long ago, BATE was noisy in European competition for a whole decade.

Thanks to Agalarov, the popularity of football in Ufa increased by 175%.

He had five exits to the group stage of the Champions League and four exits to the same stage of the Europa League. As well as even three exits in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. However, these times are already in the past, although only three and a half years have passed since the last great success of the Borisov team – a home victory over the London Arsenal.

Failures in qualifying for the Champions League and Europa League in 2019 and 2020, respectively, hit BATE’s budget, which was filled mainly due to financial bonuses from UEFA. Also from the sales of players who appeared in matches with top clubs. Now, however, Borisov’s club has significantly limited opportunities to invite quality players.

The modern realities of the club are forced to sell players even before the start of European competition, and not after a successful performance. Serbian defender Alexander Filipovic and Icelandic midfielder Willum Tor Willumsson left the team from Borisov in the current transfer window, without which it was difficult to imagine the center of the field in recent years.

Replaced by younger players. Yaroslav Oreshkevich moved from Dynamo Brest, which is in the relegation zone this season, and talented striker Damyan Dostanich was redeemed from the Serbian Zharkovo. Also defender Zakhar Volkov returned from Russian Khimki. True, he did not get into the application for leaving Turkey.

The need to build new players into the squad right in the course of the season hurts the team’s results in the ongoing Belarusian championship. BATE has not been able to win for three matches in a row, and the home defeat from the Dzerzhinsky Arsenal, which lacks stars from the sky, scared the Borisov fans a lot before important matches in European competition.

Konyaspor, after a successful season, also started a small renewal of the squad. Top scorer Ahmed Hassan left the team. True, his performance is not particularly impressive – 11 goals scored in 32 games of the season. But the Albanian Sokol Chikaleshi remained in the team, who scored one goal less in 33 games. Although in the spring part of the season he scored only five goals.

The club is still in search of a forward striker. There are rumors of interest in the Brazilian Alexandra Pato from the American Orlando City, but, be that as it may, the matches with BATE will have to be played with the forces that are. It is possible that recruits from the Croatian Rijeka, attacking midfielders Robert Muric and Domagoj Pavicic, will help the Turks well.

However, last season Konyaspor did not have a pronounced scorer, whose statistics would significantly exceed those of other players. A player from any position can score for the green-whites, and BATE, which is in poor shape, will have a very difficult time. You can bet on at least two goals of the Turkish club with a coefficient of 1.74. We’ll probably do that.

Prediction and bet on the match of the qualification of the Conference League BATE – Konyaspor on July 21, 2022

In another situation, one could bet on BATE in a match with Konyaspor, which, although the bronze medalist of a fairly strong Turkish Super League, has just returned from vacation and has not played in European competition for a long time. However, right now, when the most important matches of the year are coming, BATE unexpectedly fell into a hole, from which, it seems, it will take several more weeks to get out until newcomers can be integrated into the game. Only the chance to earn money in European competition will be already missed. In Turkey, it will be difficult to count not only on a positive outcome. We expect at least two goals from the Turks.

Bid: Konyaspor’s individual total over 1.5 goals for 1.74.
