A long-awaited victory. Minsk defeated Slavia on the road


After three defeats in a row, the “Citizens” today in Mozyr won a confident victory over Slavia.

For Minsk, the games in Mozyr have always been characterized by a stubborn, uncompromising struggle, and it has always been difficult to get a victory at the Youth Stadium for the capital’s players.

Minsk got into the “black streak” after losing three matches in a row. Our team only needed a win today. In addition, Andrei Razin did not need to tune his players to Saturday’s meeting.

The first twenty-nine minutes of the game were inconclusive. But in the thirtieth minute Dmitry Prishchepa from the redevelopment of the penalty area made a powerful blow on the goal of the hosts of the field, the ball hit the post and bounced straight to Roman Gribovsky. The forward was not confused by such a gift and definitely punched into the goal. With the score 0:1 the teams went to the break.
