Football: UEFA tells Shakhter to mow grass before BATE clash

The BATE-Shahtsyor match will start in Karaganda at 4.30 p.m. and will be broadcast live by Belarus-2.

BATE lost 0:1 in a home match a week ago. They will have to win now. This is the only way for BATE to keep participating in the world’s most prestigious football tournament.

Bookmakers and football specialists think that BATE has an advantage but the Belarusian players were restrained in their comments. The coach, Victar hancharenka, admitted that the team was under pressure.

Meanwhile, there have been some amusing incidents connected with the match. The high grass in the stadium discomforted BATE. An UEFA delegate solved the problem by making Kazakhs mow the stadium.
