BATESlovan 1:1


The score was 1:0 but the Barysau team missed a goal 10 minutes before the end of the first Champions league playoff.

Barysau BATE failed to defeat Bratislava Slovan in an out match of the Champions League playoff. However, it still has a good chance to make it to the group stage.

Tomasz Jablonski managed to save his team from Syarhei Kryvets pass during the 44th minute. Vital Radzivonau did not manage to score a goal in the second period. Then veteran of the Slovak team Robert Vitek scored a goal 10 minutes before the end of the match despite the resistance of two BATE fullbacks.

The return match will be played in Barysau Arena on August 26. BATE needs to win with any score. A nil-nil draw will do too. If the score is 1:1, it may result in additional time or even penalty shots. Any other result will be good for the Slovak team.

The winner will get to the group stage of the Champions League and the loser will continue the autumn season in Europa League.
