FC Astana Match in the Champions League Is in Jeopardy

All because of the complicated political situation in Belarus

The meeting in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League between FC Dynamo Brest and FC Astana may be postponed or transferred to a neutral field. This was reported by Pressball.

According to the publication, there is a real possibility that the game between the strongest clubs of Belarus and Kazakhstan will not take place in Brest as scheduled.

«If the tense situation in Belarus lasts for another week, then the Champions League in Brest might be under challenge. In any case, the UEFA and FC Astana are probably closely following the Belarus news. They might even be better aware than Belarusians themselves who are having internet issues these days,» Pressball notes.

It should be added that the Dynamo Brest-Astana match in the first qualifying round of the Champions League 2020/21 season is scheduled for August 18 in Brest. All European Cup preliminary rounds will consist of one game.
