Torpedo-BelAZ, Dinamo Minsk knocked out of 2016/17 Europa League

Footballers of Torpedo Zhodino and Dinamo Minsk have failed to reach the play-offs for the Europa League.

The Minsk team, after the away draw against Serbian Vojvodina from Novi Sad (1:1), had a good chance to win on aggregate in the 3rd qualifying round. However, in the return match in Brest, Dinamo played poorly, conceding a goal in each half - 0:2.

Torpedo went to Vienna to meet Rapid after a 0-0 draw in Zhodino. But only in the first half did the Zhodino side play well. Then Rapid finally found their game and did not leave a chance to the Belarusian team - 3:0.

Thus, FC BATE remained the only Belarusian team in European competitions this season. BATE went down to Dundalk on aggregate in the Champions League 3rd qualifying round and will have to play in the Europa League playoffs. The play-off draw will take place today at UEFA headquarters in the Swiss Nyon.
