FC Koln vs BATE live stream Thursday 02 November 2017 UEFA Europa League
In the match of the first round, held in Borisov, Cologne in the starting 45 minutes possessed a noticeable advantage, but to translate it into scored goals could not. The payoff came after the break, when Alex Rios realized his chance and formalized the first victory of the Belarusian team in the group tournament (1: 0). 

For Cologne, this defeat was the third in three starting rounds, and the German team is an outsider of the quartet "N" with zero in the graph of points scored. BATE with 4 points caught up with Crvena Zvezda and shares with her the second place, behind the leading Arsenal by 5 points. 

"Gunners" confirm the status of the favorite, which they were awarded immediately after the draw and it is likely to issue a ticket to the 1/16 finals after the upcoming tour. In the struggle for the second place the chances of Belarusians and Serbs look more promising. 

The Germans also did not lose hope of leaving the group. But Cologne's game is very unconvincing, that in the national championship, that in the European arena. However, the Rhine team, who entered European competition for the first time in 25 years, will not give up without a fight. 

That's just the right to make a mistake with her, there is no more, defeat in a home match with BATE will deprive her of even theoretical chances. In the confrontation between the Barysiv and the Belgrade key, their face-to-face meeting on the field of "loaves" is seen, where you can not only take 3 points, but also get an advantage in personal fights. So the fatal defeat on German soil for BATE, where they lost the last two games in 1: 4, will not, but the victory does not guarantee anything. 

In the event of an unsuccessful development of events, the Belarusians need to try to lose minimally in order to maintain their advantage over Cologne in personal meetings. In a tight struggle, which can unfold for the second ticket to the playoffs, this can be of no small importance.
