Aris Limassol vs BATE Borisov match preview

Having won their very first Cypriot title last season, how far will Aris Limassol’s Champions League debut take them?

To date, the Light Brigade have only ever featured in one Europe tie, this coming 12 months ago when Neftçi Bakı knocked them out of Europa Conference League qualifying.

So, can Aleksey Shpilevsky’s team claim a victory in this first leg, knowing that, should they get through this tie, they’d be guaranteed group stage football?

BATE Borisov meanwhile have vastly more expirence on the continent, featuring in nine group stages between 2008 and 2018, failing to get back there though in four attempts since the latter.

The Yellow-Blues began this campaign by overcoming Partizani Tirana, leaving Arena Kombëtare with a 1-1 draw before a 2-0 victory at Mezőkövesdi Városi Stadion a week ago.

Even with the second leg set to be played behind-closed-doors at a neutral venue in Budapest, Aris will feel this match at Alphamega Stadium is must win.

The losers drop into the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round, where they’ll face the losers of FC Sheriff Tiraspol vs Maccabi Haifa.
