BATE overpriced at 2/1 to collect another Group G home win

| 02.12.2010

Dinamo have more to gain than simply qualifying for the knockout stages of the Europa League by beating BATE Borisov as they can also move into pole position to finish at the head of Group E.

However, BATE have won both of their home games in the group so far and seem a huge price at 2/1 to maintain this winning run against Dinamo.

The recently crowned Belarusian champions are unbeaten in six European games, which includes a 2-2 draw in their game in the Ukraine against Dinamo earlier in Group E.

Dinamo may be hoping that BATE taking things slightly easier bearing in mind they are already safely through and they have already showed their attacking intent in the competition by having more shots on target than any other team.

It is 13/10 that Dinamo Kiev take the three points they need to seal their progression.

The other Group E game sees Sheriff Tiraspol entertain AZ Alkmaar and both teams know it is out of their hands whether or not they reach the last 32 of the Europa League.

However, a defeat for either would definitely confirm their elimination and a slight favourite would be a win for the Moldovan hosts.

AZ have not won in nine European away matches, but are unbeaten in their last six domestic games, which includes victories over FC Twente and Ajax.

Both teams are 8/5 to take the three points, while the draw that would help neither team is available at 12/5.

The first meeting between the two swung in the favour of AZ, although they needed a late winner to secure a 2-1 victory at home.

BATE have scored seven goals in their two Group E home games and a £10 bet on them beating Dinamo Kiev 3-1 could return £250. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
