The capital club lost in Borisov with a score of 0:2, but went further – in the first match, Roman Grigorchuk’s players scored one more goal (3:0).
- It was very difficult today. BATE played very well. Goal that we conceded... It’s our own fault that we played close to the goal. When you do not play on a natural pitch, it still affects. It was really hard. We play all the time on an artificial turf, and we see for ourselves what the result is. Thank God that we went further, - said Shomko.
- Who do you want as opponents?
- There will be no easy teams. We need to play with dignity in the group stage. Present Kazakhstan in a better light. And God grant, if we can – to solve the task of advancing from the group.
