Goal brings place in history
BATE defeats Granit — 1:0 — becoming 13-time champion of Belarus, as anticipated
BATE again claims championship cup
On the Luninets pitch, the hosts did their best to hinder the Borisov squad, foiling their attempts to score. It wasn’t until the end of the first period, just three minutes before the end of regular time, that Nikolay Signevich converted Max Volodko’s penalty kick into a goal. BATE headquarters then went to buy champagne to celebrate.
The current championship title is the eleventh in a row for the club, only surpassed in Europe by Rosenborg, Skonto and Vaduz.
This season’s remaining matches are a mere formality for BATE, although head coach Alexander Yermakovich has urged the squad to maintain focus. He comments, “Everyone wants to play and score. We have footballers aiming for individual prizes and we have young players eager to prove themselves, to earn more time on the pitch.”
BATE’s final matches of the season should continue to be worthy of our attention.
