In a week ago, the home game against BATE City had already lost three players of the defensive line due to damage to batey. And if Dmitry Aliseiko, having quickly dealt with health problems, today took the usual position – on the right in defense, the Ukrainian Evgeny Chagovts and Uruguayan Facundo Keiros will need more time to recover. As a result, the young pupils of the club – Gleb Yakushevich and Maxim Kasarab – were given another chance to prove themselves in a responsible game.
Annoyed by a bad start to the season – only a couple of points in four matches, representatives of the western regional center wanted to quickly establish their order on the lawn and put serious pressure ahead. Fortunately, Fyodor Scherbachenko’s wards were ready for such a scenario. And, although they spent most of their time on their own possessions, the offensive aspirations of the opponents were calmly and reliably extinguished. Only the blows of Kuaja and Gigero were dangerous – Pavel Priszivako looked good in both episodes.
In the 33rd minute, the visitors led by squeezing the maximum out of a quick counter-raid. Anton Shramchenko threw in a breakthrough from his half of the field Michael Lopez, who made a home run and a classy grassroots volley in the back post opened the scoring for Minsk in the official meetings of the ball – 0:1.
After the break, Neman expected to increase the turnover and built a few pieces. But Pavel Prisheniko worked heroically, fending off shots from zubovich, Kuaji and Shukurov. Well, our guys again demonstrated an example of a prudent attitude to implementation. Anton Shramchenko hung from the front line, and Egor Bogomolovsky closed – 0:2.
It should be noted that this striker had no goals for the Red-Blues before. Such a plot turn clearly cooled the fervor of the “green-yellow” who tried to turn the tide of events, but did not come up with anything interesting.
The capital team looked solid, thorough – and naturally swam into the victorious harbor.
