However, the game was not out of reach as FC Zvezda’s Hayk Moshanian obtained a red card for his second yellow card foul of the match in the 70th minute. Nevertheless, BGU continued to attack FC Minsk in this Minsk derby. That perseverance paid off on a counterattack in extra time along the left hand side of the field. A solid through pass caught the defense of FC Minsk napping. Djasur Yaxshiboev timed his run at the right time and bolted past the defense rather easily. He caught up to the pass and slotted the ball into the lower right-hand side of the net.
Energetyk-BGU is now the only team in the Belarus Premier League without any losses or ties. Right now, they have proven to be the best team so far. With the loss, FC Minsk drops back to third place remaining at six points.
