BATE Borisov are a strong team and the leader of football in Belarus for many years. I am not sure if they are as good as they were a few years ago when they won Bayern in a game of Champions League groups, but either way they are a respectable team, especially in front of their fans where they are undefeated the last 3 years and they have played 7 games for Champions League. In the two previous qualification rounds, they eliminated Helsinki and Qarabag. What is worth to mention is that the Belarusian Champion had draws in home but wins in away games which qualified them.
Netherlands Champion, Eindhoven participate directly at play offs of Champions League. Their official obligations just started at the start of the month, along with Netherlands Super Cup final where they were defeated from Feyenoord in penalty. They they played two games for the League where they won 4-0 Utrecht and 2-1 Fortuna Sittard. Their comeback in Champions League groups after two years is their basic goal since last year they were eliminated early in August at the second qualification round of Europa League.
Between these two teams I could say that PSV are the favorite to qualify, but the odds in the first game in Belarus are unfair for the home team. Netherlands football isn't on its big moments the latest years and except Ajax, the other teams haven't presented anything remarkable. I think that BATE won't lose in the first game and my choice would be the Asian H(+0.5) for home team.
