In the match of the penultimate round, the “Citizens” at the tractor stadium met with Vitebsk. Minskers confidently started the match and by the 17th minute they led 2-0. Oleg Evdokimov and Alexander Vasilyev scored goals.
By the end of the first half, Vadim Skripchenko’s players slowed down, and they paid for it. Artem Leonov repelled a free-kick, but Evgeny Klopotsky did not leave a chance for our goalkeeper.
The second half was a mixed success – in the first half it was more persistent “Vitebsk” and in the end “Minsk” had chances to succeed. It seemed that the match would end with a minimal victory of our team, but in the last compensated minute the visitors’ striker zakhar Chervyakov equalized.
