FC Dinamo Minsk into Europa League 3rd qualifying round

Two Belarusian football clubs held home matches of the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League on July 20.

Dinamo Minsk won against the Macedonian club Rabotnicki from Skopje. At the 21st minute the captain of the Minsk club Alexander Noiok struck in the near corner for 1:0 scoreline.

In the second half of the match Macedonian footballers started in a very good way forcing the hosts to think only about defense. Goalkeeper Andrei Klimovich and his partners managed to withstand, and then used their chances. In the 70th minute Nino Galovic made it 2:0 and Anton Saroka added a third in 15 minutes making it 3:0.

A week ago in the capital of Macedonia the teams drew the game 1:1.

In the third round of the Europa League qualification Dinamo Minsk will face Cyprian AEK, who defeated Irish Cork City.

Another Belarusian club Dinamo Brest failed to qualify. The Brest team met with Austrian SC Rheindorf Altach after first-leg draw 1:1. However, the Belarusians did not have a chance against the Austrians in that game and lost 0:3 at home.
