BATE Borisov vs Chelsea: Can Bate turn campaign around when they face efficient Chelsea?

04:02, 07 Nov 2018

Bate welcome Chelsea to Belarus for the return leg of their Europa League Group L on Thursday. The hosts will be looking to avenge a 3-1 thumping suffered at the hands of the Blues during their visit to The Stamford Bridge. The match will be played at the 13,000 capacity Borisov Arena.


The hosts are currently leading the Belarusian Premier League and will be coming from a streak of three wins, the latest a 1-0 home win over Neman. Things look different in the Europa League where they sit bottom of the group with three points. They can change things with any points collected as they are behind PAOK and Videoton only on goal difference.

Chelsea are undergoing a rejuvenation under manager Maurizio Sarri and will again look to coast to a win that would make it four in four. They are in control of the group and come from a 3-1 win over Crystal palace in the Premier League
