Sheriff Tiraspol vs BATE Borisov match preview

After both were dumped out of Champions League qualifying last mid-week, who will get their European campaign back on track?

FC Sheriff Tiraspol led Maccabi Haifa 2-0 at one stage, Amine Talal on target in both legs, before totally collapsing in Israel, eventually beaten 4-2 on aggregate after extra time.

Roberto Bordin led Sheriff into the Champions League group stages for the very first time two seasons ago, before also getting into the Europa League last time round.

Thus, the Divizia Națională champions come into this tie confident of advancing, aiming to claim an unassailable first leg advantage in Transnistria.

BATE Borisov meantime were demolished 11-5 by Aris Limassol in Champions League qualifying, smashed 6-2 in Cyprus before a 5-3 reverse in Mezőkövesd last Tuesday.

The Belorussian champions are aiming to reach a first UEFA group stage in five years, but are certainly not helped by having to play ‘home’ matches behind-closed-doors at a neutral venue in Hungary.

The winners of this tie will take on the losers of Klaksvíkar Ítróttarfelag vs Molde in the UEFA Europa League play-offs.

The losers drop into the Europa Conference League play-off round, where they’ll meet Lincoln Red Imps or Ballkani.
