BORISOV, Belarus. July 10 (PSN) – Piast Gliwice took part of the first leg of the first round of UEFA Champions League qualifying on Wednesday and drew their away game 1:1.
Final score: BATE Borisov – Piast Gliwice 1:1
Piast created the first dangerous goal situation in the 15th minute, which saw Czerwinski miss a header at goal from a corner. Five minutes later it was yet again Piast pressuring the home team’s goal. This time an attack by Valencia from the left wing and a cross directly to the penalty box, which saw both Parzyszek and Felix miss the ball. In the 21st minute Dziczek then decided to strike from a long distance effort, but BATE’s goalkeeper Cziczkan calmly collected the shot.
The Belarussian side tried to respond to Piast’s waves of offense, but did so without much effect. Meanwhile, in the 36th minute the Polish champions managed to take the lead. After Felix’s strike on goal, the ball was rebounded off the BATE keeper and found Parzyszek, who headed it into the net.
It wasn’t until the second half, in the 64th minute where the hosts were able to then level the score. After a flat cross from the right wing, the ball went to Dragun in the penalty area who took a precise shot, cleanly beating Piast’s goalkeeper Plach.
Both teams sought for their opportunities to score one more goal, but ultimately the end result remained as a draw result. BATE did end the game on a bad note, which saw Dragun punished with a second yellow at the end and as a result had him red carded.
The second leg will be played next week in Gliwice.
