Meč poslednjeg kola kvalifikacija za Ligu šampiona, između BATE Borisova i Partizana, doneo nam je samo jedan gol. Nakon više propuštenih šansi za goste, domaćin je konačno razbio monotoniju u rezultatu. Mihail Gordejčuk je u 75. minutu materijalizovao šansu posle izvedenog kornera, te golom lagano loptu usmerio ka golu Živka Živkovića.

Do kraja utakmice se rezultat nije menjao, čak ni nakon uvođenja Saše Ilića, u 89. minutu.

U prvom poluvremenu (45′),  mladi Marko Jevtović je uz burnu reakciju i dva žuta kartona morao da napusti stadion. Nesumnjivi peh, ali ne i jedini razlog poraza crno-belih. Naime, večerašnji meč u Belorusiji je obeležio veliki broj šansi gostiju. Imali smo prilike da vidimo više sjajnih šansi Andrije Živkovića, ali i grešaka u odbrani, te “praznog hoda”, koji je bio jedan od ključnih faktora poraza Partizana.

Ipak, nije sve izgubljeno. Makar ne do naredne nedelje, kada će se igrati revanš meč u Beogradu. Do tada bi Zoran Milinković morao da pronađe rešenje za snažnu igru beloruskog rivala. Ukoliko ekipa želi da igra svoju treću Ligu šampiona.


A UCL playoff match that was filled with possibilities for Belgrade’s FC Partizan, a red card for Marko Jevtović (45′), and a goal by the Belarus team, in the 74. minute.  After a clean corner shot, all Mikhail Gordeichuck had to do was ease the ball into the net, which was exactly what he did.

Partizan’s young star, Andrija Živković, had the chance to turn the result around, but as this match was filled by the Serbian’s lack of materialisation, the final score didn’t change.

But, all is not lost. A week from now, the players of coach Zoran Milinković will have the chance to make up for their mistakes, as the second leg of the match is being played at the Belgrade JNA stadium. By then, the empty runs, lack of defensive ideas, and hot tempers will all have to be under control. That is, if the team wants to play their third Champions League.
